VLM Airlines flights take off from Birmingham to Antwerp

VLM Airlines has commenced flights from Birmingham to Antwerp on their Fokker 50. The service to and from the Belgian city operates on weekdays with one-way fares starting from £52 with taxes included.

Karl Rickard, CEO of VLM Airlines stated: “VLM Airlines is very happy to connect Antwerp with Birmingham again. Antwerp is one of the largest seaports in Europe, the diamond capital of the world, the second largest petrochemical centre in the world. This thriving city is also known for its bold and diverse arts, fashion and culinary scene. A short ride takes you to other popular Belgian cities including Bruges, Ghent and Brussels as well as to Dutch cities such as Rotterdam and Eindhoven.”

Tom Screen, Acting Aviation Director of Birmingham Airport said: “It is fantastic that Birmingham is now reconnected with the Belgian city of Antwerp. This medieval city has something for everyone, steeped in history but also named as the country’s capital of cool. It is also known as the world’s leading diamond city. We are delighted that VLM are operating this service.”
