We asked VLM for confirmation. The answer was that the information is incorrect.

But then, where did LJU get the information from? There must at least have been contacts between LJU and VLM...

Ljubljana airport is run by the very serious Fraport, and they are not launching such information without a background.

I'm currently on flyvlm.com and I saw something...

They have add as departures airports, Maribor and Belgrade...

Belgrade there's no indication for the moment for any arrival destination...
BUT Maribor, you can already select Zürich,but there's no flight at least until March...

You can book Maribor - Zurich - Maribor but not ZRH-MBX-ZRH...

So all comes from the booking engine...

Fraport is the owner of Frankfurt Airport and Ljubljana Airport so logic Fraport logo ;)

We can discuss about logo's etc.... but a weekend has passed and the information about VLM Airlines operating flights between Brussels and Ljubljana is still on the official website!

As much as I know, the flights (BRU-LJU) are announced but not (yet) confirmed.

Have a nice day!

Saw on Večer :
According to the website of the Ljubljana website, VLM Airlines is planning to fly to Ljubljana from January 8 until March 23, Ljubljana. Flights would be twice a day, departing from Ljubljana at 10.10 and 20.40, from Monday to Friday, that is, a total of ten flights a week. Since VLM has both 50-seat Fokker 50 and 180-seat Airbus A 320, it does not yet know exactly which aircraft to fly, but in the mentioned period, the number of weekly flights from Ljubljana to Brussels (and nearby Charleroi) increased from 14 to 24.

Sašo Bizjak In VLM, they started flying from Brussels to Brussels for three weeks already?

Let's add that these flights have not been announced on the VLM Airlines website, but only their flights from Belgium's Antwerp to London City and Switzerland to Zurich, and they will only begin on January 22, for the announced VLM line Ljubljana- Brussels. Previously, a number of their lines from Maribor were announced around the VLM, but except for some of the August flights from Maribor to Split and to Dubrovnik, the realm of their multi-month lines have not yet come to the Styrian capital. In circles near the operator of the Ljubljana airport, we have also learned that VLM actually announced these flights to Brussels, but did not confirm them. The flight confirmation itself, if it arrives, should occur in the coming days, we have learned.
It could come these coming days !

Brussels Airport can't confirm.
They don't know or they hide the information ?

Just to be sure, Aviation24.be also contacted Fraport-Slovenija (i.e. Ljubljana Airport) to obtain confirmation of their data. Their reply:

We received a flight announcement from the VLM carrier a while ago, but we have not received any flights confirmations so far.

This tells a lot about the reliability of VLM Airlines...

Even if Brussels Airport would know for sure (which I doubt, considering VLM's reputation), it's very unlikely they would disclose that information themselves. Route announcements are usually kept for the airline to announce first.

Yesterday, the VLM Airlines Fokker F-50 registered OO-VLS was named after its founder Freddy Van Gaever who passed away earlier this week.
