KLM adds direct flights from Amsterdam to Vegas
Add another entry to the arrival/departure screen — the one marked KLM.
On June 6, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines commenced direct nonstop flights between Amsterdam and Las Vegas, making Vegas the airline’s 18th direct North Atlantic destination.
Onboard its Dreamliner (B787-9) with a 294-passenger capacity, KLM is now offering service between Amsterdam Airport Schipol (the main international airport of the Netherlands) and McCarran International Airport on Thursdays and Sundays. A third weekly flight will be added on Tuesdays beginning July 2.
“We are so pleased to welcome such an esteemed airline as KLM and these new nonstop flights from Amsterdam,” said Rosemary Vassiliadis, director of aviation for McCarran. “With its extensive global network and SkyTeam partners, KLM will make Las Vegas more accessible to the world.”
Founded in 1919, KLM is the oldest airline in the world still operating under its original name, and will celebrate its centennial on Oct. 7.
