Happy birthday - Gelukkige verjaardag KLM !

Founded on 7 October 1919 in The Hague, the Netherlands, KLM is today celebrating its 95th anniversary, making it the oldest airline in the worlds, still operating under its original name. Over the years ahead, its ambition is to be stronger and more agile than ever, with maximum focus on its passengers.

To celebrate its 95th anniversary, the company has inaugurated the exhibition "A journey through 95 years of KLM" retracing the Company's rich history at the Jan Van Der Togt Museum in Amstelveen.

In addition, several KLM aircraft will be sporting a special livery with the 95th anniversary logo. The company is also officially starting work on its new lounge at Amsterdam-Schiphol.

To celebrate its anniversary, KLM is also adding to its collection its 95th miniature Delft reproduction of a typically Dutch house, filled with genuine Dutch gin and served on board in World Business Class since the fifties.



Over a 24 hour period, KLM is celebrating this anniversary with exceptional commercial offers. On Facebook and Twitter, customers will be able to win a trip to Amsterdam, the city where it all began, along with many other surprises that will be revealed during the day.

In 2019, the Company will celebrate its 100th anniversary, making it the only airline in the world to reach this age without ever changing its name since its creation.



The company's integration with Air France 10 years ago is a key element in KLM's dynamic success story. As part of a complementary group, KLM can confidently pursue its adventure, one of the most exciting sagas in the world of air transport.
