Travelers from the Pacific Northwest will have a new option for reaching Europe this fall with the launch of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ direct service between Portland International Airport (PDX) and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS).

Starting October 27, 2024, KLM will offer a year-round connection between the two cities. KLM’s flight schedule matches seasonal demands. Flights will operate three times a week during the winter months, on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. To accommodate the anticipated rise in summer travel, KLM will increase the frequency to five times a week, adding service on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

This addition expands KLM’s North American network to 21 destinations and offers passengers a direct link between Portland and Amsterdam and the opportunity to connect seamlessly to KLM’s extensive European network and destinations beyond. The service will run on the Boeing 787-Dreamliner aircraft.

If you are considering booking a trip to the Netherlands’ capital, fall is a beautiful season to visit. Not only are there fewer tourists and more affordable accommodations, but it’s also visually stunning. Amsterdam is one of the leafiest cities in Europe, and come fall, the cobbled streets and canals are lined with golden trees. The cultural calendar is also packed with events, such as the five-day rave, Amsterdam Dance Event, and the annual Amsterdam Light Festival.
