As of 11 July, the Hamburg – Antwerp route, so popular with business travellers, will return to Hamburg Airport’s route network after a brief interruption. The airline Chalair Aviation will be operating a direct flight five times a week, Monday to Friday, between the two important port cities. The route will be served with the comfortable 19-seat Beechcraft 1900.
Belgian carrier VLM Airlines had suspended flights on the Hamburg – Antwerp route with immediate effect on 22 June as a consequence of the company’s insolvency. Chalair Aviation is now taking over the route. “We are delighted that we could acquire a new airline for the Hamburg – Antwerp route so quickly. With Chalair Aviation, we have a reliable partner to continue operations to this popular business destination,” says Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport.
Initially, Chalair Aviation will be flying once a day from Hamburg to Antwerp and back. The airline has already announced, however, that the frequency will be increased to two flights daily from September 2016, after a brief summer break.
Chalair Aviation is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary this year. The airline, specialised in regional aviation, is a partner of the Air France/KLM frequent flyer programme.
