PV Magazine reports that the daily bus services from KLM to Schiphol have been fully climate-neutral since 10 July. From that date, the buses will run on advanced biofuel (HVO). This fuel is made from 100% certified waste and residual flows, resulting in a CO2 reduction of 577 tons. This sustainable step is carried out in collaboration with partners GoodFuels and Vissers Energy Group. Last year scCoach operator Jan de Wit in Haarlem also largely switched to HVO.

KLM, Munckhof, GoodFuels and Vissers Energy Group together ensure that 1 million kilometers are driven climate-neutral every year. The fuel used from now on is a complete diesel substitute and is made from vegetable waste oils. These oils would normally end up in the waste circuit, but now they are made of high-quality diesel. In addition to its sustainable characteristics, the fuel is also technically better than regular diesel.

Three KLM buses run through the Netherlands every day. KLM travelers can travel from Maastricht, Maastricht Aachen Airport and Eindhoven Airport to Schiphol for free. Also from Nijmegen and Arnhem a bus runs several times a day to Schiphol and Venlo will be added from 1 September. A third route has been added to the network since 1 July. From that date, the KLM Bus also runs from Enschede, Hengelo and Apeldoorn to Schiphol and back.

By using the KLM Bus, travelers save costs for a train ticket or fuel for the car and associated parking costs. Travelers can also use free Wi-Fi on the bus. Coffee, tea, water and the KLM magazine Holland Herald complete the trip. In the unlikely event that the bus is delayed on the way, KLM will rebook travelers free of charge.
