KLM Starts The Summer Schedule With 57 Destinations

Network Significantly Reduced Due To Coronavirus

Due to the corona crisis, KLM will start the summer schedule with a significantly reduced network. From March 29 until and including May 3, KLM plans to fly to 25 intercontinental and 32 European destinations. During this period, KLM will fly according to an adjusted schedule, which amounts to about 10 percent of the normal number of flights.

The intercontinental network will be operated with Boeing 777s and 787s. The Boeing 747s will be taken out of the fleet early. The remaining aircraft will be parked at Schiphol. A plan for this is currently being drawn up together with the airport.

For all other routes, KLM would like to point out to passengers that many countries have introduced travel restrictions. Please note that this sometimes happens at short notice - for an overview of the rules see IATA Travel Center.

The European network has been set up in such a way that as many European flights as possible connect to the intercontinental network. The following destinations will be flown daily from Schiphol from 28 March to 3 May (subject to change):

Geneva, Vienna, Zurich, Brussels, Paris, Lyon, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart, Berlin, Rome (from April 4)**, Stockholm, Billund, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Oslo, Barcelona**, Lisbon, Madrid**, Aberdeen, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, London City, London Heathrow, Manchester, Newcastle.

For all other routes, KLM informs passengers that many countries have introduced travel restrictions. Please note that this sometimes happens at short notice - for an overview of the rules see IATA Travel Center.

For both intercontinental and European flights: up-to-date flight information can be found on KLM.com or in the KLM app.

KLM has great respect for all its employees who work very hard in these challenging times to repatriate as many people as possible. Working on board an aircraft in a small area with many passengers obviously raises questions about the inflight service in times of corona. KLM fully understands this and has therefore made several drastic changes to the way we work on board. All this to ensure that the crew can continue to do their work with a sense of security and thus help to bring passengers back home safely.

A safe flight operation has our highest priority. At the request of both crew and passengers, due to the coronavirus, the service on board has been adapted to reduce physical contact. In this way, we minimize contact moments between crew and passengers on both intercontinental and European flights. In addition, KLM provides personal protective equipment and the schedule has been adjusted so that crew do not stay abroad or stay abroad for as short a period of time as possible. If, for whatever reason, cabin crew do not feel comfortable enough to fly, KLM understands this and will look for an appropriate solution.

** These routes are currently subject to very strict travel restrictions and it will be considered at a later stage whether/when these flights can be operated.
