With the opening of borders and lifting the ban on passenger flights, airlines are gradually resuming operations, especially in Europe. After several months of crisis caused by COVID-19, KLM has included Poland again in its flight schedule. On June 29, Dutch airlines returned, among others, to Kraków.
Due to the dynamically changing situation regarding the lifting of admission restrictions by individual countries, KLM publishes its flight schedules for shorter periods. The resumption of air traffic depends strictly on the decision of the authorities of individual countries and the current level of virus threat, as well as the newly forming demand, which is why flight schedules may change. Before traveling, KLM encourages its customers to check the airline’s website – klm.pl, and to contact the competent authorities in order to obtain information on travel formalities and restrictions.
