A KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Airbus A330-200 operating flight KL523 touched down 30 minutes early at 20.57L at Harare International Airport this evening, signifying the resumption of services to Amsterdam, cancelled 13 years ago.


The flight is Harare's only current direct flight to Europe after Air Zimbabwe (UM) ceased international operations in May this year. The last European carrier to serve Harare, British Airways (BA), dropped its London Heathrow - Harare route in 2007.

Routed Amsterdam - Harare - Lusaka - Amsterdam, the 24 hour round trip operates on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, departing from Schiphol at 10.20 hrs and arriving in Harare on the same day at 21.25 hrs. The return leg of the circle trip has the same number, KL523, leaving Harare at 22.30 hrs the same day, with an intermediate landing in Lusaka. The flight arrives in Amsterdam the following morning at 10.20 hrs.
