Starting today, KLM will fly to Edmonton (Canada), a new long-haul destination operated three-times weekly. Since 18 May 2015, the Company has also been serving three new daily routes in Europe - Belfast (Northern Ireland), Montpellier (France) and Cracow (Poland). These four new destinations will significantly expand KLM’s network from its Amsterdam-Schiphol hub.
Edmonton is the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta and the country’s fifth-largest city after Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary. It is northern Alberta’s largest economic centre and an important location for the gas and petroleum industry.
Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, is an attractive tourist destination and one of the most popular destinations for a city trip in the United Kingdom. The city is Northern Ireland's economic driver.
Cracow, in southern Poland is the country’s second-largest city. It is also one of the country’s oldest cities, so it is an attractive business destination and a charming tourist location. Its historic city centre is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Montpellier, situated on the Mediterranean Sea, is the capital of the French region of Languedoc-Roussillon. Montpellier is the eighth-largest city in France and is home to one of Europe’s oldest universities. Montpellier is a historic, effervescent city and an ideal holiday destination.
