KLM Royal Dutch Airlines started a new Amsterdam-Las Vegas (LAS) route on 6 June utilising a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

The aircraft has a capacity of 294 seats per flight and will operate twice a week this month. Starting 1 July, a third weekly flight will be added.

The new KLM flights will expand on Air France-KLM’s transatlantic network and serve to strengthen the joint venture portfolio with Delta Air Lines.

“Las Vegas is KLM’s eighteenth North Atlantic destination. The addition of Las Vegas will offer our customers even more flight connections to and from the American West,” said Pieter Elbers, KLM president and chief executive officer.
