Belgian carrier VLM will relaunch flights between Antwerp and Birmingham next week, following the resurrection of services between Antwerp and London City in October.

The airline will serve the route between March 26 and October 27, and is currently offering promotional fares from €39 on way (for bookings made by Sunday March 25).

Flight VO163 will depart Antwerp at 1240, arriving into Birmingham at 1315, with the return leg VO164 leaving the UK at 1345 and landing back into the Belgian city at 1620. The route will be operated by Fokker 50 turboprop aircraft.

VLM previously operated flights between Antwerp and Birmingham, but these ceased when the airline was grounded following bankruptcy proceedings in 2016.

Following restructuring and investment by Dutch and Chinese investors, the carrier relaunched flights to London City on October 30 last year, and also currently operates flights from Antwerp to Zurich and Munich.
