KLM will no longer serve Hyderabad in southern India with effect from February.

In an official statement the Dutch airline says it is “suspending the service in response to financial results of this route and local market developments.”

KLM launched the route in October 2005 and currently flies between Amsterdam and Hyderabad four times a week with MD-11s.  It offers a myriad of connections to and from its Amsterdam hub and destinations worldwide.

The carrier’s final flight from Amsterdam will be KL873 on January 31 which will return from Hyderabad as KL874 on February 1.

Alternative routes to Hyderabad from Europe include Lufthansa from Frankfurt and, starting on December 6, British Airways from London Heathrow.

KLM says that it and partners Air France and Northwest will continue to focus on India, operating direct flights from Amsterdam and Paris CDG to Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Madras.
