VLM launches new Maribor operations

NEWS FLASH


VLM Airlines inaugurated flights from Antwerp to Maribor via Munich this morning with its fifty-seat Fokker 50 aircraft. The airline will run five weekly flights, Monday through to Friday, between the three cities. The carrier, which holds an Air Operator's Certificate in both Belgium and Slovenia, plans to increase frequencies on the Antwerp - Munich  sector to ten weekly from late March, with a second daily flight to operate on weekdays. The Deputy Mayor of Maribor, Saša Pelko, said, “Maribor is Slovenia's second largest city and was in 2012 and 2013 respectively the European Capital of Culture and European Youth Capital. This year, Maribor is European Sports City and European Capital of the Social Economy. Maribor's favourable geographical location in the vicinity of four transport corridors has a positive impact on the economic development of the region”. Doris Urbančič Windisch, head of the Maribor-Pohorje Tourist Board, added, “Although Maribor is one of the tourist hotspots in Europe, the region is a real gem that has not yet been flooded by large groups of tourists. Our city is renowned for the oldest vine in the world. With its nearby ski resorts, Maribor is one of the most interesting sports destinations in Europe. Many national teams are organising training camps here”.
