KLM’s North American network of destinations is practically back to its 2019 level, before the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the seating capacity and flight frequencies are still far below that of 2019.
The airline will be a total of 16 North American destinations in the summer of 2021. That is one destination less compared to the summer of 2019, namely Salt Lake City. However, KLM will continue to offer a direct flight from Amsterdam to Salt Lake City in cooperation with its partner Delta Air Lines.
KLM intends to add Las Vegas and Minneapolis over the summer, but this will depend on the end of travel restrictions between the United States and Europe.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, KLM preserved its destination network as much as possible by reducing seat capacity, so that passengers could travel if necessary and cargo transport could continue. This strategy greatly supported KLM during the COVID-19 crisis, making it now much easier to expand its operations again.
