KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Flights
Cheap KLM Flights
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines was once the national carrier of the Netherlands and is now a subsidiary of the massive Air France-KLM parent company. While the headquarters of Air France-KLM are at Air France’s base of Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, the KLM brand operates out of its headquarters at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. The airline was founded in 1919, and is the world’s oldest airline still using its original name.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (which includes flights maintained under the name of KLM Asia, which is registered in Taiwan) flies to nearly 180 destinations worldwide on the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America as well as Aruba and the Dutch Antilles in the Caribbean.
After Air France took over KLM in 2004, the merger created the third-largest airline company in the world in terms of passenger traffic. Air France-KLM is an incorporated company in France. While the two airlines are linked now by a parent company, each continues to operate under their respective individual names.
In addition to the link with Air France, KLM also has had a strong link with Northwest Airlines since acquiring 20% of Northwest in 1989. This historical bond between KLM and Northwest doesn’t appear to be affected by the mroe recent merger with Air France.
KLM is part of the SkyTeam airline alliance.
