Amsterdam is till so far the only airport of it's size in Europe that still works with a single-terminal concept and it works great.
There are plans for expansion and eventually a second terminal on the north-side of runway 09-27 (where the big car-park is at this moment) but these plans are not firm at this moment.

Amsterdam Airlines - Holland's Newest Airlines

Today Amsterdam Airlines officially started. (2 months later then expected)

Amsterdam Airlines starts with 1 airplane, an Airbus A320. In 2009 they want to have 2 more planes from the same type. There are currently working 45 people with AA. The AA is going to work toghether with AirVallee and wants to have flights with Italy and for example the Canary Islands. The home base of Amsterdam Airlines is Amsterdam (offcorse :P)

I love the colors but seeing the "AA" makes me think of American Airlines.

^And Anonymous Alcoholists :P

@GlasgowMan - Several newspapers say charter flights. But temporary. They are going to do that for the Italian company AirVallee. I don't know about the flights. I read something about Italy and Canary Islands.

They are the newest Airline of the Netherlands, not Holland's newest airline! But it is nice to see them start operations with this beautiful A320!

It is also Holland's newest airline, it is a company based in on Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, which is in North-Holland. But I get your point.

Doing a quick search on Wikipedia I didn't realize that Holland was a part of the Netherlands and Amsterdam was in Holland.

Maybe that's why Transavia and Martinair used to be called Transavia Holland and Martinair Holland.

KLM to raise capacity on KL-Amsterdam route
By Kang Siew Li Published: 2008/09/15 BusinessTimes

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will reduce the number of business class seats to 35 and increase economy seats to 292 on the 777-200 and 390 on the 777W

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines said it will switch to use the larger Boeing 777 from the 747-400 on its Amsterdam-Kuala Lumpur-Jakarta route beginning April 2009.

"Capacity will be increased on the service between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur by means of larger equipment. The flights will be carried out in a mix of 777-200 and 777W," Air France-KLM country manager for Malaysia, Estee Ng, told Business Times in Jakarta last week.

The move will see the number of business class seats reduced to 35 from 42 and economy seats increased to 292 on the 777-200 and 390 on the 777W, from 278.

"This is good for our overall product because operational-wise, the 777's performance is much better. The only setback is that the 777 takes less cargo than the 747-400. For that, we may have to operate more freighter flights between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur as Malaysia is an important market for KLM Cargo," said Ng.

She added that KLM has no immediate plans to increase its daily frequencies between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur as it also code-shares on Malaysia Airlines' daily flights between the two cities.

"Don't forget we also offer daily non-stop flights to Europe out of Singapore under both the KLM and Air France brands. In fact, we are replacing the 777 with the new Airbus 380 on our daily (Air France) flights between Singapore and Paris in November next year. The A380's introduction will increase our current seat capacity by three times.

"This is in addition of our daily (KLM) flights between Singapore and Amsterdam ," she said.

In May 2004, KLM merged with Air France, resulting in the creation of the world's largest airline group by revenue.

Air France-KLM saw its August 2008 passenger load factor for Asia drop by four percentage points to 85.8 per cent than that in August 2007 on 7.1 per cent higher capacity.

"Load factor for the first eight months of 2008 declined 2.3 per cent to 85.1 per cent," said Ng, adding that the load factor reductions are likely to persist for the remaining months as more corporates look to reduce their travel spend due to the US subprime mortgage fallout.

Meanwhile, Ng said KLM has completed the scheduled upgrading of its business class seats in all its 747-400s, which includes 176 degrees lie-flat seats, superior in-flight service and one of the industry's most advanced personal entertainment systems. These new seats are available on its flights from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur and onwards to Jakarta .

"We started the upgrading exercise two years ago. Today, wherever our passengers fly, they can be assured of the same product," she said.

She added that the airline is now embarking on an upgrade programme for its economy class seats of its 747-400 fleet, which will see the aircraft being retrofitted with personal entertainment systems.

"This exercise will take another two to three years to complete. However, the Malaysian market does not have to wait so long (to enjoy the new product) because we are replacing the aircraft (with the new 777) next year," she said.
