Effective 4th May 2020, KLM will fly 3 weekly with Airbus A330-300 (292 seats) from Amsterdam Schiphol to Austin, Texas. Austin is the 19th North Atlantic destination to be served by KLM.

The new KLM flights expand the Air France-KLM transatlantic network and augment the joint-venture portfolio with Delta. To make these flights possible, changes will be made to the long haul KLM network to free up slots at Schiphol. “We have built up a robust transatlantic network thanks to our joint ventures with Air France and Delta. We will continue to optimise this network. As part of this we launched services to Boston and Las Vegas and are now adding Austin to our North American destinations”, said Pieter Elbers, CEO and President KLM.
