Extra KLM weekday service takes to the skies

Leeds Bradford Airport has launched a fourth weekday service to Amsterdam, as KLM Royal Dutch Airlines increase their capacity to provide an additional 25,800 seats on the route over summer 2016.

The increase in KLM frequency is a direct result of strong passenger growth on the Leeds Bradford to Amsterdam route throughout last year.

Passengers using the popular service can depart from Leeds Bradford four times each weekday; connecting through Amsterdam Schiphol Airport hub to more than 130 worldwide destinations.

This growth means more choice and flexibility for people across the Yorkshire region wishing to connect onto destinations across Europe or to the Far East, China, South America and South Africa.

Travellers wishing to fly point to point between Leeds Bradford and Amsterdam, will also benefit from a more convenient flight schedule; allowing for a full day of business in the Netherlands. 

Tony Hallwood, aviation development director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “We’re really pleased to see this increase to the KLM schedule from Leeds Bradford. Our customers have been making regular use of Amsterdam route as it’s such an important key market for business travellers alongside offering fantastic connections to over a hundred worldwide destinations.

“We look forward to welcoming even more passengers through our doors to fly KLM from Leeds Bradford Airport.”

Warner Rootliep, general manager of Air France-KLM UK and Ireland, said: “We are delighted to introduce a frequency increase on our Leeds Bradford service to Amsterdam.

“We know how important connectivity is to our passengers and we are always looking at ways to provide them with the best services.”
