Earlier this week I was privileged to travel journey  with Fly VLM from Luton to Waterford. It is easy to see why VLM is Belgium’s most successful airline, the journey was a most relaxed and comfortable experience. The Fokker 50  aircraft seats 50 passengers and is ideal for business and commuter travel.

It is also a very good choice for weekend city breaks to Waterford in Ireland’s sunny South East region – Waterford Airport is close to Waterford City Centre and also 30-40 minutes from Kilkenny and Wexford. Beaches, castles, heritage centres and golf courses are all waiting on the doorstep.

The service was impeccable – very friendly and attentive staff  who’ve perfected the art of treating each passenger as an individual. Complimentary in-flight service and free seat selection are part of the deal.

Fly VLM offers a combined total of 16 flights a week to Waterford from Luton and Birmingham at convenient times for family holidays, commuters and the business traveller. Excellent connectivity  at Luton and Birmingham for other UK and and European bodes well for the success the new routes.

As well as the scheduled services, the are also Charter services – ideal for Sports teams, corporates and tour operators.
