Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 3 April 2009

Economical air tickets and free train travel? KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and the Dutch Railways (NS) have created a win-win scenario based on a joint campaign. The campaign kicks off Sunday, 5 April 2009.

With all KLM tickets sold under the recent World at your Doorstep campaign, passengers receive a free NS 2nd class ticket home. These free train tickets are issued at the NS information desk at Schiphol Plaza. They can be collected either on the day of departure or the day of arrival. The special offer will be publicised from Sunday, 5 April 2009 onwards in a nationwide campaign using channels including television and radio commercials. The campaign will run until 30 June inclusive.

This campaign forms part of the expanding commercial venture between KLM and NS. The cooperation also includes the joint distribution of NS Business Cards to a 10,000-strong group of KLM business customers. The NS Business Card offers discounts and company account ticket purchases. An integrated air-rail ticket will soon be possible with effect from mid-April for international train journeys to Antwerp and Brussels. This offers customers the option of arranging their flight and connecting train journey as part of a single booking.

In anticipation of the swift connection between Schiphol and large cities like Brussels, NS is pleased to already be able to offer air-rail travel to KLM passengers. Soon, customers will be able to travel from Schiphol to Brussels within an hour and a half, said Jan-Willem Siebers, Commercial Director NS Hispeed.
