2019, the year of the century for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines

1 century, 10 decades, 100 years

KLM first spread its wings on 7 October 1919 and that means it celebrated its hundredth anniversary during 2019, making it the world’s oldest airline operating under its original name. 

As usual, the carrier unveiled a new Delftware miniature house on its birthday. Huis ten Bosch Palace in The Hague, the home of Dutch King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima, and their three daughters was chosen and is already a collector's piece. 

That was just one of a number of special celebration the airline had for its 100th birthday.  Take a look at the following video for more on KLM in 2019.

Want a peek inside the entire KLM fleet?

See all KLM's planes without taking a single step onboard? 
KLM’s Digital Studio photographed the entire fleet on the inside using a 360-degree camera. They created a virtual fleet. That’s extremely handy for the cleaning crews so they can see the inside of the aircraft before starting their work. But it’s also a useful way to train crew members. And don’t forget the passengers and aircraft fans, because now you can also have a look onboard and see the places you normally don’t get to see.
