KL summer schedule

http://www.klm.com/corporate/en/news..._schedule.html


KLM service schedule at a glance

In light of the current difficult economic circumstances and high fuel costs, KLM's service capacity during the summer season, which commences on 25 March, will remain the same as last year, with hardly any expansion.

Within this carefully balanced capacity policy, KLM intends to consolidate its growth in Central and South America, two new destinations will be introduced in Africa (Luanda and Lusaka) and the total capacity deployed in North America and Asia will remain virtually the same. KLM’s strategic position in Greater China will be strengthened even further with the introduction of a non-stop service to Taipei and an increase in the number of flights to Hangzhou during the height of summer. Capacity on services to destinations in the Middle East will be reduced by 8 percent. The total capacity of the airline's service to destinations in Europe will also continue to remain the same, however the number of seats on flights to Southern Europe will be reduced, whilst strategic positions in North-western Europe will be strengthened.

KLM will add new, state-of-the-art and fuel-efficient aircraft to its short and long-haul fleet in order to replace the old, less efficient fleet.

I remember to have read somewhere that AF-KL is now the biggest EU airline serving the Greater China region. Does AF-KL see some special potential there?

Who doesn't see some special potential there? It's a huge - and growing - airline market, though admittedly, it's still mostly a domestic travel market.
