We are pleased to inform you that KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has been around for 98 years and is, in fact, the oldest international airline still flying under its original name. To add to this already esteemed reputation, Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines joined forces in May 2004, making them the largest European airline group, operating under the KLM Air France name.
KLM already has a prominent social media presence encouraging its customers to interact with the brand as often as they need. This is making KLM’s dream of becoming the most customer centric, innovative and efficient European network carrier a very achievable goal. By merging with Air France, it has come to occupy a leading position in the international airline industry.
KLM is also committed to sustainable travel, with their work towards actively reducing CO2 emissions awarding the airline “best-in-class” status among all large international airlines for fuel efficiency.
At Travelstart, we are proud to associate our brand with this standard of operation, hence why we have made it our duty to source the best KLM flight prices and deals.
