KLM will operate an additional daily flight starting May to Aberdeen International Airport from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, increasing the number of flights to Amsterdam to five a day.
This will be effective during the months of May, June, September and October.
As a result of the extra frequency, an additional 20,000 seats are on sale, increasing capacity by around 10 per cent on the route. The additional flight will be operated by an Embraer 190, carrying 100 passengers.
The extra frequency offers passengers an improved schedule between Aberdeen and Amsterdam Schiphol.
Aberdeen International Airport’s managing director Steve Szalay said: “We warmly welcome KLM’s decision to expand its presence here at the airport. With more than an additional 20,000 seats available for passengers to purchase, this is a real shot in the arm for us as we enter an exciting period, as our Terminal Transformation project is on course for completion in the autumn.
“Amsterdam is a key destination for us for both business and leisure purposes, and we look forward to welcoming our passengers on to the additional flight later this year.”
Air France-KLM UK & Ireland general manager, Benedicte Duval said: “We are delighted to announce a capacity increase of 20,000 seats for summer 2019, taking our KLM operation to five daily flights between Aberdeen and Amsterdam during a key travel period.
“The extra frequency will not only allow more local people take advantage of KLM’s worldwide network through Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, it will also provide more choice and convenience for inbound travel to Europe’s energy capital, boosting local business.”
