VLM enters the jet age

26 Apr 2007 by business traveller

VLM is now operating smoother and faster jet flights on its popular London City (LCY) to Rotterdam route. It's a far cry from the Belgian carrier's F-50 turbo-props which have plied between the two cities for many years.

So far the Belgian airline has acquired a single 92-seater BAe146-300 -VLM plies the Rotterdam route from LCY ten times a day with the BAe146 operating four of these flights. Jet-operated flights are the 0740, 1030, 1655 and 1935 services from LCY. From Rotterdam you will find the BAe146 on flights departing at 0705, 1000, 1620 and 1915.Seating inside the BAe146 is configured five across (3-2) with 31 inches of legroom.

VLM operates over 100 flights a day in and out of LCY representing some 36 per cent of all movements. Rotterdam is VLM's second largest base. Besides the flights going to LCY, there are twice daily links to Manchester and Hamburg.
