Xiamen to Europe

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will begin operating scheduled service from Amsterdam to Xiamen (China) on 27 March three times per week with a two-class Boeing 777-200ER.  These will be the first ever flights between the city, 400 miles north of Hong Kong, and Europe.  With this new route the airline will have 43 weekly frequencies to China.

Xiamen is the second-largest city in the province of Fujian and has a population of 3m inhabitants.  Owing partly to its favourable geographical location, Xiamen is undergoing rapid economic growth, attracting large international corporations.  The city is also a tourist destination with interesting cultural and historical highlights.  Geographically speaking it is directly opposite Taiwan, 75 miles away across the Taiwan Straight. www.klm.com
