KLM launches three new international routes from Amsterdam Schiphol

Latin American expansion: On 31 October, KLM was welcomed to both the capitals of Cuba and Argentina as the Dutch airline now serves Havana and Buenos Aires from Amsterdam.

As KLM launched flights to EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg, the airline’s retro DC3 landed at the airport to promote the new route.

  • KLM launched three international routes from its hub Amsterdam (AMS) in the last week. On 30 October, the Dutch flag carrier opened a new service to Basel (BSL) at the borderlands of Switzerland, France and Germany. The route is to be operated 14 times weekly with 80-seat F70 aircraft operated by KLM Cityhopper. It is the only one of the three new services facing competition with easyJet operating the same route 10 times weekly. The SkyTeam member on the following day also launched flights to Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires (EZE) with 318-seat 777-200ERs. The three weekly flights reinstate KLM’s services on the route, which the airline last operated in March 2001. Replacing KLM’s now all-cargo subsidiary Martinair, KLM’s third new route is to Havana (HAV), Cuba, which is served three times weekly with 285-seat MD11 aircraft.
