Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 10 December 2008

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is to launch scheduled services between Amsterdam and Calgary in Canada. Calgary represents the biggest market in Canada not yet served by KLM. The scheduled service, which will begin on 3 May 2009, will be operated using Airbus 330-200 equipment offering 30 seats in World Business Class and 221 seats in Economy Class.

Calgary is located in the Province of Alberta, Canada’s fourth largest economic region, an area which is undergoing significant growth. Calgary also lies at the heart of a strategic oil and energy market and international air traffic continues to increase in line with customer demand. Cargo traffic to and from Calgary will also experience a boost with this new destination. In addition to the business market, tourism is important to this destination. Tourists from around the globe visit the region to explore the scenic Canadian Rocky Mountains.

“Under the present economic situation, it’s even more important to choose destinations that meet a strong demand. By introducing Calgary to our network, we further enhance our product offer to our customers, who can now reach this important region in Canada on a direct flight from Amsterdam. This fits in with our ambition of offering our North American market the highest possible level of service,” said KLM President & CEO, Peter Hartman.

Flights between Europe and North America are operated together with Delta Air Lines’ subsidiary Northwest Airlines, KLM’s joint venture partner. The opening of the route to Calgary by KLM and Northwest Airlines is a new milestone at a time when Delta Air Lines, Air France and KLM intend to join forces in a leading unique joint venture across the Atlantic.

Calgary previously formed part of the KLM network from 1986  until 1996 and will now be the airlines’ 61st intercontinental destination.
