Using registrations traditionally (but not excusively) reserved for SN? :roll:
Maybe they'll rebrand as Sabena :mrgreen:
Although I doubt that LH sold the brand.

It would be nice ! I still have the idea in my pocket !

I think the name is already chosen, that's why the OO-SB* series...

A name like Sierra Belgium Airways or Sierra Bird Airways would be nice !

VLM Airlines felt necessary to issue a press release today to deny it was in liquidation. Friday's press release of SHS Aviation announcing the bankruptcy of VLM Regional Antwerp sent confusion on the market.

https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/vlm- ... quidation/

When VLM was split into two parts, one of them (ideally the Brussels one) should have changed names immediately to avoid such a confusion. And even now, a name change is highly desirable in order not to be associated with a dommed brand name.
