“Customers from all over Europe fly KLM to our hub in Amsterdam to connect with flights to our destinations around the world. We aim to develop our European network so that we can offer more direct flights to and from Amsterdam and more and better connections via Schiphol. So I am proud to announce that we will add five more European destinations to our network, giving European travellers more options to explore the world. The new destinations are relevant to our hub and to our position in the local markets”, says Pieter Elbers, President and CEO of KLM in a comment.
Unfortunately none of the new routes will include an overnight stop at the destination meaning none of the routes can be used for day trips to Amsterdam.
