UK Office Of Fair Trading Authorizes Acquisition Of VLM Airlines


The UK Office of Fair Trading (UK Competition Authority) announced today that it has decided to clear the acquisition of VLM Airlines, a former subsidiary of the Dutch company Panta Holdings B.V. by the Air France KLM group.

VLM Airlines is a regional carrier that caters mainly to business travelers. The airline currently operates a fleet made up of Fokker 50s, primarily to and from its hub at London City Airport.

The clearance by the OFT opens the ways for a close cooperation between VLM Airlines and regional carrier CityJet, a subsidiary of Air France, already operating out of London City Airport.
