KLM Royal Durch Airlines has issued this statement:
Passengers can choose from a wide range of ticket options. As part of our aim to create a customised offer at the best price, KLM and Air France are introducing new fares for flights between Europe and USA and/or Canada. As of December 7, 2017, we will offer our Economy Class customers 3 different ticket options. After selecting their preferred fare they can choose to add various extra services.
Delta Air Lines and Alitalia, the joint venture partners of KLM and Air France, will also announce the introduction of similar fare structure across the Atlantic.
Different ticket options
The three new ticket options, named ‘Light’, ‘Standard’ and ‘Standard +’, have distinct features that will fit the needs of any Economy Class passenger between Europe and USA and/or Canada. Shown in one concise overview, customers can see which services and conditions come with each option, making it easy to compare.
- ‘Light’ is a good option for passengers travelling with hand luggage only
- ‘Standard’ is the best choice for those who do prefer to bring check-in baggage
- With ‘Standard +’, passengers can check in their luggage and get the flexibility to cancel or change their ticket at a fee.
No matter which ticket option one chooses; snacks, meals, beverages and inflight entertainment on board are always included.
Creating a customised journeyWith the new ticket options, we can offer KLM and Air France passengers customised fares at the best price. After choosing a ticket option, customers can easily add various extra services.For example, they can select an extra comfortable seat type or order an à la carte meal – immediately when booking or later.

So, when choosing the ‘Light’ fare, they may still check in one bag at no extra cost. With ‘Standard’ or ‘Standard +’, they can bring a piece of check-in baggage on top of the one included in these ticket options.
Ivory members will receive EUR 10 off the price of their first piece of paid check-in baggage, if purchased online up to 24 hours before departure.
