I was just wondering what has become of this airline. i remember a while ago they had several daily flights to amsterdam from belfast, then they suddenly seemed to disappear. I was at stansted a while back and saw none of their f100`s or 146`s. why did klm buy a successful uk airline just to shut it down a number of years later, did it make a profit? Or was klm after the slots or aircraft to launch buzz at stansted? what happened to all the internal uk routes. Maybe they saw easy jet coming and made a hasty retreat?

Any idea?

KLM uk are still operating, but have begun to focus flights from UK regional airports to Amsterdam to feed KLM. Dont know about Belfast, but they currently operate 5 x daily from NCL to AMS going up to 6 x daily soon.

When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Strange you haven't seen a F100 at Stansted as they still operate AMS-STN 9 x daily with F100 (allthough the Buzz 146s come regulary to AMS nowadays).

Anyway, as you can see at AMS, KLMuk is alive and doing quite well (judging by the number of flights ex-AMS).


BTW does anybody know why the G-UKFL is all white for some time now?
