KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is adding another international destination to its network.
From 27 March, 2017, the Dutch airline will operate three roundtrips a week to Minneapolis on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The new KLM service comes in addition to the three daily flights between Amsterdam and Minneapolis currently operated by Delta Air Lines, Air France KLM’s transatlantic joint-venture partner.
Pieter Elbers, KLM President and CEO said:
“KLM is keeping up the pace of its network expansion. This new destination not only provides travelers to Minneapolis with more options, KLM’s codesharing agreement with Delta Air Lines also means that KLM can offer its customers connections to more than 60 North American destinations. This further emphasizes the strength of the North Atlantic joint venture between Air France, KLM, Alitalia, and Delta Air Lines”.
The new flights will depart Amsterdam at 09:35 hrs CET and arrive in Minneapolis at 11:20 hrs (local time). The return flight will depart at 14:50 hrs local time and arrive in Amsterdam the next day at 05:50 hrs CET.
The flights will be operated using an Airbus 330-200 with 18 World Business Class seats, 35 Economy Comfort seats and 214 seats in Economy Class.
