VLM Airlines to expand operations in April

VLM Airlines (Antwerp) in April is launching new daily scheduled flights between Rotterdam (Netherlands) and Hamburg (Germany) and between Antwerp (Belgium) and Hamburg.

The move continues VLM Airlines’ evolution as a scheduled operator, building on the launch of an Antwerp-Geneva service last month.

Passengers will be able to choose from two return Rotterdam-Hamburg flights each weekday from Monday April 13. Twice-daily return weekday flights between Antwerp and Hamburg will begin flying on Monday April 20. Both services will utilize VLM Airlines’ fleet of Fokker 50 aircraft.
