KLM world deal weeks with a chance of winning free tickets
Tuesday 5, January 2010
Starting at 12:00 noon on 7 January, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will hold its World Deal Weeks. These special offers will run until 25 January.
During this period, customers can take advantage of discounts on airfares from the Netherlands to 80 different destinations. In the run-up to this special offer — on Tuesday the 5th, Wednesday the 6th and Thursday the 7th of January (until 12:00 noon) — customers will have the chance to win tickets at www.maakeenwerelddealmetklm.nl
Customers can reserve World Deal Week offers either through travel agents, www.klm.nl or KLM Reservations. Departures must be between 14 January and 16 June 2010. KLM is offering special deals to more than 80 destinations around the world. As an example, round-trip flights to Madrid now cost EUR 99 all-in, down from EUR 133. Flights to Johannesburg, which used to cost EUR 875, are now EUR 629.
“We have seen that customers flying from the Netherlands were enthusiastic about reserving our flights this winter. So, we want to give them an extra incentive to fly before June,” says Bram Gräber, director of KLM The Netherlands.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
