KLM INCREASES SERVICES FROM NORWICH
- Fourth daily frequency commences from start of Summer Schedule 2013 -
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will add a fourth daily flight from Norwich International Airport (NWI) to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) from Sunday 31 March, 2013. The new frequency will offer a more flexible and business friendly schedule and increase long-haul connectivity via KLM's Amsterdam Schiphol hub.
The new frequency will be bookable from 20 October, with travel from 1 April 2013 and will increase capacity on the route by 33%. Return flights from Norwich to Amsterdam begin from just £119 return including all taxes.
The increased frequency on the route cements Norwich International Airport's position as one of the building blocks of KLM’s extensive UK network. Load factors on the route have increased year on year with average load factors now running at 73.3%, one of the highest across KLM’s UK network. Forward bookings to Amsterdam are also up by 4% year on year.
Comments Henri Hourcade, AIR FRANCE KLM, General Manager UK & Ireland: "The addition of a fourth frequency from Norwich demonstrates our commitment to the region. The increase in frequencies will streamline the region’s worldwide connectivity via Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and provide passengers with a more flexible service. For businesses, the extra frequency will allow for swifter connections to our long-haul network and in addition, it will give far greater flexibility to travellers doing business in Amsterdam and Europe who need to return to Norwich on the same day.”
