KLM announced it will begin new service to Santiago, Chile next February.  Additionally, the airline said it would begin new seasonal service to Florence, Italy this winter, with twice-daily service.

In addition to the new routes, the carrier also announced it would increase the frequency on various existing routes.  In Europe, the airline’s seasonal service to Kent, England and Ålesund, Norway will become year round service.  The carrier will also increase its seasonal service to Mexico City from seven to nine flights a week.

KLM will also increase its service to Bangkok, Thailand, from seven flights a week to ten.  In addition, the airline will begin offering daily flights to Abu Dhabi.

KLM will also begin replacing its Fokker 70 fleet of aircraft with six new Embraer 90 aircraft this winter.  The airline also plans to complete the reconfiguration of its new World Business class on its fleet of Boeing 747s.
