KLM to resume daily service to Atlanta

Travel News Asia 15 March 2004

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, in cooperation with Northwest Airlines, is to start daily roundtrip service between Amsterdam and Atlanta, Georgia, in the southern United States, at the start of the 2004/05 winter schedule on Sunday, October 31, 2004. KLM will deploy Boeing 767-300ER equipment on this route.

KLM suspended service on the Atlanta route shortly after the attacks on September 11, 2001, responding to a sharp decline in traffic. Now that the economy is recovering slightly and traffic is gaining momentum, the airline said that the route has once again become more viable.

In addition, Atlanta is the main hub of future SkyTeam partner Delta Air Lines. It is expected that traffic will increase sharply on the hub-to-hub connection between Amsterdam and Atlanta.
