KLM announce new route from Cork to Amsterdam
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will launch a new daily service between Cork Airport and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport from March next year.
The route will be operated by KLM subsidiary, KLM Cityhopper using Embraer 175 and Embraer 190 aircraft, depending on the day of the week.
The new KLM route is the latest in the Air France-KLM group’s expansion in Munster.
Air France announced last month that they will operate twice daily next summer from Cork Airport.
“We’re delighted to see the result of our hard work and incredible support of our business community and Tourism Ireland further increase the hub connectivity out of Cork Airport," said Brian Gallagher, Cork Airport’s Head of Aviation and Commercial Business Development.
"This is a very satisfying win for Cork. This new KLM route to Amsterdam will be Cork Airport’s eleventh new service announcement in the past year, as the airport continues to expand both its capacity and its route network to major European hubs.
"Following our 9% growth delivered so far this year, this sets us on a course to be Ireland’s fastest growing airport again in 2020.”
