From 27 April, VLM Airlines will begin operating a twice daily service from Monday to Friday and a daily service at the weekend between London Luton Airport and Waterford in south east Ireland, a route previously popular from Luton but which had not been served for some time.
VLM Airlines has become the fourth new airline to start operating from London Luton this year and so far in 2015 the airport has announced 12 new routes. The news from VLM comes at a time when London Luton is investing in a £100 million transformation project aiming to increase annual capacity from 12 million to 18 million passengers.
Arthur White, CEO of VLM Airlines, said “We’re very confident there is a sustainable demand for reliable and convenient direct air services between London and the south east of Ireland. The route is an excellent addition to VLM’s expanding scheduled network.”
London Luton Airport’s business development manager Simon Harley added, ‘We are delighted to welcome VLM to the growing number of airlines choosing London Luton. We work continuously to expand the airport’s route network to ensure passengers have a great choice of destinations and four new airlines and an additional 12 routes for 2015 is testament to that. We are confident in the demand for services to Waterford and looking forward to re-establishing the link between London Luton and the south east of Ireland.’
