KLM Airlines makes it return to TT

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines returned to Trinidad and Tobago after almost thirty years.

Senator Randall Mitchell, Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Arts was on hand to welcome the flight that originated in Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The KLM Airbus A330 will fly a winter schedule three times a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

This opens many possibilities for visitors out of Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

KLM will be flying the route Amsterdam – Barbados – Trinidad – Amsterdam (AMS- BGI-POS-AMS).
It operates an extensive network which includes services within Europe and to Asia, Africa, North America, Central and South America, and the Middle East.

The Airports Authority of TT said the introduction of this route can result in lower costs to travel to Europe through increased competition with the addition of a new carrier. Travellers can also look forward to faster times in reaching their final destinations as Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) is a major European hub, which offers direct connections to cities in Europe and across the world.

The Authority added that the new service will also open up the European market for Trinidad and Tobago’s exporters of fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers. Amsterdam is a large market for agricultural products and will provide a vital link in agricultural exports.
