KLM Royal Dutch Airlines operated its first flight to the Polish city of Wrocław today on Monday, 6 May 2019. Wrocław is the fourth destination to be served by KLM in Poland. The flights will be operated daily using Embraer 175 equipment.
Wrocław lies in western Poland on the banks of the River Oder. Wrocław has a population of more than 600,000, making it the fourth-largest city in Poland. Wrocław is a lively university city with a flourishing business community. The market square is a real eye-catcher, boasting pastel-coloured buildings and lined with cosy cafés and eateries.
Shower of affection with ambassador
Launching the new route was fittingly celebrated with a shower of affection at Wrocław airport. The Dutch Ambassador to Poland, Ron van Dartel, and the CEO of Copernicus Airport Wrocław, Dariusz Kuś, attended the festive ceremony.
