According to the airline. Vaccinated travellers who have a negative PCR test result will be able to make use of this service again starting Tuesday 7 September.
Tickets are on sale through the usual channels.
Pieter Elbers, President and Chief Executive Officer, KLM said:
“We are delighted that the Canadian government is setting a good example by allowing vaccinated people to travel again. Thanks to its decision to ease restrictions, we can once again do what we do best: connect people and give them an unforgettable experience. Our customers can now reunite with their families in Canada, or do business face-to-face. Being able to fly passengers to our various Canadian destinations is an important milestone and another step on the road to recovery. We hope that travel restrictions to and from the US will also be lifted soon.”
A Gradual Network Rebuild
KLM have gone very much for the softly-solflty approach to its network reconstruction, by keeping a barebones network running during the harsh times and scaling up when it is possible to so
Or scaling down in the case of some US destinations as the Netherlands imposes quarentine requirements on US Arrivals.
For now, more connections are opening up for passengers who need to travel to reunite with loved ones, to carry out business or to travel – providing they meet the Candian entry criteria.
