The airport in northern Jutland, the Danish mainland, is KLM’s third in Denmark after Copenhagen and Billund. The airline’s mainline fleet of 318-seat 777-200ERs the same day began operating thrice-weekly to Xiamen (XMN) on the southeast China coast. This is the only route between Europe and Xiamen and KLM’s fifth in Mainland China after Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Hangzhou.
