On November 1, officials from Miami International Airport, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and the Dutch government welcomed KLM back to MIA, when the airline began three weekly flights from Amsterdam. Through June 2017, KLM will operate flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays between MIA and its Schiphol Airport hub on Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which feature 30 seats in World Business Class and 213 seats in Economy Class.
The seasonal service is a return to MIA for KLM, which last served the global gateway in 2011. Amsterdam is the capital and most populous city of the Netherlands, as well as one of the top financial centers in Europe. KLM merged with Air France in 2004 to form the Air France-KLM Group, one of Europe’s leading airline partnerships. KLM will join Arkefly as the second airline to provide service from Miami to Schiphol.
“We welcome KLM and its award-winning service back to MIA,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González. “Their three weekly flights to Amsterdam will provide more options for travelers between our two busy markets, and further expand our growing network throughout Europe.”
