Among those at the re-launch were: Arno Visser, Marketing Manager, VLM Airlines (second left); Andrew Daines, Director UK and Ireland, Visit Flanders (second right); and Tom Screen, Acting Aviation Director, Birmingham Airport (right).
- VLM Airlines commenced flights to Birmingham (BHX) on 26 March, beginning weekday services from Antwerp (ANR). This marks a return to Birmingham for the recently-reborn airline which previously flew to the UK city from Antwerp in 2016. The 446-kilometre link will face no direct competition and will be flown on the carrier’s fleet of Fokker 50s. Birmingham is the airline’s second UK destination, with it already serving London City from Antwerp.
