KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is to resume scheduled services between Amsterdam and Buenos Aires in October after a gap of ten years. The launch, which will come in October, will become Buenos Aires’ 67th intercontinental destination. “With Buenos Aires as the seventh destination for KLM in Latin America, we reinforce our position in this strongly growing region,” said KLM president and CEO Peter Hartman. “Latin America is of key importance to the extensive Air France-KLM network. Buenos Aires, with 14 million inhabitants, is one of the most important destinations in this fast growing market. Argentina is a very popular tourist destination for European travellers. Furthermore Argentina has a large business market as well, with the Netherlands as an important import/export trading partner.” The new direct service to Buenos Aires Ezeiza airport will be operated three times per week upcoming winter season, where a frequency increase to four times per week by March 2012 is foreseen.
