KLM is using Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft for the flights. KLM’s versions of the planes seat 294, including 30 in business class. The carrier’s Las Vegas-Amsterdam route is currently operating on Thursdays and Sundays. A Tuesday flight will be added on July 2.
The new route is KLM’s 18th to North America and the Caribbean, including options in the US, Canada, Mexico and Aruba. (More KLM News: KLM Opens Paid Restaurant In Its Amsterdam Business Class Lounge)
