Amsterdam boost for Aberdeen

Flights to one of Aberdeen International Airport’s top destinations are increasing this summer with KLM bringing in an additional daily flight to Amsterdam, making the total five a day.

The new flights will operate 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 on the route by around 10%.

The additional flight will be operated by an Embraer 190, carrying 100 passengers and offering connections to 165 KLM destinations worldwide via the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport hub.

Aberdeen Airport managing director Steve Szalay said: “We warmly welcome KLM’s decision to expand its presence here at the airport and  make more than 20,000 additional seats available for passengers.

“It is a real shot in the arm for Aberdeen Airport as we enter an exciting period with our Terminal Transformation project on course for completion in the autumn.”

Air France-KLM UK & Ireland general manager Benedicte Duval added: “The extra frequency will allow more local people take advantage of KLM’s worldwide network through Schiphol and provide more choice and convenience for inbound travel to Europe’s energy capital, boosting local business.”
