KLM to return to Miami

Dutch carrier KLM will launch a four-times weekly service to Miami next year, a route it last operated in 2004.

The flights will launch on March 27, 2011, the start of the summer schedules, and will be plied with MD-11 aircraft, configured for 24 business class seats, 38 Economy Comfort seats (the carrier’s quasi-premium economy product), and 223 economy seats.

KLM suspended its service between Amsterdam and Miami in September 2004, but will now operate it as part of the joint venture agreement between Air France, KLM, Delta Airlines and Alitalia.

  • KLM has “taken over” the Miami route from sister company Martinair, who stopped operating passenger flights and focusses on cargo only.

    The MD11 will be around till 2013, as KLM is looking into replacing them with 787-9 and A350-900 which will only be delivered then.

  • Great news !!! AMS-MIA non-stop is a great route… & a golden mine!
    Big plus: The schedule is perfect, departing from AMS at 3 pm. Super!
    Congratulations KLM !

  • Kglaviamsn, Are you sure MartinAir has become a cargo only airline? They still show passenger routes on their web site. MartinAir presently flies weekly from Amsterdam to Orlando (I know because I just called the toll-free number in Florida) but I believe they did fly from AMS to Miami and on to San Jose, Costa Rica. The web site does not show a route to Costa Rica but flights to Varadero, Punta Cana and Curacao. As for the MD11’s, KLM still flies it from AMS to San Francisco. And MartinAir used to fly it from AMS to Oakland.
