European regional carrier VLM Airlines has launched its direct service from Birmingham to Antwerp, Belgium.
The three-times weekly service will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The inaugural flight was greeted with a water arch salute while VIP passengers were greeted by The Belgium Ambassador to the UK, Guy Trouveroy.
William Pearson, aviation development director of Birmingham Airport, said: “This new route to Antwerp is great news for the Birmingham catchment area; providing a fast, practical connection to one of the most creative and cosmopolitan cities in Europe.
“We are delighted to welcome Guy Trouveroy to Birmingham Airport for the first time to help inaugurate this valuable new service.”
VLM Airlines also provides scheduled services to seven other destinations in five countries, including Geneva, Hamburg, Southampton, Waterford and London Luton.
