KLM Royal Dutch Airline will begin operating flights to the city of Boston (BOS) in the United States from the start of the 2019 summer schedule. KLM will operate a three weekly service between Amsterdam and this new destination on the North-East coast of the United States. Flights will be operated with an Airbus A330-300, offering capacity for 292 passengers.
The new KLM service to Boston comes in addition to the two daily flights between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Boston operated by Delta Air Lines, Air France-KLM’s joint-venture partner on transatlantic routes.
