In summer 2016 KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will expand its medium-haul network with scheduled service to five new destinations: Southampton, Inverness, Dresden, Genoa and Valencia.
KLM passengers can now choose a total number of 76 European destinations that KLM operates directly from Amsterdam. In total KLM will add up to 700,000 seats (5% growth) to European destinations next summer.
Mr. Pieter Elbers, KLM President & CEO, said:
“Customers from all over Europe fly KLM to our hub in Amsterdam to connect with flights to our destinations around the world. We aim to develop our European network so that we can offer more direct flights to and from Amsterdam and more and better connections via Schiphol. So I am proud to announce that we will add five more European destinations to our network, giving European travellers more options to explore the world. The new destinations are relevant to our hub and to our position in the local markets”.
As of 1 February 2016 KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will cease operations to Köln in Germany. Passengers from the Köln and Bonn area can still be accommodated on KLM operated flights to/from Düsseldorf.
