KLM welcomes this decision and confirms that this updated regulation enables KLM to operate all passenger flights from South Africa to Amsterdam from 23 December 2020 and onwards as initially planned.
Passengers that have been rebooked due to the travel ban announced earlier by the Dutch government on the 21st of December, can either keep their current booking or request to their travel agent or KLM directly to be rebooked on one of the KLM flights that have been reinstated. Travellers will need to adhere to the requirement of presenting a negative PCR test certificate, which must be no older than 72 hours before arrival in the Netherlands.
Flights from the Netherlands to South Africa were unaffected by the travel ban or the new regulations and remain operational.
KLM flies daily between Johannesburg and Amsterdam and six times per week between Cape Town and Amsterdam.
