VLM Airlines is joining IATA, the global trade association for the airline industry, in a move that reinforces the Belgian operator’s plans to launch regional scheduled services in 2015.
Arthur White, CEO of VLM Airlines, says: “As we expand into scheduled services, building on our established ACMI and charter operations, IATA membership makes perfect sense. No other association offers as much global airline expertise as IATA. We fully support IATA’s commitment to reducing costs in the industry and raising technical standards, and we are eager to contribute to those objectives in every way we can. Furthermore, we will benefit greatly from participating in IATA activities and events, helping keep us informed of the latest industry developments.”
