Schiphol’s mainport status. The KLM network is crucial to the Dutch
economy,
contributing to a favourable business establishment climate, generating
employment and creating opportunities for Dutch businesses.

 

Hangzhou is the capital of the
province Zhejiang, which, together with the neighbouring province
Fujian, is
home to more than 80 million people. Via Hangzhou, passengers can catch
connecting flights to other destinations within China. Together with its
partner China Southern Airlines, KLM offers passengers services to
Beijing,
Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and now Hangzhou. 

 

KLM is the first airline to offer direct
service between Hangzhou and Europe. This sixth destination in China
consolidates KLM’s position in this fast-growing market.
