From 5 October, VLM Airlines is launching thrice-weekly flights between Birmingham and Antwerp on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
“Adding the Birmingham–Antwerp route to our network is another example of VLM listening to what business and leisure travellers want. There are strong business synergies between these cities for industries including fashion, diamond, automotive and chemicals,” averred Steve Blair, VLM’s COO. “We are confident this new route will also be attractive to people looking for a city break and can be used as a gateway to Bruges, Ghent and Brussels, all accessible in under an hour from Antwerp.”
William Pearson, aviation development director of Birmingham Airport, added, “This new scheduled service linking Birmingham Airport to Antwerp is a welcome addition to the existing VLM route linking us to Waterford in southeast Ireland.”
VLM now offers scheduled services to seven destinations in five countries, including Geneva, Hamburg, Southampton, Waterford and London Luton.
