KLM launches new 'business deals'

KLM is introdudng a new ticket category for small and medium-sized business called 'business deals'.

Prices start at EUR199 for places such as CPH and BCN, EUR 289 for LHR.

A few conditions apply - booking 28 days in advance, no minimum stay requirement, changes possible (no details available on the website on any conditions or charges for changes)

This looks like KLM's answer to Easyjet...

And these 'business deals' are - of course - economy only!

Also for my personal travels I find this option quite attractive. If it means that changes are free.

The business deals are T-class. According to the KLM website, they earn 25% FB miles and can be changed against a fee.

This is what the site says

see

http://www.klm.com/travel/aw_en/plan...ions/index.htm

Economy Flexible
No minimum stay is necessary for European travel. For intercontinental travel, a minimum stay is required. Changing a ticket is possible but will require paying an additional fee, and cancelling a ticket is possible against a fee. An exception applies to T- and L-classes for European travel: cancelling a ticket is not possible. You will be seated in Economy Class.

If you change one of these tickets and T class is no longer available you end up paying the difference in fare. If you have a cheaper ticket you pay € 50 change fee plus - if necessary - the difference in fare. To me it seems that the difference between these business sale fares and the cheaper tickets is not justified, unless you are flexible for the flights you want to change to.

From the website for travel agents:

KLM introduceert KLM Businessdeals

Goed nieuws voor ondernemend Nederland! Vanaf 31 mei introduceert KLM “KLM Businessdeals” voor het midden- en kleinbedrijf op 25 belangrijke zakelijke bestemmingen in Europa. Businessdeals zijn wijzigbare T- class tickets, zonder een minimale verblijfsduur, voor een structureel verlaagd tarief. Businessdeals zijn boekbaar tot 28 dagen voor vertrek.

De Businessdeals zijn al verkrijgbaar vanaf EUR199 retour bijvoorbeeld op Barcelona, Kopenhagen, Manchester en Brussel. KLM onderkent met deze Businessdeals de reisbehoefte van de zakelijke reiziger om op een
efficiënte en voordelige manier zaken te doen in Europa. Bovendien biedt KLM klanten in het midden- en kleinbedrijf de mogelijkheid om nog meer te besparen op deze vluchten door middel van het besparingsprogramma BlueBiz.

Naast een scherpe prijsstelling, gunstig gelegen vliegvelden, en een uitgebreid schema en netwerk, heeft KLM een breed aanbod aan E-services zoals Twitter en Mobile Check-In, waardoor de klant zo efficiënt mogelijk kan reizen.
