Where Will KLM’s A321neo Fly?

KLM A321neo PH-AXA

The first Airbus A321neo for KLM emerged from the paint shop in Hamburg this week, as seen here.

The aircraft is part of an order for the type by the Air France-KLM group, with the first examples having already been delivered to member airline Transavia.

KLM itself will receive 9 of the aircraft, starting with this aircraft which will become PH-AXA (msn 11895). It is set to enter service in September, with additional aircraft to be delivered over the next year.

The airline plans to use the fleet on its European scheduled services initially, with no indication of any long-haul use.

It marks the first time the Airbus A320 family has been flown by KLM, which has primarily used Boeing 737 Classic and Next Generation types (as well as Embraer 190/E2) for European services over the past 30 years.

According to Aeroroutes, the initial routes to be flown by KLM’s Airbus A321neo are as follows:

  • Amsterdam – Berlin (from 16 September 2024)
  • Amsterdam – Copenhagen (from 16 September 2024)
  • Amsterdam – Paris Charles de Gaulle (from 7 October 2024)
  • Amsterdam – Prague (from 7 Octobber 2024)
  • Amsterdam – Stockholm Arlanda (from 16 September 2024)
  • Amsterdam – Vienna (from 12 October 2024)


In addition to the A321neo, KLM will begin taking delivery of A320neo aircraft in the near future. The addition of these types will begin to replace the 737 NG fleet.
