The carrier will operate one weekly flight via Seoul-Incheon from August 27, 2020, and the route will be serviced with a Boeing 777-200.

KLM is in full compliance with the strict requirements set by the Chinese government regarding the resumption of international flights and all passengers will be required to complete an online health declaration and have their temperature checked prior to departure. Lavatories will be inspected frequently throughout the flight and catering has been limited to minimize contact between guests and cabin crew members. KLM has taken numerous measures to ensure the health and well-being of passengers and staff including mandatory face masks, the addition of extra hygiene equipment on each flight and enhanced aircraft cleaning protocols. Additionally, all KLM aircraft are equipped with HEPA filters that remove airborne particulates as the cabin air is refreshed every few minutes.
