KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will add two new intercontinental destinations to its network this year, namely Miami and Colombo (Sri Lanka). In addition, daily service will be operated to Havana (Cuba) and KLM will continue operating extra flights to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) during the winter season. This week KLM has also launched service to two new intercontinental destinations: Astana (Kazakhstan) and Salt Lake City US).
Throughout the winter season, KLM will operate thrice-weekly service to Miami from Schiphol using an A330-200. The carrier will also operate twice-weekly service to Colombo from Schiphol starting from 31 October with its new B787 Dreamliner. This marks KLM’s return to Colombo after an absence of almost 20 years. KLM suspended service to the Sri Lankan capital (then served via Abu Dhabi) in 1997.
And owing to what it described as a “stable market position and strong demand,” KLM this summer increased flight frequency to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur from seven to ten weekly flights, in line with the summer schedule.
