KLM resumes flights from Schiphol Airport to Shanghai

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has announced the resumption of passenger flights resumed passenger flights from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Shanghai following a five-month suspension, the company said.

Flights resume due to the relaxation of travel restrictions by the Chinese government. These flights are in addition to the cargo airlift that started on 20 April for the transport of medical supplies.

Flights to mainland China were suspended at the beginning of February in connection with COVID-19. KLM now operates one flight a week to Shanghai, which is operated with a Boeing 777-300 and makes a stop in Seoul (South Korea) on both outbound and inbound flights.

With the reopening of the Amsterdam-Shanghai route, KLM emphasizes the importance of the Chinese market in its network.

KLM complies with the strict requirements set by the Chinese government for the resumption of international flights. Passengers must complete a health declaration form online and that the temperature of passengers is checked.
