My parents are soon to be flying to Jersey from Aberdeen (JER) and have heard that they are to be flying on VLM. Does anybody know if this will be on the Fokker 50 or the newly-aquired BAe 146-300?

Interesting. This must be a W-pattern out of MAN or somewhere similar as VLM don't have an Aberdeen base. This is rather a long way to go on a Fokker 50 - considering at least one Saab 2000 is available for charter in Aberdeen most Saturdays but this was never requested.

Or possibly RTM or Antwerp. VLM have quite a few Channel Island charters. Tend to do a scheduled flight to Jersey via Guernsey from RTM or Antwerp then do a UK charter (or 2). Dundee and HUY are two other UK airports with a VLM Jersey/Guernsey charter this summer
