KLM Adds Service to Riyadh, Adjusts Schedule to Gulf States From September 28, 2020
KLM announced on Tuesday that they will add four weekly flights from Amsterdam-Schiphol to Riyadh and adjust their schedule to the Gulf States from September 28, 2020. The Amsterdam-Riyadh route will be operated with an Airbus A330-200.
Today (July 21, 2020) KLM Royal Dutch Airlines announced that they will adjust their Gulf State offer from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport and add service to Riyadh from September 28, 2020. The carrier will offer four-times weekly service to Riyadh and the route will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 configured with 18 Business and 246 Economy Class seats. The new Riyadh service will expand KLM’s destination offer, but not number of flights because Riyadh will be combined with an existing destination. The departing flights from Schiphol will fly direct to Riyadh, while the return flight will make a short stopover in Dammam, Saudia Arabia, an existing route network destination.
From August 3, 2020, KLM’s flights to Muscat (Oman) will be operated with a short stopover in Abu Dhabi. The route will be operated three-times weekly and serviced with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner configured with 30 World Business Class and 264 Economy Class seats. KLM will also resume flights via Kuwait to Bahrain starting September 29, 2020, with three weekly flights, while the airline’s daily service between Amsterdam and Dubai will remain unchanged. KLM’s Amsterdam-Dubai route is serviced with a Boeing 777-200 configured with 34 World Business Class and 286 Economy Class seats. In total, from September 28, 2020, KLM will serve seven Gulf States destinations from Amsterdam-Schiphol including Dubai and Abu Dhabi (UAE), Dammam and Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Muscat (Oman), Manama (Bahrain) and Kuwait City (Kuwait).
