KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will resume service to the Iranian capital of Tehran from 30 October 2016.
This will be the 14th new destination KLM has added to its network in 2016. Four weekly services will be operated between Schiphol and Tehran, supplementing the Paris-Tehran service operated by Air France since 16 April 2016.
Pieter Elbers, KLM President and CEO, said:
“KLM has further strengthened its network with a new destination – the 14th to be added this year. This confirms that our strategy is starting to bear fruit. On the one hand we are improving our efficiency and productivity, while on the other we are investing in growth”.
From 30 October 2016, flight KL0433 will depart from Amsterdam at 17.40 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, arriving in Tehran at 01.20 (local time). The return flight, KL0434, departs from Tehran at 03.20 (local time), arriving in Amsterdam at 06.45.
The flights will be operated with a Boeing 777-200. KLM will meet passenger needs by offering three different travel classes on board: 34 seats in World Business Class, 40 seats in Economy Comfort, and 242 seats in Economy Class.
In the past, the Dutch airline operated service to Tehran from July 1991 through April 2013. Including the new flights to Tehran, KLM now offer 37 flights to nine destinations in the Middle East.
