KLM is having to suspend four routes from the UK regions to Amsterdam this coming winter.

As you can guess it’s all down to lockdowns, quarantine arrangements and so on being applied here and elsewhere.

The four routes – which are suspended until the early part of 2021 — are those to Amsterdam from Cardiff, Inverness, Southampton and Teesside. Note that the suspensions from Cardiff and Southampton take effect from later this month.

It is important to note that it’s a fluid situation. Readers must check all schedules both at time of booking and nearer time of travel.

Further changes are possible both as regards UK-Amsterdam and for onward connections elsewhere.

However the good news is that major destinations like Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Manchester are all (at the time of writing) protected.

For those planning to take Eurostar to The Netherlands the situation is little better.

Eurostar is offering a sparse schedule to Rotterdam and Amsterdam with just a single daily direct service.

And that’s not all. From now until mid-December there will be no direct Eurostar between London and the Netherlands at weekends owing to engineering works.
