Re: Crashes and serious incidents/accidents in 2019

A Belgian pilot was involved in a Piper PA-46-350P crash in Labrador, Canada. The airplane (N757NY) crashed after take off en route for Greenland, presumably on one of a series of ferry flights. While the pilot survived and was taken to a local hospital, his passenger sadly did not. More at Aviation...

Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

The news today is that there is no buyer for VLM, no one willing to invest in an airline based at ANR to lay their hands on a Belgian AOC and - after more than three months - no one brave enough to fly to London City from Antwerp. https://www.tijd.be/ondernemen/luchtvaart/Definitief-einde-voor-VLM-i...

Re: 2019 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Those are actual, real plans? (I didn't say realistic, just the idea that someone wants to go and launch such an operation seems... ludicrous). Are we sure this is not just some sort of joke or PR stunt?

Re: TUI fly Belgium in 2018

Lublin from Antwerp is pretty interesting IMHO. Not only is this a completely new destination (and country?) for TUI as a whole, it's also clearly a destination driven by VFR-traffic (Visiting Friends and Relatives).

Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

Looking at the online Flybe timetable / fare calendar, it's now clear that the two extra flights per week will not continue past early January. The achedule goes back to four flights a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) as from January 7th.

Re: VLM (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

According to the Slovenian business registry the local company "VLM Airlines, letalski prevozi, d.d." is still active yes. BTW: Google Translate told me "letalski prevozi" means "lethal transport" in English but I'm sure it's not THAT bad :)

i's' a pity they do not fly on saturdays
because for these low cost tickets there is certainly a market on day 6
I would agree but of course if a Saturday flight would also leave at 6pm that wouldn't make it all that attractive.

Re: 2018 Antwerp Airport (ANR/EBAW) latest news

I should think their present offer (two flights weekly?) is way below what the diamond traders and bankers require - their absolute minimum must be a day return for business without overnight stay. It's four flights a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday), but you're right, that's not nearly ...

The very last flight had 7 people on board for the MUC-ANR route but was pretty much full when it left ZRH.

Re: VLM Airlines Regional (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

New destinations from Antwerp starting June 4th: Aberdeen (1-3-5--), Cologne (days 12-4-67) and Rostock (days 12-4-67). Aberdeen - Antwerp flights are direct on Mondays but make a stop in Birmingham on other days. Which also means VLM will start operating domestic flights in the UK again. Cologne an...

With the disappearance of the MUC-MBX-MUC run three days a week. the timing of the outbound MUC-ANR flight in the morning has now changed as well... sort of. The VLM website is showing VO134 leaving at 13:15 on Wednesday and Friday (when the Maribor flight is running) but VO132 leaving at 09:25 on o...

Re: VLM Airlines Regional (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

Looking to the VLM Airlines booking system on their website there are some modifications done. As of 15 April there are only two weekly flights (--3-5--) on route MBX-MUC bookable. However the other route, ANR-MBX is bookable as normal (12345--). This make no sense at all. Maybe they are implementi...

Re: VLM Airlines Regional (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

Numbers to and from UK airports are published by the Civil Aviation Authority and thus public. They're shown as total number of passengers per route (arrivals plus departures) but lucky for us, there's only one operator on the ANR-LCY route and only one aircraft type. So with that in mind: the lates...

Re: VLM Airlines Regional (SHS Antwerp Aviation) news 2018

I'm not sure where this idea comes from that VLM is much cheaper than Swiss to ZRH. I can fly LX next Wednesday return for 138 euro with a choice of flights including the first one out and last one in. And I can do so on most days. Or stay 1 night or more. Sure, it's hand luggage only at that price ...
