KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will soon be expanding its global network to include Las Vegas, Nevada. As of summer 2019, the entertainment city of the United States will be accessible up to three times a week with a direct KLM flight from Amsterdam. The flights will be operated using Boeing 787-9 aircraft, with capacity for 294 passengers.
Pieter Elbers, KLM President and CEO, said: "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."
KLM will operate flights between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Las Vegas on Fridays and Sundays from 6 June 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 from 2 July 2019.
