VLM progress

Since it separation from CityJet Belgium airline VLM has been making steady progress with route openings and will on 27 April introduce new operations to Waterford, Ireland from Luton and Birmingham airports.  (See BTN 3 November)

The first new service in January was Antwerp – Geneva, linking the major business hubs with two return daily flights each weekday.  February then saw the airline announce multiple routes between Rotterdam (Netherlands) – Hamburg (Germany) and Antwerp – Hamburg.  Passengers will be able to choose from two return Rotterdam – Hamburg flights each weekday from Monday 13 April with twice-daily return weekday flights between Antwerp and Hamburg beginning on Monday 20 April.

VLM Airlines then announced new scheduled flights between Liège and Avignon, Nice, Bologna and Venice.  From 1 May passengers can choose from 36 connections: five return flights each week to Nice and Venice, and four return flights each week to Avignon and Bologna.  These routes also include Saturdays and Sundays.

Waterford to Luton will operate a twice daily weekday, along with one return flight on the weekends.  Birmingham is four flights per week, Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays.

All VLM operations use the ubiquitous 50-passenger Fokker 50, which the airline has a fleet of 12, also available for charter and airline ‘fill-in’ operations.

The introduction of the Russian S100 commuter aircraft has been delayed.  www.vlm.com
