VLM Airlines has received a licence to operate the two Airbus A320 aircraft that they took over from Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium (TCAB). One of the aircraft (OO-TCX) is already wearing a flyVLM logo above its original TCAB colours and has already operated charter flights.
The Federal Public Service Mobility and Transport has confirmed that it has granted VLM Airlines the authorisation to use the TCAB licence for Airbus A320. VLM took over that licence together with two Airbus A320 aircraft and 40 TCAB ground staff employees. Most of the other activities were transferred to Brussels Airlines.
