We are KLM. Also known as the Royal Dutch Airlines. We’re from the land of windmills, cheese and Vincent van Gogh and live at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, an international hub with nice restaurants, lots of shops and visitors from all over the world.
We were born in 1919 and actually just had the birthday bash for our 95th birthday. We’ve been traveling the world for as long as we can remember. Our biggest passion is meeting new people and discovering different cultures. Our first flight in 1920 took us to Jakarta and we’ve been roaming the planet ever since. Nowadays we fly to hundreds of destinations all over the world. We love Europe, Africa and the Caribbean, but also enjoy visiting America and Asia at least once a day.
Other stuff we love? Comfort, courtesy, art, good food, smart solutions, Dutch design and the color blue. But surely you will discover all that once you stay at our place for the night.
We welcome travellers from anywhere to make our home theirs!
