During the Second World War, most KLM aircraft were used for military purposes, but part of the fleet continued to carry passengers. After the end of the war, the airline immediately began to restore its flights and routes. In the post-war years, the Dutch government expressed its desire to acquire a controlling stake in the airline, thereby making it the national air carrier.

In 1950 the company carried out transportation of more than 350 thousand. Passengers. Continues to expand the route network, add new destinations in North America.

In the 1960s - 1970s, the company developed dynamically: it introduced a new four-engine turboprop aircraft to some European and Middle Eastern routes, opened new terminals in the buildings of the base airport, and combined passenger and cargo air transportation.

Airlines of the World and Russian ...

I lost baggage statement filled in Luanda 28.01.2017 years, LADKL10396,

I need to change the departure date on my ticket

Aircraft of this airline are in perfect order. All new upholstery on the seats, interior is very nice and even third-class feel human, after all staff is trained to carry out your requests at the slightest nod. Good luck and continued success in the development.

I advise you to fly at least once according to flight. When even traveled to distant lands a few hours, you know how good that people learned how to build airplanes, and when convinced of the impeccable service at this international flight, so happy that there is finally a company that meets all your requirements.

The company did not like at all. Irresponsible people who do not show any concern for passengers! Prior to this, I tried not to write reviews about the airlines I flew on, but there was already a painful topic. Flight attendants ham, who still need to look. They are negligent to their direct duties. Stewardesses did not even offer a glass of water, not to mention food. The cabin is awful, everything falls apart literally in the hands. Never again will I go with this firm. If they have everything in the cabin so old and not well-groomed, who can give a guarantee that the assembly of the aircraft is performed qualitatively ?!

The plane is small but neat. The only thing that upset is something that the staff seems does not know English.

Before going in flight tried to gather as much feedback as possible about the different airlines to choose the safety and quality of the carrier, however, given that the means I'm very limited, fixed his eyes on the three core businesses. The main role in the selection of this airline was played by the almost complete absence of negative reviews. No problems took place not only registration but also received a remarkable luggage after the flight, even despite the fact that we are more than half an hour circling in the sky, waiting for permission to land, the airline disheartening. Now I advise her to all friends.

The direction of the Moscow-Amsterdam-Guayaquil, business V777-200 and 737-V800. I booked tickets on the site, back on it I flew to Air France. Without any special features, everything is fine. Business in a small - like many European airlines: everything, as in the economy, but two by three places. To sit for three hours is uncomfortable, but the food is normal. On the big one, almost twelve hours before Quito. The plane caught up with the old chairs, but they are spacious and comfortable to sleep on. Flight attendants, friendly and adequate. We flew beautifully, although a long time and a little chattered over the ocean. In Quito, the crew changed. Flight attendants said goodbye to us, as if we were good friends. With the new staff, too, quickly found a contact. The remaining two hours of stay in the plane (1 hour in Quito's parking and an hour in the air) was all excellent.
Himself with the airline KLM flew more than once (although the flights were different). But it was all the same cozy. No problems with the purchase of tickets on their official website, registration and luggage. You can reserve seats in the salon when you buy tickets (and you can still change the ticket before departure). We can not say that the food is straight it is very good, but it was at a decent level (though I can not remember exactly what I was fed). KLM for many destinations in America, in my opinion, is the best option for stability, reliability and presentability. Although the choice itself is small. Usually there are no more than two European carriers available for transfer to many of the mountains of Central and South America. I recommend. Moreover, on B777 KLM plan to change seats in the business class to more convenient and modern, 2-2-2 replaced by 2-3-2. This is especially important for long flights over 11-12 hours.
KLM - worth the airline, so you can safely rely on it.
