MIAMI – KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL) has announced it will resume its frequencies to the Chinese city of Hangzhou on August 27.

The flight is the airline’s second back to China since it halted its schedule in February. In July, KL flew again to Shangai after the Asian government relaxed travel restrictions.

Additionally, the company said that it was making efforts to add a second frequency to new cities in China as soon as possible.

Mandatory Safety Requirements


KLM has implemented enhanced measures against COVID-19, but passengers will also have to follow health safety mandates from authorities.

This means that passengers must complete an online health declaration in Chinese embassies. Furthermore, they will have to allow temperature checking.

In order to resume flights to China, the carrier also announced that will implement other measures to comply with the government requirements.

These include that Cabin Crew will inspect bathrooms more frequently and limit available catering to reduce contact with passengers.
