KLM Boeing 777

Skyteam member KLM currently celebrates its 100th anniversary with a nice sale of nonstop roundtrips from its hub Amsterdam. One hundred destinations on five continents are discounted, starting with €300 roundtrips to Dubai. As common for KLM, all fares mentioned are light fares, meaning you’ll get complimentary board service, but have to add at least €80 to check a bag both ways.

Some of the most interesting fares are:

A century of KLM, cheap flights for everyone!

Search & Book

While running times may differ, most fares mentioned above will be available until October 11, 2019. Travel dates are scattered between November 2019 and June 2020, depending on destination and desired length of stay.

The easiest way to see tickets to which destinations are sold is KLM’s landing page. You may find it easier to first check availability on Google Flights (instructions). Before booking, you can compare prices with our flight search, though we recommend booking directly with the airline.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.


KLM issues most of these tickets in booking class X, severly limiting your earning oppourtinities.

Happy Birthday, KLM!
