Hyderabad, Oct 29 (UNI) KLM will add two more weekly flights between Hyderabad and Amsterdam, increasing the services from four to six a week this winter.
Additionally, KLM will raise capacity on its daily flights from Delhi to Amsterdam by 45 per cent by utilising Boeing 747-400 equipment, instead of the MD-11 aircraft currently operated on the route.

For its services between Amsterdam and Delhi, KLM had deployed a Boeing 747 aircraft, starting October 28, with a capacity of 42 seats in World Business Class and 386 seats in Economy Class.
