After deciding to cut its winter flight schedule to the US, Dutch flag carrier KLM has announced it will reinstate service to Las Vegas and Miami from Amsterdam beginning Dec. 7. Earlier in September, the carrier had canceled US-bound flights when the Dutch government designated the US as a “very high risk area.”
However, US officials recently announced that beginning in November, fully vaccinated travelers from the EU and UK would be allowed to enter the United States. Subsequently, the Dutch government decided to drop previously announced quarantine restrictions for vaccinated travelers from the US.
Given the change in travel restrictions, KLM reversed its decision and announced that it would fly three time weekly between Amsterdam Schiphol to both Miami and Las Vegas.
Flights to Miami depart Amsterdam Tuesday, Friday and Sunday at 10:20 AM, arriving 2:20 PM. Return flights depart the same days at 4:30 PM, arriving at 6:50 AM the following day.
Flights to Las Vegas depart Amsterdam on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 12:35 PM, arriving 2:10 PM. Return flights depart the same days at 3:59 PM, arriving at 10:50 AM the following day.
According to KLM, passengers to these destinations who had been previously rebooked due to the cancellation can contact the airline for a free rebooking to these direct flights.
KLM had also announced an expanded winter schedule with services to four new destinations: Cancun (Mexico), Port of Spain (Trinidad & Tobago), Bridgetown (Barbados) and Mombasa (Kenya).
