KLM to launch new service between Liverpool and Amsterdam

KLM has announced that it will start a new service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.

Dutch airline KLM has announced that it will start a new service between Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

The new three-times-daily service will come into operation on the commencement of KLM’s 2009 summer schedule, with bookings being taken from November 4th.

KLM initially flew between Liverpool and Amsterdam for five years prior to the Second World War, with flights having been discontinued until now.

Commenting on the new service, Pieter Elbers, senior vice president at KLM, said he was delighted to be renewing his airline’s partnership with Liverpool after such a long absence.

"By adding Liverpool to our network today, KLM has further strengthened its position in the UK market, one of the most important markets in the extensive network of KLM," he said.

KLM now flies from 15 British airports, making it among the UK’s largest regional full-service intercontinental carriers.

Air France-KLM became the first major European airline to issue a profit warning last week, when it said that it would be "very difficult" to hit its target of 1 billion euros operating profit over the course of the financial year.
