On June 22, 2016 VLM Airlines declared it was filing for bankruptcy and ceased all operations. The closure came after the People’s Viennaline announced it was canceling its ACMI contract with VLM due to its non-performance.
The carrier originally commenced operations in May 1993 as the “Wings of Flanders”.
