KLM is increasing its capacity from March 27 when a fourth flight a day will be introduced to the main Dutch city, Amsterdam. The flight will operate with 132-seater B737 aircraft. The new service will depart from Amsterdam Schiphol at 8.40am and will return from Budapest at 11.20am. The additional frequency will offer shorter connections to numerous destinations.
Dror Harel, country manager of KLM Hungary, said: “This will provide four connections between the Dutch capital and Budapest. The main reason for the expansion was to ensure our customers’ comfort.
“Besides the fact that Hungarian travellers can easily reach amazing destinations, transfer times will be shorter. For example, if someone is travelling from Budapest to Montreal the customer will have to wait five hours less than before. Customers travelling to Shanghai will have a two-hour shorter waiting time.”
Kam Jandu (pictured talking), Chief Commercial Officer of Budapest Airport, said: “Budapest Airport is delighted to see a fourth daily flight to Amsterdam operated by our longest-serving international airline partner KLM. It is clear to see that with the additional connection via Schiphol, Hungarian business and leisure passengers will be able to access greater connections and improve journey times, which is fantastic for all concerned.
“Thanks to the new timetable KLM offers shorter connection times to popular destinations such as Bangkok and Havana, furthermore our customers have choice from a wider range of flight schedules to cities like Beijing, New York, San Francisco or Shanghai.”
