Belgian operator VLM Airlines will be launching daily scheduled flights between Rotterdam (Netherlands)-Hamburg (Germany), and Antwerp (Belgium)-Hamburg. The move continues VLM Airlines’ evolution as a scheduled operator, building on the launch of an Antwerp-Geneva service last month.
Attractive New Route For Business and Leisure Travellers
Passengers will be able to choose from two return Rotterdam-Hamburg flights each weekday from Monday, 13 April 2015. Twice-daily return weekday flights between Antwerp and Hamburg will begin on Monday, 20 April 2015. Both services will utilise VLM Airlines’ fleet of Fokker 50 aircraft.
Arthur White, CEO of VLM Airlines, says: “The launch of these scheduled routes is a response to demand from the business community. Antwerp, Rotterdam and Hamburg are all major business cities with international reputations, whose seaports each handle hundreds of millions of tonnes annually. These cities are also home to some of the world’s biggest companies and corporations including BASF, Bayer and Royal Dutch Shell.” All three airports are located close to the city centres, boast excellent public transport connections, and offer fast check-in and car parking near the terminal to business travellers.
