KLM uk has struck back at Stansted-based rival Go by revealing the first phase of a revamp of operations at its London hub. The airline says it aims to tackle the low-fare division of British Airways head on, with an increase in frequencies to Edinburgh, Scotland, to seven services a day, pre-empting Go's launch of services to the Scottish city on 8 September. KLM uk says it will also undercut its lowest fare and offer a superior on-board service. John Grant, who heads the domestic business unit at the wholly owned division of Dutch carrier KLM, says more announcements will be made shortly with the aim of challenging Go and developing market share. These could include expansion of services to destinations such as Barcelona, Copenhagen and Milan.
