Dublin welcomes KLM return

Celebrations have been held at Dublin Airport to welcome the return of KLM after 50 years with the launch of a new direct service between the Irish capital and Amsterdam. Starting with twice-daily flights, the airline says it will strengthen the service further from next March by doubling capacity on the route.

KLM is operating the flights with an Embraer 190 carrying up to 100 passengers on a schedule designed to complement KLM’s long-haul network, with easy connections to destinations such as Johannesburg, Havana, Beijing and Hong Kong.

Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: “It’s 50 years since KLM last operated in Ireland and we are delighted to welcome the airline back to Dublin. 

“We are particularly pleased that KLM has already committed to increasing its frequency on the route next year, which is testament to the popularity of this destination and the strong connections that KLM offers from Schiphol.”

KLM Cityhopper managing director Boet Kreiken added: “The addition of Dublin to KLM’s route network is yet another endorsement of continuous investment to best serve the market.  Ireland is experiencing a blossoming economy and strong growth.”
