* From the 22nd April 2013, KLM are introducing a fee for checking in a bag. You can check in a suitcase at a fee of EUR 15 (one way) if arranged prior to your arrival at the airport. The airport fee will be EUR 30 (one way). However, Scenic Tours has been working hard with KLM to find a solution that will mean our guests do not have to pay this additional luggage fee. By spending a couple of minutes enrolling in their frequent flyer programme ‘Flying Blue’ you can avoid paying these additional fees (and you’ll earn Miles too!)
