MIAMI — After a ten-year hiatus, KLM will return to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) next spring, offering three weekly round trips to Amsterdam.
KLM’s service is set to start on March 27, complementing the existing thrice-daily MSP-Amsterdam service, already provided by Delta Air Lines Inc., a code-share partner that will allow KLM passengers to connect to Delta flights and vice-versa.
“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.”
KLM will fly to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, departing MSP at 14:50 and arriving in Amsterdam at 05:50 the following day. Return flights will leave Amsterdam at 09:35 and arrive in Minneapolis at 11:20, all local times.
These flights will be operated by KLM’s Airbus 330-200 fleet, with 18 World Business Class seats, 35 Economy Comfort seats and 214 seats in Economy Class.
