A new service between London City Airport and Amsterdam operated by KLM took off last week with the first flight receiving a festive welcome at London City with the aircraft flying Dutch and UK colours as it taxied to the arrival gate.
Passengers included KLM Cityhopper managing director Boet Krieken and Air France-KLM general manager Great Britain and Ireland Warner Rootliep. “We’re delighted to be back in the heart of London city,” Rootliep said.
“The new KLM service will offer our passengers a seamless and efficient service from central London not only to Amsterdam but also to exciting worldwide destinations such as New York, Dubai and Hong Kong.”
London City Airport CEO Declan Collier met the delegation, officially welcoming the carrier back to London City after a gap of almost eight years.
KLM is initially operating a once-daily service and says it will increase frequencies further in the next few weeks to four frequencies per day in time for the start of the summer schedule at the end of next month.
All flights are being operated by KLM Cityhopper, using Embraer 190 aircraft carrying up to 100 passengers. Codeshare partner Flybe will reduce its flights to four per day.
