Mombasa will be served twice a week with Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. This aircraft type will also be used to operate flights to Orlando in Florida (4 times a week) and to the Mexican beach resort of Cancun (3 times a week). The Airbus A330 will fly customers to Bridgetown (Barbados, 3 times a week) and Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago, 3 times a week). Phuket will be served with 4 flights a week, Boeing 777-300ER.
Mombasa will be combined with Nairobi on the return journey to Amsterdam. This also applies to Orlando and Miami. Phuket will be served both to and from Amsterdam via Kuala Lumpur. Bridgetown and Port of Spain will be combined and Cancun will be a non-stop connection.
“For KLM, this represents the next, significant step towards rebuilding its network for the benefit of our customers. As many as 99 destinations in Europe will be served during summer and, with this latest expansion, KLM’s intercontinental network will also be significantly strengthened for winter”, said KLM CEO Pieter Elbers.
