KLM set to increase flights between YYC & AMS for Summer 2012

KLM has updated their summer 2012 schedule (per Airline Route Updates) and it looks like KLM is inching its way closer to daily service on the Calgary-Amsterdam route as the schedule shows service 6 times weekly up from 5 seen this summer. The extra flight takes effect on July 6, 2012. The schedule also shows that the service reverts back to an A330-200 which replaces the MD-11 being used currently. Please note that this increased service may change seeing that it is nearly a year away and is definitely not set in stone (KLM has done this in previous years)
