KLM celebrates 25 years of continuous operation of the Bucharest - Amsterdam route
On 9 April KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the oldest airline in the world which still retains its original name, celebrated the 25th anniversary of the continuous operation of the route Bucharest, Henri Coandă - Amsterdam, Schiphol.
The first flight between Amsterdam and Bucharest took place on March 31, 1965 as part of a route that included several European cities: Amsterdam-Vienna-Belgrade-Bucharest. The flight was operated by a Lockheed Electra PH-LLK aircraft called the "Pallas". This operation was suspended on November 1, 1969 due to reasons related to the political and economic climate in Southeast Europe and implicitly in Romania.
Since April 9, 1996, KLM has been flying frequently on the route Bucharest - Amsterdam
KLM returned to Henri Coandă Airport in Bucharest on April 9, 1996 and since then has been continuously present in Romania with a daily service. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines currently operates two daily frequencies, connecting Henri Coanda Bucharest Airport and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and offering convenient connections to many destinations around the world.
In the context of the global health crisis, KLM places the health and safety of its customers and staff at the heart of its priorities and monitors, in real time, how the situation evolves to provide the best tailored solutions.
Flexibility of purchased airline tickets
KLM currently offers full flexibility for booked air tickets, being 100% changeable or refundable until December 31, 2021. KLM passengers can change their reservation free of charge, get a refundable loan if they no longer want to travel or opt for full refund if the flight has been canceled.
Because we are still talking about the anniversary of KLM in Romania, I want to mention that this airline operator will remain in my soul for the simple fact that the first international flight I made was on board a KLM plane. Since then, more than 10 years have passed. At the same time, I was so fascinated by the flight with KLM that I laid the foundations of the AirlinesTravel.ro site and I have now reached tens - hundreds of flights.
