KLM and Corendon cooperate on direct flights to Sri Lanka

Summary

KLM and Corendon have agreed that KLM will, twice a week, reserve seat capacity for Corendon customers on its flights to Colombo, Sri Lanka. KLM will begin operating twice-weekly direct service to Colombo at the end of October, using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

KLM continually invests in its network to offer customers an ever-broader range of destinations. Having introduced a record number of new destinations in the summer of 2016, KLM will add two further destinations to its network this winter: Colombo and Miami
Harm Kreulen, Air France-KLM Senior Vice President Benelux
Sri Lanka is a perfect addition to our range of distant destinations. It is the ideal place for a tour in combination with a beach holiday, with its impressive landscape, culture and magnificent beaches. Through our partnership with KLM, we can now offer our customers direct flights to this beautiful island. That makes our latest Corendon destination unique!
Atilay Uslu from Corendon

Until now, Colombo was not served directly from the Netherlands. This new agreement gives Corendon guaranteed capacity with KLM, which will be used for passengers booking package trips to Sri Lanka.
