Flights on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will run three times a week, on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
Amsterdam is known for its canals, art galleries, the Van Gogh Museum, cycling culture, the Anne Frank House, tulips, and coffee shops (that also serve marijuana).
With the new service, Austin becomes the 19th North American city served by KLM. The company planned to start the flights in May 2020, but postponed the launch due to the pandemic.
“We look forward to connecting Austin to our global network via Schiphol and providing Europeans direct access to the dynamic city of Austin with its vibrant culture and robust tech industry,” Eric Caron, senior vice president and general manager of North America for Air France-KLM said in a press release.
Passengers flying from Austin can connect to more than 60 destinations across Europe, Africa, and India via Amsterdam Schiphol.
