KLM now flies to Hangzhou, China

Ten KLM flights a week to Tokyo from November
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will be operating three additional flights a week between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Tokyo Narita International Airport from November. This raises the total number of Amsterdam-Tokyo flights to ten a week. In so doing, KLM not only strengthens the longstanding ties between the Netherlands and Japan, but also meets demand driven by the many Japanese companies operating in the Netherlands.
The three new flights will be operated using Boeing 747-400 Combi equipment, seating 275 passengers and carrying 35 tonnes of cargo. From 4 November 2010, flight KL863 will depart from Schiphol at 13:50 hours CET on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, arriving in Tokyo the next day at 08:55 hours. The return flight, KL864, will depart from Tokyo at 12:00 hours local time on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, arriving in Amsterdam at 15:35 hours CET the same day. The new flights are ready to be booked from KLM
Asia remains a strategic growth market for KLM. In recent years, KLM has offered its customers a steadily increasing range of flights to Asian destinations. New destinations such as Hangzhou (China) and Denpasar (Indonesia) were added to KLM’s intercontinental network out of Schiphol. KLM also increased flight frequency to Osaka, Shanghai, Seoul and Chengdu.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines launched a scheduled service between Amsterdam and Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport in China on 8 May 2010. This is the sixth destination in China for KLM making it the first airline to offer direct service between Hangzhou and Europe. Hangzhou is the capital of the province Zhejiang, which, together with the neighbouring province Fujian, is home to more than 80 million people.

Via Hangzhou, passengers can catch connecting flights to other destinations within China. Together with its partner China Southern Airlines, KLM offers services to Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and now Hangzhou.
