As a result of KLM's decision to discontinue service from Amsterdam to Antwerp, VLM has filed for slots to start operations on the route.
The airline also announced it intends to inaugurate service from Antwerp to Rotterdam and Zurich.

They could bring back the AMS-ATL service, that was very convenient for people connecting from DUS.
Talking about DUS, they can replace the Fokker 50 with anything, that can fly and transport more than 50 people !!

I agree about YYC. So far only FRA and LHR as intercontinental destinations from Calgary. It would be nice to use some points and visit my fav Canadian city.

what I love about those Fokker 50 flights is, that they are ONE class only and credit (flying paid eco) the business points!
