Double frequency on the Antwerp-Munich route

Monday 26 March 2018 — Today, a VLM Airlines Fokker 50 departed at 12.40 P.M. from Antwerp Airport to Birmingham, the second largest city in Great Britain, thus establishing a daily connection between Antwerp and the West Midlands capital. At VLM Airlines, a drink and snack are included in the ticket price and every passenger is entitled to 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 also offers 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).

Antwerp Airport announces satisfactory year results 2017

Antwerp, 5th January 2018 – During the year 2017 Antwerp Airport welcomed 273.167  passengers and registered 37.511  flight movements.

Results
In 2017 the airport welcomed 273.167 passengers, a slight decrease of 1% compared to 2016 when the airport registered 276.523 passengers. Several elements had an impact on the results. In 2016 20.000 additional passengers were unable to fly from Brussels Zaventem following the Terrorist Attacks and flew in March and April from Antwerp Airport.

When excluding these passengers from the total result, Antwerp Airport would achieve in 2017 an increase of 6% compared to 2016.  Uncertainties at CityJet and VLM also caused less passengers on flights to London City.

The number of flight movements decreased by 9% with a total of 37.511 movements in 2017 compared to 41.403 movements during 2016.

Future
At the end of 2017, TUI launched flights to Innsbruck. A very popular destination for those who enjoy a short ski break or simply the Austrian snow. VLM will launch on January 22nd, two daily flights Antwerp-Zürich. Later this year the airport welcomes Flybe with flights to London Southend and the newest TUI route to Florence.

Important powdair update

Powdair is facing the situation of needing to postpone the start of their flight schedule for this winter season, which is currently set to commence on 14th December 2017 from Antwerp to Sion.

Operational systems and strategies are already in place, but investment is the onlye way they will be able to make powdair operational this winter. Passengers who have already booked a flight with powdair, have been informed and can count on a full refund.

 

New route between Antwerp and Zürich | VLM Airlines

10 flights per week in each direction from 22nd January 2018
VLM Airlines is to introduce an Antwerp to Zurich air service from 22nd January 2018. The airline is offering two daily services with a Fokker 50 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays with one-way fares starting from EUR 99 / CHF 119 (all taxes included). Seats can already be booked via www.flyvlm.com.

 

The route between Zurich, one of the major financial centres in the world, and Antwerp is a missing link on Europe’s aviation map. Antwerp is Europe’s second largest seaport, the diamond capital of the world and also the second largest petrochemical centre in the world. Both Zurich and Antwerp are playing a key role in the European economy. VLM Airlines is therefore happy to fill this gap with a convenient morning and evening schedule that allows both business people and leisure travellers to get the most of their stay in either city.
