KLM launches additional flight to Dresden

Two flights per day from Saxony’s capital city to Amsterdam


After two years at Dresden, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is upping its flight frequency this coming autumn. From 3 September to 26 October it will be flying from Saxony’s capital city to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport twice a day (except Saturdays and Sundays).

Dresden became the tenth German destination in KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ timetable on 16 May 2016. Since then, more and more passengers have been making use of the short flight from Dresden to Amsterdam Schiphol and the connections to the worldwide flight network of the Dutch airline and its 20 SkyTeam partners.

KLM had already started using a larger 88-seater Embraer 175 in its 2017/2018 winter timetable. A second flight is being added on weekday evenings from 3 September to 26 October, bringing the total number of weekly KLM flights between Saxony’s capital city and the Amsterdam Schiphol hub airport to up to 12. The flights will be serviced by KLM Cityhopper Embraer 175 and Embraer 190 aircraft. Passengers can choose between Europe Business Class and Economy Class, which includes an Economy Comfort zone. Tickets start at €98 including taxes and charges.

The additional frequency reduces the overall travel time from Dresden to many international destinations such as Nairobi, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore by around 4 hours 25 minutes.

“Germany is an important market for KLM. Dresden is a perfect fit for our route network strategy and is a welcome addition to the destinations in Germany that we can offer our customers,” says Warner Rootliep, Managing Director KLM Cityhopper.

Markus Kopp, Director Marketing and Sales, Mitteldeutscher Flughafen AG and General Manager of Flughafen Dresden GmbH, adds: “The route to and from Amsterdam is a real plus for our timetable and an asset for the whole region, as both tourists and businesses can benefit from the link to this major hub airport and the many onward connections it offers.”
