new/extra KLM flights from Summer2007

Post by Piet Luijken »

Press release:


AMSTELVEEN, 13 september 2006 –KLM start in de zomerdienst 2007 nonstop-vluchten tussen Amsterdam en Lima in Peru. Vanaf zondag 25 maart 2007 vliegt KLM de nieuwe nonstop-retourdienst zes keer per week met een Boeing 777-200ER.

Op dit moment bedient KLM Lima dagelijks met een MD-11, met een tussenstop op Bonaire. De nieuwe nonstop-dienst wordt dagelijks uitgevoerd, met uitzondering van de maandag.

De vliegduur op de nieuwe diensten KL 743/744 tussen Amsterdam en Lima wordt in beide richtingen met ruim anderhalf uur ingekort. Bovendien wordt in de nieuwe situatie meer stoelcapaciteit per week op deze route aangeboden.

In het nieuwe vluchtschema zal de vlucht uit Lima vroeg in de middag op Schiphol aankomen. Daardoor kunnen passagiers straks kiezen uit een veel groter aanbod van aansluitende vluchten naar Aziatische en andere bestemmingen dan in het huidige vluchtschema kan worden geboden.

“Met deze nieuwe invulling voor de vluchten tussen Amsterdam en Lima komen wij tegemoet aan de wensen van onze klanten om zo veel mogelijk routes nonstop te vliegen”, aldus KLM’s plaatsvervangend president-directeur Peter Hartman. “Sinds de komst van de Boeing 777-200ER in de KLM-vloot kunnen we daaraan nog meer dan in het verleden tegemoet komen. Deze KLM-investering past ook in de netwerkstrategie van Air France KLM om de kansen te benutten voor versterking van onze gezamenlijke markpositie in Zuid-Amerika, nu de economische condities daarvoor gunstig zijn.”

More KLM longhaul news:

In North America Los Angeles will see three additional weekly flights, with the reintroduction of flight numbers KL603/604. These 3 additional services will be operated with the B772ER according to the strangest of schedules for those acquainted with the KLM longhaul operation:

KL603 AMS LAX 08.10 10.20 B772 Mo/We/Fri
KL604 LAX AMS 12.20 08.00 B772 Mo/We/Fri

This new flight will give KLM one of the earliest West Coast arrivals from Europe. The traditional daily roundtrip KL601/602 will remain unchanged and operated with the B74E.

Furthermore, in North America, San Francisco will see its daily flight upgraded from the current MD11 to a B747 full pax version. The current timings of this flight will be kept. Newark can rejoice itselft about the reappearance of a triholer as KLM's daily KL657/658 AMS EWR roundtrip will change from an A332 to an MD11 next summer. Also, the seasonal KL659/660 AMS EWR with late night departure from EWR is planned to return a couple of times a week with B772ER.

In other news, both Atlanta and Washington will now receive daily A332 flights.

In Canada, Montreal will retain the MD11, whereas Vancouver will revert to daily MD11 operations after the A332 has been scheduled five times weekly for the upcoming winter. Toronto will revert to a B744 full pax from B772 next winter.

Changes in KLM's Caribbean network have been reported here on extensively, and are basically based on a complete withdrawal of the B744 of all routes. Curacao, Aruba, St Maarten and Bonaire will be uniquely served with the reconfigured MD11s, with CUR receiving a daily dedicated flight.

In South America, KLM is introducing 6 weekly nonstop flights to Lima (KL743/744)

The schedule of the new nonstop LIM flights is as follows:

KL743 AMS LIM 10.25 16.30 B772 daily except Monday
KL744 LIM AMS 18.30 14.00 B772 daily except Monday

Also, KLM's Ecuador operations KL753/754 AMS BON GYE UIO will be reinforced to 6 weekly, up from the current 5. KLM is aiming to operate daily flights to both Peru and Ecuador by the winter of 2007-2008.

In Africa, Nairobi will see an upgrade of the daily KL565/566 from the current B772ER to 5 weekly B744 full pax and 2 weekly B74E combi flights. Kilimanjaro and Dar Es Salaam will retain the daily MD11 and will not be upgraded to B772 for the busy summer.

In Asia, finally, KLM will now send the B772ER daily to Singapore instead of the current B74E combi, in an attempt to better compete with SQ's product on the route. Delhi will receive a combination of the MD11 and B772 next summer, whilst in China, KLM will add one additional frequency to Chengdu and two additional flights to Shanghai in comparison with this summer's offerings. CTU will as such be served thrice weekly with B772, while PVG will see 9 weekly KLM B74E combi flights.

Northwest Airlines plans transAtlantic flights from Bradley

Post by JS50557 »

HARTFORD -- Northwest Airlines plans to launch nonstop daily flights between Bradley International Airport and Amsterdam, the first trans-Atlantic flights in the airport's history, officials announced Wednesday.

The once-daily departures and arrivals from Amsterdam's Schiphol airport are expected to start July 1 of next year, officials said. Fares have not yet been determined, but listed a nonstop flight from Bradley to Amsterdam on July 1 at $1,113, on par with flights that connect through major airports in Detroit and New York.

Bradley' international service currently consists only of scheduled flights to Toronto and Montreal, and chartered flights to the Caribbean and Mexico.

"It's wonderful that we can now, with a straight face, say we are called Bradley International Airport," said L. Scott Frantz, the airport board's chairman.

Bradley handles about 390 takeoffs and landings each day, and is New England's second busiest airport behind Logan International in Boston.

The new service, unveiled Wednesday in Hartford, is part of what the company called the largest expansion of international service in Northwest's history.

Also Wednesday, Northwest announced plans to add more flights connecting Amsterdam with Boston, Los Angeles, Toronto and John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. Starting next spring, new flights will connect Detroit with Brussels, Belgium, and Dusseldorf, Germany.

Philip C. Haan, a vice president of Northwest, said Wednesday at the service between Hartford and Amsterdam will start with 160-seat Boeing 757 jets, and that the flights usually take between seven and eight hours.

Although the fare structure has not been announced, Haan said prices will be competitive with those for flights from Boston and New York.

"We have no intention of charging a premium here against those other cities," he said.

Connecticut officials said they believe the new service will be a boon to tourists, business travelers and corporations. Some also spoke of the morale boost it offers to the region, which struggles to avoid being overshadowed by its larger neighbors.

"This really does put this city and this region on the map in a way that's incalculable," said R. Nelson "Oz" Griebel, head of the MetroHartford Alliance.

Northwest is receiving about $550,000 in incentives from the airport's $1 million Air Service Development Fund, set up last year to help market Bradley and draw in new service, Frantz said.

About $350,000 will be used to market the new service, with the other $200,000 allocated for one-year abatements for some landing fees and rental costs, he said.
Airport officials said they believe the investment will pay off.

"This is really reaching the next level of service that Bradley has longed for," said Stephen E. Korta II, aviation administrator for the state Department of Transportation.

The Amsterdam-bound flight is expected to leave and arrive once a day, seven days a week.

"This is terrific news for Connecticut business and leisure travelers," Gov. M. Jodi Rell said in a statement. "It is also welcome news for the regional economy because it means that customers who have had to go to Boston or New York to get to Europe can now travel in and out of Bradley."

Departures will leave from existing Northwest gates, while arriving flights will go to the International Arrivals building that houses customs, immigration and related services.

Currently, people traveling from Bradley to Europe must connect with a flight at another North American airport. Amsterdam-bound Northwest flights from Bradley connect in Detroit.

Northwest and its global partner, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, connect from Amsterdam's Schiphol airport to 81 other cities in Europe, Asia and Africa.

Earlier this year, Delta Air Lines started offering four daily flights from Bradley to New York City, where travelers can connect with flights to 67 destinations around the globe.
