As flagged on our forum over the weekend, Belgian airline VLM has gone into liquidation, with all flights now suspended.

This is the second time the brand has been grounded – back in 2016 the carrier filed for bankruptcy, only to be resurrected in 2017 following restructuring and investment by Dutch and Chinese investors.

The airline had been gradually adding new UK routes including Aberdeen Antwerp earlier this year, but last month suspended all but a couple of scheduled services.

These were from Antwerp to London City and Zurich, but both routes have now been grounded, following the decision “at an extraordinary general assembly to dissolve the Belgian airline and to liquidate it”, according to a message on the carrier’s website.
