Today, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has begun offering direct flight service from Amsterdam to Las Vegas. The airline will service weekly flights between Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Las Vegas on Thursdays and Sundays, with plans to launch a third weekly flight on Tuesdays starting on July 2.

“We are so pleased to welcome such an esteemed airline as KLM and these new nonstop flights from Amsterdam,” said Rosemary Vassiliadis, director of aviation for McCarran International Airport. “With its extensive global network and SkyTeam partners, KLM will make Las Vegas more accessible to the world.”

These flights will be utilizing Boeing 787-9 aircrafts that will be equipped with seating to accommodate up to 294 passengers. They will offer 30 seats in World Business Class seats, 45 in Economy Comfort Class, and 219 in Economy Class.

“Las Vegas will become KLM’s 18th North Atlantic destination to be served directly. Including Las Vegas as KLM’s latest destination will offer our customers even more flight connections to and from the West Coast of America,” said Pieter Elbers, president and CEO of KLM Airlines.

These additional KLM flights will serve to expand Air France-KLM’s transatlantic network, strengthen its joint venture portfolio with Delta Airlines, and connect travelers to one of the world’s most desirable destination for leisure and business travel.

“Las Vegas is widely known as the ‘entertainment capital of the world,’ and it’s a reputation that is well-deserved,” said Steve Hill, president/CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA).

“Whether traveling to the destination for business or leisure, visitors can expect world-class hospitality and experiences. We look forward to sharing Las Vegas’ unique offerings with guests traveling on KLM’s new direct service, and are confident this partnership will pave the way for tremendous opportunities in the future.”
