KLM will operate five new services from Amsterdam to Southampton, Inverness, Dresden, Genoa and Valencia next summer.

From May 16, the regional airline will fly 12-times weekly to Southampton - twice-daily on weekdays and daily at the weekend

The outbound services will depart Amsterdam Schiphol at 0835 and 1640 and arrive in Southampton at 0845 and 1650. The return legs will leave Southampton at 0920 and 1725, arriving in Amsterdam at 1130 and 1935.

On weekends, only the afternoon service will operate.

From May 17, KLM will fly daily to Inverness. The outbound flight will depart Amsterdam at 0945 and arrive in Inverness at 1025, while the return leg will leave Inverness at 1100 and land in Amsterdam at 1340.

The new service to Genoa will launch on April 22, while Valencia will commence on April 23 and Dresden on May 16.

The Southampton, Inverness and Dresden services will be operated by Fokker 70 aircraft, while an Embraer 190 will be rostered to Geno and a B737-700 to Valencia.

Pieter Elbers, KLM president and CEO, said: "We aim to develop our European network so that we can offer more direct flights to and from Amsterdam and more and better connections via Schiphol.

"So I am proud to announce that we will add five more European destinations to our network, giving European travellers more options to explore the world. The new destinations are relevant to our hub and to our position in the local markets."

From December 1, KLM has charged economy passengers a fee if they wish to pre-reserve a seat when flying long or short-haul (see news, November 17).
