So basically, Antwerp is out of the picture.

Pitty, because the name VLM was always associated with Antwerp.

I think they should rename the brand.

Damn. Was it really that hard for them to find someone who is fluent in English to proofread their presentation? I don't think I've ever seen a supposedly professional presentation with so many spelling / syntax / grammatical mistakes in it. From 'aircrafts' (multiple times) to 'shoping mall', 'aplications' and 'recieve', and beautiful sentences like 'We have considered that in the next year, the opening of the Simulation center for pilot training' and 'Maribor is possible a hub for circular economy for Eastern Europe'.

I may be nitpicking here, but this doesn't exactly inspire confidence...

Not only ANR, but all of Belgium. Strange for an airline with a Belgian AOC (well, not yet, but...)

If you have a look at their presentation you can see their planned network including routes from ANR and OST. You can also read that they plan to have 2 AOCs: one in Belgium and one with 320 and 330 in Slovenia.

Contributes a lot to their credibility, doesn't it? :)

So basically... What are they smokin'? :) Coming from Croatia, very close to Maribor, Slovenia actually, quite aware of that small airport. Where are they going to park that fleet? On grass? :D During recent years we witnessed several attempts to revitalise the airport but lacking infrastructure and questioning number of passengers that would fly out from there, it mostly failed. Just to name Slovenian Spirit (an Austrian subsidiary). Even Ryanair gave up after less than a year...

from EX-YU Navigation
VLM Slovenia to launch eleven routes from Maribor

The new operators of Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport, the 60% Dutch and 40% Canadian-owned SHS Aviation, have announced the launch of a new Slovenian carrier which has plans to overtake Adria Airways as the country's main airline. Outlining the company's plans, the head of SHS Aviation announced yesterday that the new carrier will commence operations this summer and is in the process of acquiring six Airbus A320 and fifteen Airbus A330 aircraft, all of which will be registered in Slovenia. Their arrival is expected from June onwards. The company intends to commence eleven routes out of Maribor this year, including Belgrade, Berlin, Hamburg, London, Podgorica, Split and Zurich in Europe, as well as Xi'an, Chongqing and Nanchang in China. The Mayor of Maribor, Andrej Fištravec, said Slovenia's second largest city will become a global player and specialist for Asian travellers.

This is many times the size of start-up Air Belgium, which is headed by a serious businessman knowing aviation very well as former boss of TNT Airlines.

What are the credentials of the people at the helm of SHS Aviation? Harm Prins failed several times. I don't know about the Chinese.

But personally I don't see this airline ever taking off...

So it's bye bye VLM. What's the point of keeping the VLM name if they'll leave Belgium!? They better choose a new name. Air Slovenia maybe. Anyway, I don't care anymore. RIP VLM.

Let's -indeed- look at the bright side: with VLM out of the way, the path is wide open for the Asia operations of Air Belgium. Let's hope they'll succeed!

One last thing about VLM: this is what happens with Dutch "investors". They couldn't care less about Belgium. Such a pity we like to sell so many companies to these people. Take Delhaize for example. Since it has become Dutch, I avoid them like the plague.

To me this presentation is aimed at possible investors... who will lose their money quicker than an FR flights turn around time...

I agree. RIP VLM. Was looking forward to seen them back flying in Antwerp.

I consider VLM now as "over and out". Let's hope one day there will be a VLM 2.0 in EBAW.

Then i am still wondering why they want to have a belgian AOC if they can get it in Slovenia.
