COVID-19 stopped aviation world in Spring 2020, but now for the summer the situation looks better with most of the countries loosening their lockdowns.
Therefore, Dutch carrier KLM plans to operate 95% of its European network and serve 80% of intercontinental destinations by August.
In July, KLM will resume 80% of its European network and return to 75% of long-haul destinations, albeit with fewer frequencies than before the Covid-19 pandemic.
”KLM has opted to restart as many destinations as possible first, in order to offer customers a wide choice and then to increase frequencies and capacity,” states the airline.
KLM plans to operate 11,000 European and 2,100 long-haul flights in August, just over half the capacity it deployed in August 2019.
“The recovery has therefore started cautiously, but the level of 2019 is far from being approached,” says the carrier.
Finally some positive news in the middle of COVID-19 aviation crisis. Hopefully, more and more carriers can start restoring their operations.
