KLM has announced that it will increase seat capacity on its Amsterdam route from Leeds Bradford Airport. The increase will see a KLM mainline 737-700 operating on the mid-morning rotation from March 28, 2020.

Currently, KLM operates three flights a day between Leeds Bradford Airport and Amsterdam Schiphol. The additional seat capacity will result in almost 6 per cent year on year growth and has been introduced to meet the growing demand on the route.

John Cunliffe, Aviation & Commercial Director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “The investment of additional capacity by KLM serves to reconfirm the economic significance of the Leeds City Region, the largest economy in the UK outside of London.”
