The flights do not appear, neither on the VIM-AVIA website, nor on the Liege Airport website. Also not on the FR24 LGG page...

Same as for the Shanghai flights of Hainan? Announced, but never implemented?

Hallo

1.Traffic rights are the reason for stop at Moscow(Russian airline!)
2.Webpage LGG is not accurate anymore, ONLY JAF flights are shown..You have to look at teletext pages on RTBF Television pages 593/594..All NN(VIM°)flights are shown

A VIM Airlines 777-200ER (VP-BVX) is indeed on his way from Xi'an to a destination, apparently somewhere in Russia. Destination isn't identified yet by FR24 at this very moment:

(the flight number differs from the one RTBf reports).

The first article mentions 8 weekly flights, I checked the RTBF teletext page and only found 3. Will they gradually go up to 8 weekly ?

According to ch-aviation.com, VIM suspends charter ops.
I don't get access to this article, if someone has and can make a resume.
Is this new concerning U-Tours charters as well?
Something to do with the looming financial issues aviation24.be isn't allowed to talk about ?

VIM Airlines (Russia) cancelled all its charter flights until 15 June 2017 over the late arrival of three planes from scheduled maintenance. Not sure the Liège-China flights are affected.

Hi

No flights cancelled in LGG
These flights are not considered as "charter" flights, but as "regular" flights(till now!)
