Panta Holdings B.V., owner of VLM Airlines, has reached an agreement on terms for the sale of VLM Airlines to Air France-KLM.

London City Airport is the hub for the majority of its flights and therefore VLM Airlines will actively cooperate with the regional carrier CityJet, a 100% subsidiary of Air France, which is already operating out of London City Airport.
