Thanks for the news : https://www.aviation24.be/defunct-airli ... ankruptcy/

I changed topic name, because there are a few news in 2019, and no need to create a new topic for a defunct airline.

Just wondering, after this bankruptcy,who owns the tradename VLM (or Vlaamse LuchtransportMaatschappij) .
Can we assume it is now available 'for free' for any investor(s) who would like to revive the airline once more? (you never know) Or is it to be 'purchased' from the liquidator? :? or someone else?

Yep - the bankruptcy curator ownes the trade marks after bankruptcy. Don't know however which one from the two VLM curators (remember Harm Prins was involved, so a surprise is possible):
