KLM Reducing Take-Off Fares to European Destinations


Amstelveen - KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is reducing airfares from the Netherlands to a large number of European destinations. Round-trip tickets to twenty European cities will now cost EUR 99.

Of course, the tickets offer all the service and quality that KLM customers have grown accustomed to. KLM always flies to airports close to cities. All prices listed for round-trip tickets comprise the total airfare. Customers will have the same choice of favourable departure times, such as six flights daily to Barcelona. And travellers can check a piece of luggage up to 23 kilos at no extra charge.

During the coming summer schedule KLM will operate 22 extra flights to European destinations – a 9.5% increase in flights amounting to 850,000 seats. The additional flights will travel to popular destinations such as Madrid, Barcelona, Geneva, Berlin and Munich, and to strategically important markets in Great Britain and Scandinavia.

KLM offers a wide selection of flights to numerous European cities from its home base at Schiphol Airport. This makes KLM an interesting choice both for business travellers and holiday-makers flying to cities in Europe.
