KLM wades into ‘The Battle of the Skies’ for passengers out of Entebbe


The present fare and service offensive by Brussels Airlines and announcements by Gulf Airlines like Qatar Airways and Emirates of bagging new global awards chasing each other have now also brought KLM on to the scene, making their own case to their frequent travelers why to fly with them.

The introduction of an online Fare Finder is aimed to assist clients booking on the net to get the best possible deals while fares to the United States have been set from 1.357 US Dollars, inclusive of an ever growing tax and fee burden, to New York while Washington DC and Boston sell from 1.407 US Dollars and Chicago from 1.507 US Dollars return.

At the same time are seats in the Economy Comfort section selling for a one off surcharge of 80 Euros, strangely not expressed in UD Dollars which remain the common foreign currency in Uganda, for a one way trip between Entebbe and Amsterdam, giving passengers that crucial extra legroom, especially needed on overnight flights. On line check in is now also possible from 30 hours prior to departure which allows for printing of boarding passes and the simple baggage drop off at a special counter in Entebbe, bypassing check in queues, securing a choice seat and allowing passengers to appears at the airport at their own good time.
KLM now flies 6 times a week from Amsterdam via Kigali to Entebbe, the most flights of any European airline, and on Tuesdays still offers the option to fly via Nairobi in partnership with Kenya Airways, from where the two airlines offer double daily services.
