VG Airlines, later Delsey Airlines, (airline code IV, currently assigned to Windjet) was an airline with its head office in Merksem, Antwerp, Belgium.[1]

History

VG Airlines was founded in 2002 to operate flights from Belgium to North America in the wake of Sabena's bankruptcy.[2] The airline was rebranded as Delsey Airlines,[3] (named after Delsey Suitcases) but it ceased operations in November 2002. The pencil dark and light grey aircraft livery design with the feathered Belgian flag on the tailfin of VG Airlines was created by Lila Design in the Netherlands as well as the Delsey Airlines aircraft paint concept.

Destinations

The airline operated flights from Brussels to Boston, Los Angeles, and New York JFK in the United States, and to Yerevan, Armenia.
