KLM Reopens US Network to European Travelers
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has reopened its United States network to European travelers, following the lifting of restrictions by the US government on November 8. Passengers to the US must be vaccinated against Covid-19 and hold a negative PCR test.
According to the airline, passengers now have access to 64 weekly KLM flights to 11 destinations.
This means KLM has resumed service to all destinations it was serving directly in the winter before the Covid-19 pandemic broke out including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Las Vegas, New York, Washington, Minneapolis and Houston.
In addition, KLM offers passengers a broader network of US destinations through its partner Delta Air Lines.
In mid-June, Europe was reopened to US travelers.
“This is a turning point for us; an important step out of the crisis. Now that we can operate these flights with more full seats, in complete compliance with all coronavirus requirements, KLM can take the next step towards financial recovery,” KLM President & CEO Pieter Elbers said.
KLM’s winter schedule for its US network is as follows*:
Excellent hygiene, flexible booking
KLM pursues the highest standard of hygiene before, during and after every flight, earning Diamond Status from the APEX research agency. This makes KLM one of the world’s trendsetting airlines in terms of hygiene and health safety.
KLM also offers its customers maximum flexibility when booking, altering or cancelling a trip. In this regard, APEX has awarded KLM five stars, based on passengers’ evaluations of the airline’s product and services.
