Network Expansion: KLM Flies to More International Destinations
KLM will further expand its route network in July. Compared to June, the number of flights will increase by more than 60%. KLM will operate 25 to 30% of the normal number of flights.
The range of destinations will be expanded, particularly in Southern Europe. These destinations include Alicante, Bilbao, Bologna, Ibiza, Istanbul, Nice, Porto, Catania and Split.
In total, the planned European KLM network comprises 73 destinations in the month of July, up from 30 destinations in May and an expected 45 destinations in June.
In June, KLM expanded its intercontinental network to include Aruba, Bonaire, Sint Maarten, Paramaribo and Quito.
In July, KLM plans to add 6 more destinations (Jakarta, Denpasar, Washington, San Francisco, Vancouver, Calgary) and frequency expansions to destinations already offered in June. In total, there will be 51 destinations.
Approximately half of these destinations are currently only flown for cargo. As soon as authorities relax travel restrictions, KLM will also open these destinations for ticket sales where possible.
With the network expansions in July, KLM will once again serve 78% of the initially planned number of destinations with more than 3,000 departing flights at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
