Trinidad and Tobago is welcoming KLM Royal Dutch Airlines back after a 20-year absence. It couldn’t have come at a better time for the country’s weakened tourism industry.
The airline is now operating flights between Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Piarco International Airport in Trinidad.
KLM is currently operating three weekly flights, on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, from the Netherlands to Trinidad and Tobago, with a layover in Barbados.
T&T Tourism Minister Randall Mitchell said: “This is a new market for Trinidad and we also intend to capitalise on the connections that the Schiphol Hub offers. This flight has opened numerous possibilities for targeting other non-traditional source markets. Initial data shows that people are not only coming from Amsterdam but from Asia and other parts of Europe.”
