Summer: KLM Ready to Operate Direct Flights to 167 Destinations

Due to the return of demand following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in many countries, KLM has expanded capacity on European routes by 10% compared to last year, almost matching the 2019 pre-pandemic level.

With direct flights to 167 destinations, KLM is ready for summer. Between 27 March and 29 October, KLM will fly to 96 European and 71 intercontinental destinations, offering excellent choice for business and leisure travellers alike.

The Portuguese cities of Porto and Lisbon, with three and four flights a day respectively, are just some of the destinations seeing an increase in KLM flights.

Belgrade, Dubrovnik and Palma de Mallorca, which were added to the KLM route network last year, will once again be included in the summer schedule. KLM is also adding frequencies to British, German and Polish routes.

Services to Kyiv, St Petersburg and Moscow continue to be suspended. KLM is keeping a close eye on developments in the region.

Intercontinental: frequently to the Caribbean and more often to the USA

KLM has also increased capacity on its intercontinental route network by 17% compared to last year. This summer, KLM will operate daily flights to Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, increasing the frequency to Curaçao to twice daily during the summer holiday season.

Port of Spain, KLM's new tropical destination in the winter schedule, is included in the summer schedule too, offering customers thrice weekly flights between Amsterdam and the capital of Trinidad and Tobago.

The resumption of flights to Salt Lake City and the new addition of Austin to its route network, means that KLM will be operating direct services this summer to 12 destinations in the USA, the highest number ever.

Although Covid-19 travel restrictions vary in Asia from country to country, summer demand is increasing for such destinations as the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Bali.

India too has indicated that it will be easing travel restrictions. KLM will respond by increasing frequencies to Delhi and Mumbai. Asia continues to be a strong and important market for cargo, allowing us to continue to operate lower frequency services to all pre-pandemic destinations.

Passengers wanting to fly to Africa this summer can now choose between ten destinations. Capacity has been expanded on many routes, compared to last summer, to meet the growing demand.

Zanzibar, which was added to KLM route network last year, is once again included in the summer schedule. KLM is also operating services to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Accra, Lagos, Kigali, Entebbe, Nairobi, Kilimanjaro, and Dar es Salaam.
