KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is adding another international destination to its network. From 27 March, 2017, KLM will operate three roundtrips a week to Minneapolis on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The new KLM service comes in addition to the three daily flights between Amsterdam and Minneapolis currently operated by Delta Air Lines, Air France KLM’s transatlantic joint-venture partner.
“KLM is keeping up the pace of its network expansion. This new destination not only provides travellers to Minneapolis with more options, KLM’s codesharing agreement with Delta Air Lines also means that KLM can offer its customers connections to more than 60 North American destinations. This further emphasises the strength of the North Atlantic joint venture between Air France, KLM, Alitalia, and Delta Air Lines”, says Pieter Elbers, KLM President & CEO.
Flight schedule Amsterdam – Minneapolis
The KLM flights will depart Amsterdam at 09:35 hrs CET and arrive in Minneapolis at 11:20 hrs (local time). The return flight will depart at 14:50 hrs local time and arrive in Amsterdam the next day at 05:50 hrs CET. The flights will be operated using an Airbus 330-200 with 18 World Business Class seats, 35 Economy Comfort seats and 214 seats in Economy Class.
Minneapolis is the largest city in the American state of Minnesota and has a population of around 400,000. This city has a unique system of skyways. These glass-enclosed pedestrian bridges link the buildings in the centre of Minneapolis, allowing you to walk through the city while sheltering from the winter cold or summer heat. The city is famous for the Minneapolis Sound. This pop music trend, pioneered by Prince, created a furore in the 1980s. The city also boasts numerous nightclubs, modern art, and a large number of theatres, which are barely surpassed by New York. In terms of commerce, Minneapolis is a centre for medical industries and financial institutions.
