Edited Press Release
AMSTERDAM -(Dow Jones)- KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (NYSE
:KLM - News) NV
, in cooperation with Northwest Airlines, will start daily roundtrip service between Amsterdam and Atlanta, Georgia, in the southern United States, at the start of the 2004/05 winter schedule on Sunday, Oct. 31, 2004, the Dutch airline said Monday.
KLM will deploy Boeing 767-300ER equipment on this route.
KLM suspended service on the Atlanta route shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001, responding to a sharp decline in traffic. Now that the economy is recovering slightly and traffic is gaining momentum, the route has become viable once more.
In addition, Atlanta is the main hub of future SkyTeam partner Delta Air Lines. It is expected that traffic will increase sharply on the hub-to-hub connection between Amsterdam and Atlanta.
Atlanta itself is a key business center and home to enterprises such as Coca Cola and CNN. The Netherlands is one of the leading foreign investors in the state of Georgia, with major holdings in the real estate sector, among other things.
