Mariborchanka? You used to have some numbers?
Load factor it's still around 11%
That is extremely bad. Thank you for your information. VLM is completely unknown in Slovenia and I am sure that at least 90% of the people have no idea that they can fly from MBX at all.
That would mean 5-6 passengers per flight, no? Do you know how many of these are travelling between MBX and MUC and between MBX and ANR?
I had the impression there are more passengers than 5-6 per flight and more MBX-passengers from/to Antwerp than from/to Munich.

What is the MBX-airport doing to promote these flights and their airport besides the info on the MBX-website?
Are travelangents in Maribor-region/Slovenia in the picture? and do they 'promote' this routing or are they sending their airtravel clients for MUC and Belgium to LJU,ZAG or Austria?
I do not know how many passengers fly vetween MBX and ANR. However I know that MBX Airport does hardly something to promote those flights. Sometimes they post or repist VLM's posts on Facebook. And thats all. Sadly.

Since MBX airport and VLM Airlines belong to the same owners, it is the lack of marketing efforts by these owners that could explain those poor results.

It looks more like a re-election campaign of the Mayor of Antwerp for the upcoming municipal elections :)

Well , if that also leads to extra promotion for VLM it's OK, I would think. :)
In any case ,it looks like the 'old' ANR-LCY route is the one generating the operational profit for VLM and supporting the other current and coming routes.

VLM Airlines loaded their winterschedule in the booking tool.
'Except connecting flights'. Curious to see what they mean with this and what 'connecting flights' they will offer eventually.

A few things I noted thusfar:
- afternoon flight to/fm ZRH on sundays
- Sunday-flight to ANR fm MUC? ANR-MUC still to be loaded?
- reduced schedule (3 iso 7 flts - wed,Sat,Sun) between OST-MAN. This allows morning flts from MAN to Antwerp on mon,tue,thur,fri.
- No flights to/fm Maribor/Rostock and ABZ-BHX after 27 oct? (or still to be loaded as 'connecting flight' ?)

There are no flights between MUC and MBX in the winter schedule. Seems like that VLM gave up on the route... or do you think that they are not yet finished with scheduling for these flights?

By the way... keep in mind that SHS pays 95 000 € rent per month for MBX airport concession... God knows where that money comes from...
