KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is to launch a daily service between Belfast and Amsterdam from May.

The Dutch carrier will return to Northern Ireland after a 15-year absence with the daily route from George Best Belfast City airport to Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

KLM ceased direct flights between the two airports in late 1999.

Belfast City airport’s commercial and marketing director, Katy Best, said: “Attracting an airline such as KLM to Northern Ireland, is a major win for the airport, tourism within the region and local businesses who will benefit from KLM’s worldwide network. 

KLM places significant emphasis on customer service and offers a product that is flexible, comfortable and desirable for each and every passenger making the airline a perfect fit for Belfast City airport where continuously enhancing the passenger experience remains a priority.”

In November, Spanish airline Vueling announced it was launching its first service to Belfast from its base in Barcelona.
