KLM has increased the number of flights between Newcastle and its Amsterdam headquarters to four per day.
The new schedule adds 28 weekly flights to Schiphol, allowing passengers to connect to the airline’s global network.
The extra flights complement sibling carrier Air France’s 12 weekly flights to Paris.
Leon McQuaid, the head of aviation development at Newcastle Airport, said: “KLM is a very important and long-standing airline partner of ours, and we welcome the confidence the airline has shown by further investing in the region.
“As we move from 2021 and into 2022, the added capacity to the schedule will not only improve the region’s connectivity to Amsterdam but also throughout the world thanks to KLM’s wider global network.”
Fahmi Mahjoub, the new UK and Ireland general manager of Air France and KLM, added: “With the addition of the extra service, KLM is pushing its commitment to passengers in Newcastle and the rest of the region even further.
“While the aviation industry has had to adapt to challenges faced over the past 20 months and we continue to monitor the situation, we are pleased to be in a position where we can increase the number of flights we are offering.
“With our flexible booking policy, allowing customers to change their flights or obtain a full refund at any time before departure, travellers can feel confident booking with KLM.
“As we approach the festive season, the additional service gives even more options for our customers to travel and reunite with their loved ones.”
