KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will begin operating three roundtrip flights a week to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays commencing March 27, 2017. The new KLM service comes in addition to three daily flights between Amsterdam and Minneapolis currently operated by Delta Air Lines, Air France KLM’s transatlantic joint-venture partner.
“KLM is keeping up the pace of its network expansion,” said Pieter Elbers, KLM President & CEO. “This new destination not only provides travelers to Minneapolis with more options, KLM’s codesharing agreement with Delta Air Lines also means that KLM can offer its customers connections to more than 60 North American destinations. This further emphasizes the strength of the North Atlantic joint venture between Air France, KLM, Alitalia, and Delta Air Lines.”
