KLM Is Introducing Direct Flights Between Both Sin Cities

KLM Is Introducing Direct Flights Between Both Sin Cities
Scott Dylan

There’s about to be an easier way to get between two of the most sinful cities in the world. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will launch a nonstop route between Las Vegas and Amsterdam next summer. Passengers will be able to get from Las Vegas to Amsterdam directly using KLM for the first time on June 6.

While the airline will begin by offering two flights per week, frequency will increase to three flights per week beginning on July 2. Flights between Las Vegas and Amsterdam will be offered on Fridays, Sundays and Tuesdays once the full schedule is up and running. McCarran International Airport and Schiphol Airport are the two hubs that are being used for the route. This new direct option opens up exciting possibilities for travelers who like the idea of enjoying hassle-free travel between two cities that are known for their party-friendly atmospheres.

What can travelers expect when they book tickets between Las Vegas and Amsterdam using KLM during the summer of 2019? The route will be operated using the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. This aircraft seats 294 passengers in total. A total of 30 of the seats on the 787-9 Dreamliner are located in business class.

KLM’s newest route offers travelers a lot to be happy about. The fact that KLM has decided to add Las Vegas to its roster means that travelers who use the airline will now have many more options for connecting flights in the United States. The new Las Vegas stop is especially promising for people looking for KLM connections to and from the American West Coast.

KLM currently only serves a handful of cities within the United States. The list includes Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, New York City, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C. KLM also serves several cities in Canada. The current list of Canadian destinations served by KLM includes Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal and Toronto.

Future plans aren’t all about expansion at KLM. The airline recently announced that it would be cutting some routes that have proven to be unprofitable. Flights to Sierra Leone, Monrovia and Liberia are set to be cut in 2019. The good news for travelers who routinely head to these destinations is that service will still be offered by Brussels Airlines, Air France and Turkish Airlines.

Las Vegas seems like a natural fit for KLM’s newest route due to the fact that the city is popular for both leisure and business travel. Las Vegas is currently served by more than 200 weekly nonstop flights originating from 20 cities in nine counties around the world. A total of 17 carriers currently operate flights to Las Vegas.

    Sadly, by the time I’m travelling to Vegas next year, we’ll be out of the EU, and I’ll probably have to get a visa just to travel via AMS. Jon is sad Jon.

    Direct flight is defined as a single flight number between two cities, but could include intermediate stops. The headline should really have said “NONSTOP” service. I hope they coordinate their schedules with their SkyTeam partner (Delta) at LAS if passengers want to make connections onward to other West Coast cities, though KLM already flies nonstop to Salt Lake City, LA and SFO.

    20 cities and 9 countries? Where do you get your data?
    China, Japan, Mexico, USA, Canada, Panama, Denmark, England, Sweden, Brazil, Korea, Germany and I am sure there are more. Southwest alone has over 50 year round destinations. Check your facts man…. not even close
