Air Antwerp commences operations with London City service
Air Antwerp on 09 September began scheduled services between Antwerp (ANR) and London City Airport (LCY). The KLM and CityJet-owned start-up reconnects the two cities, and over 50,000 passengers a year travelling on the route prior to VLM’s collapse in August 2018, with three daily flights on weekdays and a Sunday evening service.
Peter Downes, Aviation Director at London City commented: “Air Antwerp’s new route enables quick and convenient travel between Belgium’s second city and central London…the Antwerp – London City route has been a valued service over the years, so it’s wonderful to see passengers return, aboard the recognisable Fokker 50 aircraft. Boosted by a codeshare agreement enabling passengers to book via KLM.com, we’ve already seen strong interest in bookings…whether it’s for a city break or to do business”.
