From 27 April, VLM Airlines will begin operating a new route between Waterford and Birmingham using its fleet of Fokker 50 aircraft, complementing the airline's recently announced Waterford–London Luton route due to commence on the same date.
The Waterford–Birmingham service will offer passengers a daily return four times a week on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays.
“Adding the Waterford–Birmingham route to our expanding network is another example of VLM listening to what passengers want,” stated Arthur White, VLM’s CEO. “With these new scheduled flights, we are continuing to focus on business and leisure travellers, providing them with fast, practical connections between the cities.”
Paul Kehoe, CEO of Birmingham Airport, added, “This new four-times weekly service between Birmingham and Waterford is a welcome addition to our existing network of flights to Ireland. Due to the strong links between the two regions and the choice offered to passengers, allowing them to return the same day, we’re confident this new route will prove to be very popular with the business and leisure market.”
