KLM flies from Dublin

KLM flies from Dublin


KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is to expand its new Dublin service to Amsterdam before it commences.   Since announcing the start of its operations out of Dublin in June, KLM will further strengthen their Dublin Amsterdam service by adding two additional frequencies. KLM is doubling capacity on the new Dublin service before it even begins operations on 30th October.   These two new daily return flights will be added to KLM’s new summer schedule from 26th March 2017.   The four daily return flights will connect Dublin Airport to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport where passengers can choose from over 150 onward connections on its worldwide network.

All flights will be operated using Embraer 190 carrying up to 100 passengers.   The schedule has been devised to complement KLM’s long-haul network, offering passengers easy connections to destinations such as Johannesburg, Havana, Beijing and Hong Kong.

Welcoming the announcement Vincent Harrison (Dublin Airport MD) said, “We are delighted to see KLM increase frequencies on its new Dublin Amsterdam service before the route has even started operations.   These additional flights will provide extra choice and convenience for both business and leisure passengers travelling to the Netherlands or connecting a KLM’s Schiphol hub."

Warner Rootliep (GM Air France / KLM UK & Ireland) said, “We are delighted to be able to announce a frequency increase on our Dublin service to Amsterdam and hope it will be warmly welcomed by the local community.   Demand for efficient, seamless and convenient schedules to long-haul destinations from Ireland continues to grow, particularly to emerging markets such as Latin America, Africa, and Asia, all markets where KLM has strong networks.   We know that the service we will provide out of Dublin will perfectly answer the needs of Ireland’s capital and demonstrates our commitment to the Irish marke.”
