Hello,

Does KLM still operate to Kano, Accra, Khartoum, Freetown, Capetown, Kilimanjaro?

What kind of service (frequency/aircraft) do they operate to these destinations please?

Thank you,

Best regards,
Alain Mengus

KLM serves:
Kano on Sunday
Accra, Khartoum, Capetown, Kilimanjaro everyday
They don't serve freetown.

I believe Kilimanjaro is served with MD-11, Capetown with B747 and other probably 767

Capetown: daily B747-400 full pax via JNB
Kano: twice weekly (thur and sun): B767
Accra: daily B767 (however sometimes a MD11)
Kilimanjaro (Arusha): daily B767

KLM doesn't serve Khartoum anymore (only three weekly with change at Cairo in cooperation with KQ).

Regards
Laurens

The KLM flights to Kano also continue to Abidjan and then return to Amsterdam. The flights to Kilimanjaro continue to Dar es Salaam and then return to Amsterdam.

KLM serves the following African cities:

Tripoli, Abidjan, Accra, LAgos, Kano, Nairobi, Kilimanjaro, Dar es Salaam, Johannesburg, Cape Town.

But I'm wondering how come KLM's route map on August edition of Holland Herald shows KLM flies AMS-AMM-Khartoum?

Aircraft:
Tripoli: B737
Cape Town, Johannesburg: B747
Nairobi: B767/M11
Others: B767
