Kent to Amsterdam

KLM has confirmed a new Manston – Amsterdam operation as previewed by Business Travel News (see BTN 8 October). 
Commencing 2 April 2013 the twice-daily flights will connect Manston to KLM’s hub offering convenient connections to a worldwide network of over 130 destinations from the South East of England.

Flown by a Fokker 70 jet the schedule has been optimised both for convenient same-day returns to Amsterdam as well as for quick and efficient transfers.  Departures are Manston 06:35 and 10:40, and Amsterdam 10:10 and 20:50.

The launch of the Manston service confirms KLM’s claims as the UK’s regional airline of choice.  The carrier now offers 17 departure airports – Aberdeen, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Durham Teesvalley, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heathrow, Humberside, Inverness, Leeds, London City, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich, Southampton and now Manston.

Henri Hourcade, General Manager for Air France/KLM in the UK, stated: "Demand for efficient and convenient schedules to long haul destinations from the UK continues to grow, to emerging markets in Latin America, Africa and the Far East, but equally to established markets such as North America.  By connecting the UK regions to worldwide destinations, KLM is offering more choice to holidaymakers, but equally adding to the infrastructure for regional UK businesses".  www.klm.com
