Your own airliner. It is a boy’s dream for many. But it is a difficult thing. Permits to start. Then again the capital to buy planes. Soon. But the air traffic is growing. After all, we all travel more.
Governments do difficult about it. The famous roller cases terror in the big cities. That is the fault of low-cost airlines. Or is it not the fault of the people who travel? In the past we all wanted possession and now experiences. Now the world is more beautiful and smaller.
Recently, VLM Airlines went bankrupt in Antwerp. So there is an auction. Part of the auction is the 3 aircraft, the permit, and parts for the maintenance of the aircraft. As well as the rights to start and land in London city and Zurich. Routes that were profitable.
Before you say: VLM went bankrupt, that is for a reason. That’s right. Too fast, too many scheduled flights too fast and no focus on sales. The new plan of VLM was to do the profitable routes and the charters. There was a great demand for that. The advantage of charters? Fly a bill. Relatively low risk.
It is clear that this plan came to a head. Otherwise, they would not have gone bankrupt. But if someone has the dream to start an airliner, then this is the moment. Everything you need is there. Possibly find a strategic partner to outsource the charters commercial exploitation.
I regularly discuss these kinds of opportunities in my podcast. Just to open your eyes. Well, I’m curious, are you going to do this or not? Please let me know via my website? I would love to hear from you!
