Dutch airline KLM is to return to London City airport from 6 February 2017 with direct flights to Amsterdam Schipol airport.
Flights with initially operate once a day on weekdays from 6 February 2017. The schedule will progressively increase to four times a day on weekdays with daily flights on Saturdays and twice daily on Sundays from 28 March 2017.
A four times daily schedule will clearly allow for ample connections to and from KLM’s extensive international network at Amsterdam Schipol.
Flights will be operated by KLM CityHopper using 100 seat Embraer E-190 aircraft (which should afford good leg room).

The London City – Amsterdam route is currently served by both CityJet and BA CityFlyer so passengers will have an extensive schedule of flights to choose from in 2017.
KLM currently serves London City from Amsterdam via a codeshare arrangement with CityJet and it is assumed this will discontinue after KLM launches its own flights.
