Air France – KLM has been closely working with both the Dutch and French Ministry Foreign Affairs to repatriate our Dutch, French citizens and European nationals.

Air France – KLM with Dutch and French Embassies in South Africa have been working extensively to organize repatriation flights, which will enable more than 1,000 Dutch and 250 French nationals to return home. These flights will also be open to citizens from other European Union member states.

Pending final flights authorizations, KLM will operate 5 consecutive flights, the coming week, from Amsterdam to South Africa (3 flights to Cape Town and 2 flights to Johannesburg) with a technical stop in La Reunion (France).
As these flights are governmental flights, they will not be open for sale through our traditional direct and indirect, online and offline channels.

These flights are reserved to non-South African residents stranded in South Africa, who should make themselves known by their Embassy in South Africa.

Dutch nationals can reach their Embassy at:
Embassy: +27 12 425 4500
Cape Town Consulate: +27 21 421 5660
