KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will start operating a daily service to Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A., in cooperation with Northwest Airlines. Dallas-Fort Worth will be KLM’s 61st intercontinental destination. The service will start March 30, 2008 and will be operated with Airbus 330-200 equipment, offering 30 World Business Class seats and 221 Economy Class seats.

“Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is an important business and leisure destination, and is one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S.A.. For that reason we want to offer our customers another direct flight to an important growth region in the U.S.A”, says Peter Hartman, president and CEO of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

Dallas-Fort Worth is the largest economic metropolitan area in the U.S.A., not being served by the combined KLM-Northwest Airlines network. Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex has a population of 6 Million inhabitants, ranking 4th among other U.S.A. metro markets. The airport of Dallas-Forth Worth ranks 6th in the world for passengers, with over 60 million passengers annually.

Flight KL669 (NW8669) will depart from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the morning and arrives the same day in Dallas-Fort Worth in the early afternoon. The return flight, KL670 (NW8670), will depart from Dallas-Fort Worth two hours later and arrives at Schiphol the following day in the early morning. This schedule offers excellent connections with European, Indian and African services.

The start-up of the new service to Dallas-Fort Worth is part of KLM/Northwest Airlines’ commitment to serve the North American market. Dallas-Fort Worth will be the nineteenth North American destination served by the combined KLM - Northwest Airlines Joint Venture via Schiphol. In total, KLM and Northwest Airlines will operate 250 flights per week between Europe and North America.
