MIAMI — Dutch carrier KLM will add Las Vegas (LAS) to its US network starting from next summer. The airline will deploy its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the route, starting from June 6, 2019.
Las Vegas will become the airline’s 18th North Atlantic destination, which will work in par with the current joint venture in place with Delta, Air France, Virgin Atlantic, and Alitalia.
This new addition to the joint venture comes after Delta announced a significant boost to its European network.
Air France also advertised the opening of an all-new route between Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW), starting on March 31, 2019. Dallas becomes the 13th destination in North America for the French carrier.
KLM will operate flights between Amsterdam and Las Vegas on Fridays and Sundays, with a third weekly flight to be launched on Tuesdays from July 2 onwards.
