KLM Start New Cork Service
KLM Cityhopper has started its new daily service between Amsterdam Schipol and Cork Airport on Monday 3rd August. The route was initially scheduled to start last March but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The route is being operated by 88 seat Embraer EMB-175 aircraft.
Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Ireland, H.E. Mr. Adriaan Palm said “I would like to congratulate KLM and Cork Airport on the introduction of the new daily flight between Amsterdam and Cork. It is a sign of the continued strengthening and deepening of ties between Ireland and the Netherlands. This is also illustrated clearly by the increasing trade and tourism between our two countries. The new daily flight is also a sign of confidence in the future. For now, only essential travel is possible as we continue to fight COVID-19, but the daily flight will provide invaluable connectivity for the citizens and the business community of the South of Ireland in the future. I hope that soon people will also be able to use the Cork-Amsterdam connection for non-essential visits. They can then experience the wonderful offerings available in both Ireland and the Netherlands.”
The new service will depart from Amsterdam Schipol at 15.50 with a 16.40 arrival time in Cork, with the return flight departing after a 30 minute turnaround and a 20.00 arrival back in Amsterdam. The flight can be booked online at www.klm.com
