KLM Celebrates 100 Years Of Flying The World


KLM Royal Dutch Airlines are celebrating 100 years of travel, flights and adventure! And to make it extra special, they’re offering amazing flight deals to London, Dublin, Amsterdam and many other exciting destinations that you don’t want to miss. 

Celebrate 100 Years With KLM

2019 is a big year for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. This year, the airline celebrates a century as one of the leading brands in the international aviation industry. Founded on 07 October 1919, KLM is the world’s oldest operating airline still flying under its original name.

KLM’s journey into South Africa started 81 years ago, when KLM first took off from Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport for Johannesburg in 1938. The journey took a staggering three days to complete.

Today, KLM remains one of the most efficient ways to fly from South Africa to Northern Europe and beyond. KLM now has a daily flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg and Cape Town operated with a Boeing 777 aircraft.

KLM is immensely proud of the accomplishments they have achieved in the past and are now setting their sights on the next 100 years.

In celebration of this incredible milestone, KLM have some amazing deals to Europe, with departures from Johannesburg and Cape Town. Fares start from R7 765*, all inclusive and return. Selling until 18 October 2019, for travel until 19 June 2020. Conditions apply.

Here’s to creating even more memorable moments with KLM.
