KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has announced their new summer schedule for 2017.

For 2017, KLM has introduced a direct line between Split and Amsterdam, which means that the airline will now fly to two destinations in Croatia: Zagreb and Split, reports HRTurizam on February 20, 2017. TCN first announced the news back in December, but today we bring you more details about the new line between Split and Amsterdam.

In the preseason from April 22 – Jul 2, 2017 and in the post season from September 9 to October 28, 2017, KLM will organize flights every Saturday and Sunday, and will use the Embraer 100 with 90 seats. In the peak season from June 9 – August 31, 2017, KLM will increase the number of flights to 6 flights a week, or the number of passengers if the flights use the Boeing 737 aircraft with 132 seats available. 

“We want to offer our customers more direct flights from Amsterdam to the cities of their choice. Split seemed like the logical choice because it is Croatia’s top destination, and we recognized the need for new flights there. But for us it is an important decision because for the first time in history we have established a direct flight to Split. In addition to the previously announced new destination of London City, KLM will introduce eight new destinations during 2017, which means it will offer flights to 82 European destinations from Amsterdam,” says Pieter Elbers, President and CEO of KLM.

At the beginning of the summer schedule for 2017, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will expand its network to seven new European destinations, three of which will be offered in the peak summer season. The KLM network will be expanded with new daily flights to Gdansk (Poland), Graz (Austria), Porto (Portugal) and Malaga (Spain). In addition to Split, there will be two other new seasonal destinations (Cagliari and Catania, Italy) for the aircraft on weekends during the early and late season and every day during July and August.

In 2016, the Dutch market recorded 391,047 arrivals and 2,698,563 overnight stays, of which more than half (precisely 190.00 arrivals and 1,600.000 overnight stays) were made in camps. In the summer of 2015, 11.7 million Dutch people (68%) went on vacation and spent a total of 16 billion euros, of which 13 billion was spent abroad and 3 billion was spent within their country.
