Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM, or ‘Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij), is the national airline of the Netherlands. KLM is well known as a quality airline, and its aircrafts are equipped with many features. For example, if you’re flying Economy Class, you can opt for extra comfort (Economy Class Comfort). In addition, KLM offers a wide range of in-flight entertainment. KLM was founded in 1919 and is therefore the world’s oldest airline still operating under its original name. Since 2004, KLM cooperates with the major French company Air France.

If you travel with KLM, you needn’t get bored: more than 1000 hours of interactive entertainment is available on intercontinental flights, including movies, TV programs, CDs, language courses, audio books and games.

 

On almost all intercontinental flights, you have access to a personal interactive screen. In addition, more and more KLM airplanes are equipped with Wi-Fi (at this moment in Boeing 787 Dreamliners and 1 Boeing 777-300 aircraft). Moreover, KLM has the oldest in-flight magazine in the world: Holland Herald, also the largest English language magazine in the Netherlands.

KLM distinguishes three classes: Business Class, Economy Comfort class and Economy Class. Business class is divided into two different classes: Europe Business Class for short haul; and World Business Class for long haul.

Economy Comfort class offers additional legroom compared to the regular Economy Class seats; and the chairs can move back further. In addition, these chairs are located in the front half of Economy Class, so Economy Comfort class travellers can disembark sooner. On all Intercontinental Economy Class flights, a three course dinner is served

Intercontinental Business Class travellers enjoy luxury loungers (adjustable to 170-80 degrees, depending on the model) with massage option; and a personal entertainment system. In addition, you will get a delicious dinner, prepared by top chef Jacob Jan Boerma.
