KLM Royal Dutch Airlines have returned to Barbados after 83 years, landing at the Grantley Adams International Airport on October 17, 2021 to an honorary water salute. The airline was the first commercial airline to arrive at the Seawell Airport in Barbados on October 19, 1938. Now it makes history yet again with a sold-out flight from Amsterdam to Barbados.

The KLM flight crew and passengers were greeted by the Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Senator the Hon. Lisa Cummins; Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Cor Stouten; Honorary Consul of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Anthony Gittens; BTMI’s Interim Head of Global Markets, Cheryl Carter; and Claude Sarre, General Manager, Caribbean for KLM. Also present on the tarmac was the Zouave Band of the Barbados Defense Force.

Creating greater access and seamless connectivity to and from major European countries and regions, the non-stop flight from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) to Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI) will operate three days a week Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Departing Amsterdam at 12:25 p.m. CET and arriving at BGI 4:45 p.m. AST, the service will run until March 31st, 2022.
