The Belgium city of Antwerp is now more accessible due to the launch of two new services from the UK, so there is now no better time to go to the land of Flanders. 

Flybe is launching flights to Antwerp from London Southend Airport as of 25 March. The new Antwerp service, on a 70-seater ATR72-600 series aircraft, will be operated by Stobart Air through its franchise partnership with Flybe. It will fly three times per week – Sunday, Monday and Wednesday with prices starting from £39.99 one way.

Meanwhile, VLM will launch flights to Antwerp from Birmingham on 12 February. The new daily weekday service will use Fokker 50 aircrafts. Prices start from €59 one way.
