KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is launching services to three new destinations with the start of the winter schedule on 28 October: St Maarten, Guanacaste Liberia (Costa Rica) and Bangalore (India).
KLM will continue to operate services to the new destinations of Boston, Las Vegas, Naples
KLM’s direct flights to Sint Maarten were suspended in 2017 due to hurricane Irma. Flights to Sint Maarten were then combined with the Amsterdam-Curaçao service. However, from 27 October 2019, KLM will once more operate a direct service from Schiphol to this Caribbean island.
From 29 October, KLM will operate flights four times a week from Amsterdam to Guanacaste Liberia in a Boeing 787-9. On the outbound journey, the service will include a stopover at San José, the capital of Costa Rica.
From 30 October, KLM will operate flights on Mondays, Wednesdays
KLM is able to offer three new destinations, despite the limited capacity at Schiphol, by optimizing its network.
“We constantly monitor whether the type of aircraft and frequencies for a certain route match market demand and the route’s results. This can mean that routes are sometimes suspended sooner than usual due to slot restrictions at Schiphol, as is the case with Colombo, Sri Lanka, this winter,” the airline said.
