KLM’s African network has reached 11 destinations for the first time since before the onset of Covid-19.

The carrier’s route network looks slightly different to 2019, with services to Luanda and Windhoek having been suspended due to a fall in customer demand before the Covid-19 pandemic, and the addition of flights to Zanzibar and Cairo last year.

A new route to the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa will also be added this winter – businessdailyafrica.com reports that KLM will operate a twice weekly B787-9 service from October 31, with a loop to Nairobi from Mombasa.

The full list of African destinations currently being served from Amsterdam Schiphol is as follows:

  • Accra, Cairo, Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Entebbe, Johannesburg, Kigali, Kilimanjaro, Lagos, Nairobi and Zanzibar

The carrier notes that “Strict travel restrictions are still in place for many countries in Africa, which means only necessary travel is permitted”, and advises customers to consult wijsopreis.nl and klm.traveldoc.aero before travelling.
