KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has announced the launch of a new, daily route to Poland, which will be available from 30 October 2022. Katowice is the sixth city in Poland – following Warsaw, Kraków, Wrocław, Gdańsk and Poznań – from which KLM will offer direct flights to the Netherlands.

From 30 October 2022, KLM will offer daily flights (7 flights weekly) on a new route: Amsterdam (Schiphol) – Katowice Airport – Amsterdam (Schiphol). The aircraft will take off from Katowice Wojciech Korfanty Airport (Pyrzowice) at 16:50, and land in Amsterdam-Schiphol at 18:50. Return flights to Poland are scheduled to take place at the following times: take off from Amsterdam at 14:20 and arrival at Katowice at 16:10.*

"We are immensely happy with KLM's decision to launch a new, sixth route from Poland to the Netherlands. The global flights offer will soon be joined by Katowice, the heart of Silesia and a very important economic centre on a national scale, where we see great potential primarily due to business traffic. Poland is a special market for KLM, and the initiated strategy of launching routes from regional airports has thus far done well. Following the success of Poznań, Wrocław, Kraków and Gdańsk, and after a long-time presence in Warsaw, it's time for the next big city: Katowice. We hope that dialy flights will help in business trips, and that tourists from Silesia will gain new possibilities offered by the rich KLM network; flights to the Netherlands, and from there – through the hub in Amsterdam – to numerous cities on 5 continents," said Frantisek Siling, General Sales Manager of Air France and KLM in Poland.

"KLM's decision to launch the Amsterdam – Katowice route is the result of consistent talks, which were held during the pandemic, a very difficult time for the aviation industry. I''m happy that KLM has acknowledged the potential of Katowice Airport and the Silesian Voivodeship and decided to launch daily flights between our airport and one of the biggest hub airports in Europe. Thanks to this route, passengers will gain a quick and comfortable access to the rich network of long-haul flights offered by KLM from Amsterdam. I believe it is the beginning of a good and long collaboration," said Artur Tomasik, the President of the Board of The Upper Silesian Aviation Group (GTL SA), the company managing Katowice Wojciech Korfanty Airport.
