KLM Royal Dutch Airlines – starts new baggage policy from 22 April 2013.

KLM offers now to passengers, traveling trough Europe a new personal service.
KLM announced today a new approach (described  in the press message below) to traveling around Europe, starting from 22 April 2013.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will introduce more competitive prices to many destinations within Europe. Starting from 22 April 2013, KLM will reduce its prices till 99 Euro for 11 more European destinations, providing flights to 30 destinations in Europe on this price.
Additionally KLM will introduce a new policy for personalizing the prices, by excluding the ticket price from the price of the baggage. Starting from 23 April 2013, economy class passengers will pay 15 euro for checked luggage for the European destinations (if the luggage fee is paid in the same time with the issue of the ticket – the price for checked luggage at the airport will be 30 euro).
The regular clients of KLM, which will be or are part of the loyalty program Flying Blue, will receive a free option for a checked luggage. From this advantage will benefit also the corporative clients, members of the BlueBiz program or also passengers, which have flights with “full flexible” ticket fare.
This new business model started from KLM in whole Europe it is a response to the changes in the customer consume behavior:  a lot of the clients are flying without a checked luggage through the European routes. Moreover, most of the passages want to be able to personalize their travel, to have the option to choose a seat in the plane or to choose more space for the legs (Economy Comfort).
As far as the baggage transportation policy is concerned, please have in mind the following:
  • This new rules are valid only for the European flights and only in economy class. So a passage with a international flight destination, who is traveling in economy class of service, will be able to benefit from the current baggage regulations ( number of subjects, weight, luggage dimensions )
  • Members of the Flying Blue program, regardless the traveled class of service, will have one free piece of checked baggage.
All that you need to do is just to subscribe and you will receive a registration number, which you will be able to use every time you make reservation with KLM and not only ( Air France, Al Italia, Tarom, Aeroflot, Delta and others).
Below you will find the registration link:
- Passengers in class of service B and Y (economy flexible) will be able to get some free pieces of luggage.
We will inform you accordantly and with priority about all news, as soon as we get more information regarding this from the airline company.
