KLM will increase its number of flights to Amsterdam from Aberdeen next summer following a rise in passenger demand on the route.
News from the Dutch carrier came shortly after Thomas Cook Airlines’ announcement that it will be operating extra flights to Dalaman from the Scottish airport.
Meanwhile, regional airline Flybe has confirmed its intention to launch additional flights to Amsterdam from Aberdeen, a route that’s especially popular among business passengers.
Jan Emery, Aberdeen Airport’s route development manager, said the airport works closely with its airlines to make sure that local demand is met.
"A huge proportion of the work we do with the airlines is medium/long-term because that’s the nature of aviation," she commented.
"It’s terrific to see additional options coming on-stream for our passengers and we will continue to do everything we can to ensure this trend continues."
Between October 6th and 10th, almost 43,000 people travelled on flights from Aberdeen as part of the annual autumn getaway.
