Belgian airline VLM introduced BAe 146-300 G-BPNT (msn E3126) on lease from Flightline on its busy London City to Rotterdam route in April 2007. The lease was interrupted during the summer season, then resumed in mid-September. The lease seemed to have been going well, being extended by six months, but the announcement that VLM was being acquired by Air France led to a change in plans, and G-BPNT was returned off-lease to Flightline on February 29.
