KLM Royal Dutch Airlines on 7 October celebrated its 95th anniversary with the unveiling of a special “KLM 95 years” logo on one of its MD-11 aircraft (pictured) and the laying of the first stone for a new KLM lounge at Amsterdam Schiphol.

The “95” logo will also, for the duration of KLM’s anniversary, appear on one aircraft of each type in the carrier’s intercontinental fleet, where passengers flying business class during the anniversary year will receive an exclusive on-board gift of a new KLM Delftware miniature house created for the occasion.

Chief executive Camiel Eurlings, who was joined by his Schiphol group counterpart Jos Nijhuis for the ceremonies, said: “Thanks to the efforts, expertise, and energy of our 33,000 employees, KLM is now the world’s oldest airline still operating under its original name, and it is important that we celebrate this landmark.

“KLM is rooted in Dutch society and we all have KLM-blue blood running through our veins – we look forward to the years to come with confidence.”
