Strong economic growth in South America has tempted KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to resume flights to Buenos Aires, after a 10-year absence.
The Dutch carrier will start flying three times per week between its Amsterdam hub and the capital of Argentina from October 31.
The route, which will be operated with a B777-200ER in a two-class configuration (economy and business), may see an increase in frequency to four times per week, from March 2012.
KLM’s CEO Peter Hartman said the relaunch of flights to Buenos Aires, KLM’s seventh destination in Latin America, will “reinforce our position in this strongly growing region”.
He said: “Latin America is of key importance to the extensive Air France-KLM network. Buenos Aires, with 14 million inhabitants, is one of the most important destinations in this fast growing market.”
Argentina is an important import-export trading partner with the Netherlands, added Hartman.
Flight KL707 will depart from Amsterdam Schiphol airport at 10.10am Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, arriving in Buenos Aires at 8.20pm.
From Buenos Aires, flight KL708 departs from Buenos Aires on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10.20pm, arriving in Amsterdam the following day at 3.35pm.
Fellow Skyteam member Aerolineas Argentinas will offer KLM customers connecting flights from Buenos Aires to other destinations in Argentina.
