KLM has announced plans to launch extra flights from Norwich Airport to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, in time for the Easter holidays.
Part of the Air France-KLM group, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is the flag carrier airline of the Netherlands headquartered in Amstelveen, with its hub at nearby Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
Starting March 27, KLM will be operating up to four return flights a day between Norwich and Amsterdam for the first time as demand for air travel recovers following the pandemic. With a flight time of 55 minutes, the new service provides options for city-break in Amsterdam in less than an hour, as well as easy access to Schiphol Airport’s global network of international onward connections.
Richard Pace, Managing Director of Norwich Airport, said: ‘It’s great to see KLM’s Amsterdam route from Norwich getting back to full strength with four flights a day on weekdays and up to three a day at weekends.
‘It means passengers from Norwich have even more flexibility, whether that’s for a city break or onward travel from Schiphol to more than 270 destinations worldwide.’
To celebrate the additional flights, Norwich Airport has a competition to win a pair of return tickets to Amsterdam with KLM. The closing date is March 31.
Amsterdam is among the year-round destinations available from Norwich, which also include Tenerife with TUI and Aberdeen with Loganair. Norwich Airports full summer season gets underway in May with TUI offering a full schedule of eight sunshine destinations in Cyprus, Greece, Spain, and Turkey. Blue Islands is also returning with a twice-weekly service to Jersey, providing short breaks closer to home.
