Dutch airline KLM announces welcome news. After the severe restrictions in aviation due to the Corona pandemic, the KLM flight network to Africa is back to 2019 levels. Even during the peak of the pandemic, KLM tried to maintain the network. So there were still flights to various destinations in Africa. However, the focus shifted from passenger to cargo flights.

There are now 11 routes to Africa in KLM’s network again, the same number as in 2019. However, there were two changes, but they were already determined before the outbreak of the pandemic. Luanda in Angola and Windhoek in Namibia are now no longer part of the network, but Zanzibar in Tanzania and Cairo in Egypt were already added in 2020. Furthermore, a twelfth airport is to be added to the Africa network this winter. From then on, there will also be KLM flights to Mombasa in Kenya.

Of course, the relevant entry regulations to the individual countries will still apply. In addition, KLM operates its flights with the highest standards of hygiene to ensure safe travel. For this, the airline was recently awarded the Diamond APEX status. Thus, the airline is now one of the leading contenders in terms of hygiene and health safety.
