Dutch airline KLM has announced plans to introduce more flights from Amsterdam to the island of Aruba from the end of October this year.

Holidaymakers planning a trip to the Caribbean island can take advantage of the new service from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The airline will increase the number of weekly flights from two to five.

Aruba is a popular destination among British travellers, and a rise in the frequency of flights to the island is expected to further boost the demand as well as lead to an increase in the number of people taking out travel insurance.

British tourists can take KLM flights from a number of locations in the UK - including London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow - to reach Amsterdam.

Joanna Walding, the Aruba Tourism Authority's UK director, said: "Aruba is one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Caribbean for British holidaymakers.

"With KLM's increased service this winter, the island is becoming more accessible than ever - with temperatures rarely dipping below 28C, Aruba is the perfect destination for some winter sun."
