KLM new summer schedule starts March 26th and ends October 28th, 2006.

Europe

The frequency to LHR will increase from 9 to 10 flight per day. DUS, GVA, CPH, MXP, MUC, OSL and ARN will increase to 6 times a day. FRA, GLA and GOT will increase from 4 to 5 times daily. ABZ, NCE and NUE will increase for 3 to 4 flights per day. The frequency to KPB will increase from 7 to 11 weekly services the ending of May. Starting March 26th, BLL will be operated 3 times daily by a KLM cityhopper Fokker F70.
Flights to LYS, NCE, TLS, MRS and BOD will all be operated by KLM.

North America

KLM and Northwest Airlines will significantly increase their joint venture services between Europe and North America.
The AMS-JFK flight operated by KLM increases from 11 to 14 times weekly. EWR goes from 7 to 10 times weekly operated with a 777 and A330 by KLM. YVR goes from 5 times a week to a daily service operated with a mix of MD11 and A330 aircraft.
The 6 times weekly BBJ AMS-IAH service will continue as usual on top of the regular 747 KLM service.

Middle & South America

Flights to/from BON will increase from 11 to 12 times a week. AUA will continue with its 5 weekly MD11 flights, however in July/August a 6th flight (747) will be added (AMS-AUA-CUR-AMS). SXM will decrease from 3 to 2 flights, which is customary in this period.

Africa & Middle-East

The KLM frequency to ADD/KRT will increase from 2 to 3 times weekly. The A330 will replace the 767 on this route. The amount of flights between Ams and DXB will go from a 12 weekly service to a twice daily service starting May 28th. The frequency to EBB will increase from 3 to 4 times weekly.

Asia

KLM will start a new AMS-CTU service (Chengdu) operated twice a week with a 777. This flight is codeshared with China Southern (CZ). Flights to PVG will be operated by a 747-400 combi and flights to KIX with a 777.

KLM Cargo:
KLM Cargo obtained rights for a 4th weekly freighter service to KIX. The 747-400ERF will operate this flight to KIX with a stop in ALA.

Correction: The AMS BLL was scheduled to be flown by F70, but advance bookings were so high that the flights have been upgraded to F100. Roumours will have it, that it might be 737 from October or a 4th frequency

Not likely. After the merger with AF, it was decided that KLM would focus on the Nothern part of Europe (UK, Germany, Scandinavia, Baltics) and AF on the south. Destinations that have so much traffic that they can support flights to both AMS and CDG will retain both carriers of course, like CPH, BCN, FCO, etc.

As AF is already flying into BEG, it is more likely that, if AF-KL wants to increase capacity to BEG, that AF would add more flights, than KL adding flights.

Thanks Joost, precise and logical answer.

AF flights ex. BEG are packed so I thought that KL may attempt something on its own considering their services to our neghbouring states.

Will AMS-LAX-AMS ever change to 772 service from the current 744, or change the 74D to 772 on the additional flight?

What happened to the talks of KL ceasing their BON flights in favour of nonstop flights to LIM (772ER) and transferring ops to either CUR or AUA?

not likely, as a lot of horses are carried on the LAX route (very few flights leaving without horses), and they can only be carried on the main deck (not limited to the fact that the animal attendant must have acces to the horses).

And it is a 744M, the 744D is a domestic version (no wingtips is the most noticable change) only ANA and JAL operate.

There was a thread started by AA B777-200 regarding the KLM summer schedule back in December. He mentioned that they would drop DAM. When I check the timetable, DAM is still showing up (in fact with 5 flights instead of their 4 flights that they were running in the fall). Do you have any news of this? Thanks for your help!

I don't know but it would surprise me really as KL is a partner in the High Velocity Train service AMS-BRU-PAR that is about to be inaugurated.

That's what I'm wondering myself. Rumors I've read are getting stronger about KL pulling out of BON in favour of non-stop 777 flights to LIM and transferring the remaining BON flights to either AUA or CUR. If KL will replace the MD11 with the 777 on the LIM routes, this will become a nonstop flight. If so, I don't understand the additional flights to BON as BON itself has little demand. The biggest part of the BON flights have South America bound passengers.

I have a question regarding the AMS-EWR-AMS flight. When will there be 2 flight a day? Will there be a A332 daily and the second flight a 772? Is the second flight already on the KLM reservation system?
Thanks a lot,
