KLM launches new flight to China
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines today launches its first flight to the Chinese city of Xiamen, bringing to seven the number of destinations in China it services from Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport.
KLM is the only European airline to fly directly to Xiamen. The same is true for the Chinese cities of Chengdu and Hangzhou.
With 43 weekly flights to China, KLM is the European airline that offers the largest number of direct flights there, according to KLM head Peter Hartman.
KLM, which used to focus on Japan and Singapore, is shifting its focus to China. A key factor in choosing a destination, KLM says, is its economic activity. The presence of foreign companies is an important requirement. So are the city’s size and tourist attractions.
In addition to Xiamen, Chengdu and Hangzhou, KLM also flies to Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
