KLM will become the first airline to offer direct flights between Europe and the southeastern Chinese city.
The Dutch carrier will launch three-times weekly services on March 27, departing Schiphol on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and Xiamen on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The route will be operated by B777-200ER aircraft, configured with 35 seats in business class and 283 in economy.
Located in southeast China, the coastal city of Xiamen (also know as Amoy) looks onto the Taiwan Strait, and has a population of around 2.5 million people. It’s the seventh destination for Skyteam member KLM in Greater China, with the carrier offering 43 weekly frequencies to the country with the launch of the new route.
Travellers will be able to connect to flights into and out of Xiamen with fellow Skyteam carrier China Southern Airlines.
