VLM Airlines to fly between Antwerp and Birmingham from 26 March and to double flights on the Antwerp-Munich route

Summer Season 2018

Tuesday 20 March 2018 — On March 26th 2018 VLM Airlines will add Birmingham to its network. From Monday to Friday, the airline will fly daily between Antwerp and the second largest city in Great Britain. Tickets for this new route are now available from 39 EUR/GBP* via www.flyvlm.com. In addition to the new Antwerp-Birmingham service, frequency on the Antwerp-Munich route will be doubled, from 26th March onwards with twice daily weekday service to the Bavarian capital.

“From 26 March we will operate an additional evening rotation between Antwerp and Munich. This route upgrade perfectly meets the needs of travellers flying to Munich for business and wanting to return to Antwerp the same day”, said Konstantijn Huys, Commercial Director of VLM Airlines. “Moreover, our morning flights to Munich and Maribor will depart three hours earlier. This will allow our passengers to have more time on site to do their business or to enjoy their city trip.”

During the summer season VLM Airlines will also offer scheduled flights from Antwerp to London City Airport (3 to 4 return flights daily on weekdays), Zurich (twice a day on weekdays) and Maribor. The airline also operates a daily frequency on the Munich-Maribor route (weekdays only).

At VLM Airlines, a drink and snack are included in the ticket price and every passenger can also check in a baggage of up to 23 kg free of charge. At Antwerp Airport, passengers can check in up to 20 minutes before the scheduled departure time of their flight.

VLM Airlines employs more than 100 aviation professionals. The fleet consists of 6 Fokker 50 turboprop aircraft.
