May 15, 2017: KLM has announced its plans to increase frequency on its Dublin to Amsterdam route. This additional frequency means that KLM will fly five times daily between the two cities on Monday, Wednesday and Friday initially between July 10 to September 1, and five times daily thereafter until October 28.
Vincent Harrison, managing director, Dublin Airport, said, “I am delighted to see KLM increasing frequency on two separate occasions on its Amsterdam route since it entered the Irish market last November.”
Warner Rootliep, general manager of Air France-KLM UK & Ireland said that demand for “convenient schedules and seamless connections to our long-haul network is important to our Irish customers, so we are pleased that we can add yet another frequency to this route only months after increasing flights from two to four a day in March.”
KLM first launched the route in November last year with two flights per day. This was increased to four flights per day in March.
The additional frequency will be serviced by an Avroliner AR8 aircraft with a convenient schedule, offering Irish passengers seamless connections via Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, to a network of over 150 worldwide destinations including Johannesburg, Havana and Hong Kong.
More than 8.3 million passengers have travelled through Dublin Airport in the first four months of this year, representing a 7 percent increase or an additional 528,000 passengers so far this year.
Last year, Dublin Airport had direct flights to 185 destinations in 41 countries operated by a total of 47 airlines.
