Hello

Hmmm I remember my time in Denim Air where we flew for Air Sud (Italian virtual airline / tour operator) for flights between Reggio Calabria and Milan BGY) and some months later an Italian tour operator from Salerno named Aeroservizi.... We got paid for 1 week afterwards they never could pay the agreed amount...

I hope they found a better Italian ;)

Goldfish in Slovenian. See Google Images.
"Ribica" is diminutive of word "Fish". It is a small fish.

VLM Airlines vliegt tijdens de zomermaanden naar vakantiebestemmingen aan de Adriatische Zee

Seizoenvluchten naar Italië, Griekenland, Kroatië, Slovenië en Montenegro met Belgische middelen maar met Sloveense AOC


Terwijl SHS Antwerp Aviation (de opvolger van VLM Airlines N.V.) nog steeds op zijn Belgische vliegvergunning (AOC) wacht, vliegt VLM Airlines d.d. in juli en augustus op 15 routes in het Middellandse Zeegebied. Er worden twee in België geregistreerde Fokker 50’s ingezet, die elk plaats bieden aan 50 passagiers. De bemanning is Belgisch. De vluchten kunnen ironisch genoeg worden uitgevoerd dankzij de Sloveense AOC van VLM Airlines d.d., het Sloveense dochterbedrijf van SHS Antwerp Aviation.

Deze zomer vliegt VLM Airlines op 15 routes en verbindt daarmee 11 bestemmingen in 5 landen. Naast de vluchten die in opdracht van een Italiaanse touroperator worden uitgevoerd vanuit de Italiaans luchthavens Ancona, Bari en Salerno naar Kroatië (Brač, Split en Zadar), Griekenland (Corfu, Preveza en Zakynthos) en Montenegro (Podgorica en Tivat), gaat VLM Airlines in augustus ook lijnvluchten aanbieden vanuit zijn basis in het Sloveense Maribor naar Split en Tivat. Daarnaast voert VLM Airlines sedert juni, ook vanuit Antwerpen, regelmatig ad hoc-, charter- en privévluchten uit.

De vloot van VLM Airlines telt in totaal 6 Fokker 50’s en is geregistreerd in België. Drie toestellen staan op de Sloveense AOC. Twee daarvan worden nu ingezet in het gebied rond de Adriatische Zee.
De Belgische vennootschap SHS Antwerp Aviation N.V. en het Sloveense luchtvaartmaatschappij VLM Airlines d.d. ontwikkelen luchtvaartactiviteiten onder de gemeenschappelijke merknaam ‘VLM Airlines’. Daartoe werden twee vliegvergunningen (air operator’s license, AOC) aangevraagd: één in België en één in Slovenië.

Geduldig afwachten

“Het Sloveense VLM Airlines d.d., dat voor 100% in handen is van SHS Antwerp Aviation, diende in januari 2017 een AOC-aanvraag in bij het Sloveense Ministerie van Infrastructuur. Die AOC werd afgeleverd op 10 mei 2017. De aanvraag voor een Belgische AOC werd door SHS Antwerp Aviation in september van vorig jaar al ingediend in bij de Federale Overheidsdienst Mobiliteit. Tot op heden is de procedure nog steeds lopende. Toch blijven wij niet bij de pakken zitten en maken intussen gebruik van de vliegrechten die de Sloveense AOC van VLM Airlines d.d. ons biedt. Onze vestiging op de luchthaven van Antwerpen verleent volop administratieve, commerciële en technische ondersteuning aan onze vluchtoperaties in Zuid-Europa”, aldus Harm Prins, CEO van SHS Aviation.

Hij voegt eraan toe: “Op dit ogenblik zijn bij VLM Airlines ruim 55 mensen aan de slag, waarvan 45 in België. Dat hadden er gemakkelijk al een paar honderd meer kunnen zijn, indien we ook over de Belgische AOC zouden beschikken.”

SHS Antwerp Aviation en VLM Airlines d.d. zullen later dit jaar onder gemeenschappelijke merknaam ‘VLM Airlines’, nog meer lijnvluchten aanbieden. Details in verband met de geplande routes en uurroosters worden later bekendgemaakt.

Belgian Federal Minister of Mobility François Bellot visited Antwerp and Ostend airports in early July. He met with the CEO of both airports Marcel Buelens. The latter asked the question when VLM would receive its Belgian AOC. Minister Bellot answered that everything was proceeding smoothly and the AOC could be expected by mid-August.

www.flyvlm.com

On the bottom of their website:

Kontack

VLM Airlines NV
Internation Airport Antwerp
Luchthavenlei z/n B 69
2100 DEURNE - Belgium


Quite strange they don't list SHS Antwerp Aviation NV... VLM Airlines NV is a company in liquidation so it shouldn't be on their website since VLM Airlines NV is bankrupt and undergoing liquidation and thus not operating. While VLM Airlines, the brand, may still exist, the company using it will be SHS (And VLM Airlines Slovenia) not VLM Airlines NV.

If their application for a Belgian AOC is as good in details as their website then it's no surprise that they still don't have it :mrgreen:

... and a longer report (with many pictures) in Slovenian:

In brief: one weekly scheduled flight from Maribor to both Split and Dubrovnik, until the end of August, and possibly September.

A slow start against high ambitions...

VLM Airlines (Slovenia) plans to add one jet engine aircraft ahead of winter 2017/18 season, with F70s, A320s and A330s to follow, joining the existing fleet of three F50s.
