KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
KLM was established for Holland and its former colonies on 7 October 1919. Today, KLM is not just Holland’s best-known airline, but it is also the oldest existing airline still operating under its original name. Since a merger in 2004, KLM has been a part of the AIR FRANCE KLM group.
On board, you will be attended to by hosts and hostesses whose sole aim is to make sure that your flight is pleasant and comfortable all the way through. KLM collaborates with Dutch chefs and designers for the creation of the meals served and crockery used on board. In other words, your holiday starts the moment you board the plane.
No need to be bored while up in the air either: you can always read the Holland Herald, KLM’s own magazine, which contains plenty of interesting and varied (travel) inspiration. You also have access to a personal entertainment system offering a choice of movies, TV shows, music CDs and radio channels.
