KLM, which is a part of Air France KLM, will provide flights across the Atlantic Ocean three times per week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The capacity of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft operating the route, will carry up to 318 passengers.

The new route is part of KLM's plan to expand the airline's destinations in South America, which is intended to include a route to Ecuador and Chile.

KLM flew between the Netherlands and Colombia's capital from 1992 to 1995, but now it will include the route to Bogota and Cali, bringing the number of flights to 11 different destinations in Latin America.

With the opening of the new routes beginning March 31, 2015, the Air France KLM group will offer 10 flights per week while Air France will offer seven flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport to Bogota, and KLM will offer three from Amsterdam Schiphol airport to Bogota and Cali.
