FRI, NOVEMBER 11 2016-KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will resume service to London City Airport after an absence of almost eight years. KLM will begin with daily service and, in the weeks thereafter, increase frequency to four daily flights on weekdays and one to two flights a day on weekends.
London City is KLM’s 17th destination in the United Kingdom served directly from Amsterdam. The launch of service to London City confirms the importance of the United Kingdom within the KLM network.
Boet Kreiken – Managing Director KLM Cityhopper said “Once again, KLM is strengthening its European network by flying independently to London City. From now on, passengers on this route can enjoy all the advantages of KLM services and digital products. And the flight schedule is extremely attractive for business travellers.”
The flights will be operated by KLM Cityhopper using Embraer 190 equipment, which can carry up to 100 passengers. In addition to this service, KLM also offers its passengers various flights to London City in cooperation with CityJet, also from Rotterdam.
