Dutch flag carrier KLM is preparing to restart more flights from UK regional airports as it restores service following the Coronavirus Pandemic.

We have been working hard with our airline partners to re-establish routes and this is an important milestone, restoring a very popular connection between two of Europe’s most important cities.”

Another capital city connection will resume on Monday 3rd August when Amsterdam reconnects with Cardiff Airport (CWL/EGFF) the capital city of Wales.

Bristol Airport (BRS/EGGD) will see its KLM connection resume on Saturday 4th July, the same day that Leeds Bradford (LBA/EGNM) restarts as well.

The connection from the east coast starts on Monday 3rd August when Norwich (NWI/EGSH) gets it service to Amsterdam back.

Benedicte Duval, General Manager for UK & Ireland said: “With borders starting to reopen and travel restrictions beginning to ease, safety is a prerequisite for KLM as we gradually resume travel.” adding “As we all adapt to this new environment, I can assure you that all KLM staff, both on the ground and on board, are committed to guaranteeing our passengers the highest levels of health & safety.
