The new air route of Xiamen-Amsterdam was launched on 26, July. It is also the first intercontinental route operated by Xiamen Airlines.
Xiamen Airlines will operate the new route, flight numbers MF811 and MF812, with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The flight departs Xiamen at 11:50 p.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, and arrives at Amsterdam's Schiphol at 5:45 a.m. the next day with duration of 11 hours and 55 minutes.
The new route complements KLM Royal Dutch Airlines' existing Xiamen-Amsterdam route, also on a three-times-a-week schedule, which means that starting from July 26, there will be six direct flights between Xiamen and Amsterdam weekly.
