KLM is to launch Amsterdam – Mumbai flights on 29 October as part of its 2017-18 winter schedule, providing up to 20 tonnes of cargo capacity.
The three Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner flights a week will depart on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays from Amsterdam at 13.00h, arriving in Mumbai at 01.55h, and the return will leave Mumbai at 04.00h, landing in Amsterdam at 08.45h.
Air France KLM Martinair Cargo executive vice president, Marcel de Nooijer says: “By introducing Mumbai, the economic heart of India, to our schedule from Schiphol we are able to further increase our already existing network presence in India.”
“Together with our flights operated from Paris Charles de Gaulle we will offer the market a total of 28 services to/from the Indian subcontinent.”
Mumbai, on the West coast of India, is the capital of the Maharashtra state, and is the most densely populated city in the country.
It is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India, and one of the world’s top 10 centres of commerce in terms of global financial flow.
