Well there is something i don't get. Vizion was using the Fokkers of VLM. That's about it. What does this have to do with a VLM restart?

Well, I guess it wasn´t meant to be called a true "restart" but rather sort of a "rebirth" (on a smaller scale, though) ...

Was Vizion using the Fokkers of VLM, or were they using the Fokkers VLM leased after the sale-and-lease-back? If the second is the case, leasing them from the real owner shouldn't be too hard...

We are in a the winning team taking over VLM.
Aviation Factory is not investing, but will add value to the deal and be rewarded for that. More news the coming days. Wish us luck :)

I'm known to be an outspoken critic around here, but praise is given when due.
Vizion Air seems to be a competent team of aviation professionals and true aviation enthusiasts. I wish that we would see some of that excitement at major domestic and foreign airlines.
As such, if Vizion Air plays a vital role in a new operation, I believe in successful continued operations in the short to long term.
I can only wish Carl and his team good luck.

Well, let's pray and see. I really hope it is ambitious and that it will be a positive boost for antwerp airport.

That guy spent some time in jail for extortion! Is that the kind of guy who will put VLM back on track? His previous airline experience was a failure, not once but twice: Air Exel and Holland Exel !
