KLM will operate its first B787-9 aircraft to Bahrain, Cairo and Xiamen later this year.

The Dutch carrier will roster the Dreamliner onto its Amsterdam-Abu Dhabi-Bahrain route on October 25.

From November 30, the aircraft will fly two of KLM's four weekly Amsterdam-Cairo services, and from December 2 it will fly two of its seven weekly Amsterdam-Quito-Guayaquil-Amsterdam services, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Lastly, on December 3, KLM will deploy the B787-9 on its twice-weekly Amsterdam-Xiamen route.

On all services, the stretched Dreamliner will replace B777-200ER aircraft, reports

Air France-KLM has 25 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners on order (see news, November 2012). The group has yet to take delivery of the aircraft.
