KLM launches scheduled service to Miami


KLM Royal Dutch Airlines announces a four-times-a-week return service to Miami International Airport from the start of the summer schedule on 27 March 2011. This relaunches KLM’s direct service to Miami that was suspended in September 2004.


KLM will operate this service using MD-11 equipment. This aircraft seats 285 passengers – 24 in World Business Class, 38 in Economy Comfort Class and 223 in Economy Class. All seats are equipped with a personal screen and interactive entertainment.

Bram Gräber, Director KLM Nederland: “This is good news for the Dutch market. Besides being popular with business travellers, Florida is a top destination for holiday travellers. Adding Miami to the KLM network makes this popular destination once again accessible, non-stop, from Amsterdam.”
