KLM Returns To 2000/01 Winter Capacity

Tue Aug 20, 2002 3:03 am

KLM's next winterschedule will see the same capacity as the 2000/01 winterschedule. This means that all cutbacks due to September 11th have been eliminated (compared with winter schedule 2000/01) and an increase in capacity of 7% compared to the 2001/02 winterschedule.

Highlights of the new winterschedule are the increase in capacity to the UK, capacity adjustments in continental Europe, reduction compared to present schedule to certain destinations and an increase to others.

As previously announced KLM will increase capacity to the following destinations:
- MAN from 7 to 8 dailies
- LCY from 4 to 5
- NCL from 5 to 7
- ABZ from 3 to 4 (3 KLMuk, 1 KLC)
- MME will get 3 F100 instead of 3 F50
- new flight between ABZ and SVG

Furthermore capacity increases to:
- LHR from RTM (F70 instead of F50)
- BRS all F70
- CWL 3 F70
- VIE one F70 replaced by B737
- JNB from 10 to 11
- AMS-STN taken over by Buzz (already aanounced)

Reductions to
- MUC, FRA, CDG, FCO, NCE, GOT all 1 daily less than summer schedule
- CCS from 6 to 5 during November only

Moreover, KLM will fly AMS-TLV-IST-AMS 6 times weekly (no flight on saturdays), no seasonal reduction to DTW, PEK will remain 4 times weekly

First a correction KLM will fly AMS-IST-TLV-AMS (IST being a technical stop only).

Furthermore an update. The following flightnumbers will disappear for the winter:
KL1605/6 (FCO), KL1263/4 (NCE) and KL1772/3 (FRA).

New flight numebers will be UK2221/2/3/4 (LCY), UK2131/2/3/6 (MAN) and KL1041/36 (ABZ-SVG).

EWR will return to NWA and MIA (as previously announced) will be served by KLM (KL627/8).

Actually a minor correction, NCL-AMS is up to 7 daily from 6 x daily, and not as you stated from 5 x daily  Smile
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Gkirk you're correct (I just blindly followed the KLM fax not realising that I should have mentioned that all changes are compared to winterschedule 2001/02 and not compared to summer 2002 schedule)

OO-VEG, according to Amadeus the following schedule
KL465 (or KL467) : AMS dep 20:55, IST arr 01:10 dep 02:10, TLV arr 04:10
KL466 (or KL465, KL467, KL466 not sure yet): TLV dep 05:40, AMS arr 09:40

No local traffic on AMS-IST-AMS and IST-TLV (as stated previously IST is only a technical/operational stop)

DutchDeltaBlue, no KLM AMS-ATL anymore

Thanks LJ

The flightnumber 466 is wrong according to the KLM/NWA timetable. It says:
AMS-TLV (via IST) 467 on days 1-3-5 and 465 on days 2-4-6. Return flights have the same flightnumbers.
