Popular route to get three daily flights from January
In response, it says, to strong demand, KLM will upgrade its route between Amsterdam and Aalborg from two to three daily flights from as soon as January 28. The airline established the direct route at the end of March last year and traffic from the North Jutland airport has evolved significantly. It increased to three daily flights during the summer 2012 schedules, which end on October 27, but is then back to two for the winter months. But the return of the third frequency will now take place two months earlier than expected. Timetables will be updated in the coming days.
Vincent Audesseau, country manager for Air France-KLM in Denmark: “Demand has been good and the route has shown good numbers in recent months, so we’ll get this frequency reinstated earlier than expected.”
KLM currently flies a Fokker F70 on the route for up to 80 passengers. It is still unclear what type of plane will be inserted as the third frequency, but there is speculation it could, as was the case this summer, be an Embraer 190 with room for 100 passengers.
