Wakefield Businesses Get Increased Access to Amsterdam
Tue 17 May 2016
This week has seen the start of a fourth additional weekday service between Leeds Bradford Airport and Amsterdam, as KLM Royal Dutch Airlines increase their capacity to provide an additional 25,800 seats on the route over summer 2016.
The increase in KLM frequency is as a result of strong passenger growth on the Leeds Bradford to Amsterdam route throughout last year. Passengers using the popular service can depart from Leeds Bradford four times each weekday; connecting through the award winning Amsterdam Schiphol Airport hub to more than 130 worldwide connections via KLM’s network.
This growth means there is yet more choice and flexibility for people across the Yorkshire region wishing to connect onto destinations across Europe or to the Far East, China, South America and South Africa. Travellers wishing to fly point to point between Leeds Bradford and Amsterdam, will also benefit from a more convenient flight schedule; helping them to complete a full day of business in the Netherlands.
The KLM flights will depart Leeds Bradford at 6:20, 9:10, 13:25 and 17:30. On the return journey, the flights depart Amsterdam at 08:25, 12:40, 16:45 and 21:10.
Tony Hallwood, Aviation Development Director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said:
“We’re really pleased to see this increase to the KLM schedule from Leeds Bradford. Our customers have been making regular use of Amsterdam route as it’s such an important key market for business travellers alongside offering fantastic connections to over a hundred worldwide destinations.
