KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will soon be expanding its global network to include Las Vegas (LAS), Nevada.
Beginning in summer 2019, Las Vegas will be accessible up to three times a week with a nonstop KLM flight from Amsterdam.
The flights will be operated using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner equipment and will seat 294 passengers.
“Las Vegas will become KLM’s 18th North Atlantic destination to be served directly. Including Las Vegas as KLM’s latest destination will offer our customers even more flight connections to and from the west coast of America,” says Pieter Elbers, KLM President and CEO.
KLM will operate flights between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Las Vegas on Fridays and Sundays from June 6, 2019.
The Boeing 787-9 flights will offer 30 seats in World Business Class seats, 45 in Economy Comfort Class and 219 in Economy Class. A third weekly flight will be launched on Tuesdays beginning July 2, 2019. The new KLM flights will extend Air France-KLM’s transatlantic network and strengthen its joint venture portfolio with Delta Air Lines.
The flight schedule will be as follows:
- KL0635 will depart from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol at 12:30 and arrive at 14:15 local time in Las Vegas at McCarran International.
- KL0636 will depart Las Vegas at 16:05 local time and arrive the next day at 11:05 in Amsterdam at Schiphol.
