KLM announces new route to Scandinavia, with flights between Amsterdam and Alesund, Norway

Gateway to spectacular natural attractions
Faster, more convenient access to Norway

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will commence flights from Amsterdam to Alesund, Norway, from 04 April, 2013, providing a new gateway to some of the most extraordinary natural attractions of Scandinavia.

Alesund is the seventh KLM destination in Norway and the 15th in Scandinavia, providing easy access to the spectacular Norwegian fjords, including Geirangerfjord, which has UNESCO world heritage status.

The town also is the base for hiking in the Sunnmore Alps, as well as cross-country skiing, fishing, diving and even bird watching on the neighbouring island of Runde, which is home to the widest variety of sea bird species in Scandinavia.

KLM will fly between Amsterdam and Alesund twice daily, except for Saturdays when there will be a single service.

Flight KL 1327 will depart Amsterdam at 8:40pm daily, arriving in Alesund at 10:45pm, while the return service, KL 1322 will leave Alesund at 6:30am, arriving back in Amsterdam at 8:45am. Journey time is two hours and five minutes.

In addition, every day except Saturday, flight KL 1325 will depart Amsterdam at 2:25pm and arrive in Alesund at 4:30pm, then return as flight KL 1326, departing at 5:05pm and arriving at 7:15pm.

KLM's flights between Amsterdam and Alesund will be operated with single class Fokker 70 twinjets, each seating 76 passengers.

As well as providing a new entry point into Norway, KLM's flights to Alesund will provide an easier way for travellers to reach the region, which currently requires many passengers to fly from continental Europe via major Scandinavian hubs.

KLM offers over 100 flights per week from Australia to Europe, with code share services from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to Asia on partner carriers Malaysia Airlines, China Southern Airlines and Etihad Airways, and onward service to Amsterdam

The AIR FRANCE KLM group serves a combined total of more than 125 destinations throughout Europe.
