Naples is calling...........KLM gear up for a new service to the the port city of the Neapolitan Riviera

KLM, the Royal Dutch Airline, will be starting a brand new service to the heart of the Neapolitan Riviera, the port city of Naples.

This vibrant and beautiful Italian port city will be KLM's tenth destination in Italy, which we will be operated on a seasonal basis during the summer months. The airline will be operating the route daily during July and August with Boeing 737-700/800 aircraft. For the rest of the season, the airline will only fly there at the weekend.

Reduce plastic waste in Italian waters........

KLM celebrated the start of the new route with the Major and Joost Flamand in attendance representing the Dutch embassy in Naples. Flamand had the honour of unveiling a “sea bin” sponsored by KLM. The floating rubbish bin will remove plastic from the bay of Naples. KLM is sponsoring five sea bins, each of which will collect about 1.5 kilos of plastic each day, including microplastics from 2 to 5 mm in diameter and microfibres starting from 0.3 mm. This will work out to about five hundred kilos of plastic each year. Right now, there are about two hundred sea bins around the world, forty of which are in Italy. The sea bins are part of the PlasticLess project, an initiative of the LifeGate organisation.
