ATLANTATrans-Atlantic partners Delta Air Lines and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines are launching flights with COVID tests from Atlanta to Amsterdam from Dec. 15. 
Delta and KLM have worked with the Dutch government, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to deliver a comprehensive COVID-19 testing program that will allow eligible customers to be exempt from quarantine.

Pieter Elbers, President & CEO KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, said:
“This is a very important and great step forward. Until an approved working vaccine is available worldwide, this testing program represents the first step towards the international travel industry’s recovery. I am grateful for the constructive collaboration with our partners Delta Air Lines and the Schiphol Group and to have the support of the Dutch government to make this unique COVID- free travel corridor trial possible."
The COVID-tested flights will operate four times per week from Atlanta to Amsterdam, with Delta and KLM operating two frequencies each. Only passengers with negative test results will be accepted on board. The flights will initially run for three weeks and, if successful, Delta and KLM hope to extend the program to other markets.#
