We’re honoured to have Air France and KLM as this month’s airline partners!
100 years of flying
Celebrating its 100th birthday this year, KLM has been renowned throughout its history for being a pioneer in the aviation industry. Today, it’s not only known as the oldest airline in the world operating under the same name, it’s also recognised for its extensive network of destinations, innovation and its leading position in the industry for its environmental consciousness. As a testament to the active steps it has taken towards reducing the effect of aviation on the planet, the Air France-KLM group were recently awarded the number one position at the top of the Dow Jones sustainability index.
Reach the corners of Africa
Thanks to its partnership with Air France and Kenya Airways, KLM passengers can reach over 40 destinations in Africa, including Johannesburg, Lagos, and Nairobi, via Paris and Amsterdam. Anybody travelling from the UK can choose to depart from one of 18 airports* and fly via one of our award-winning hubs: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol or Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

A better and more environmentally friendly fleet
This year, KLM was the first European airline to take delivery of the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner – an aircraft that heralded a new era of flying for both KLM customers and crew.
Once on board, passengers are able to enjoy many benefits that are unique to the Dreamliner experience. The larger windows let in more natural light during daylight hours and provide all passengers with an enhanced view. The LED lighting in the aircraft allows for better choice in creating a relaxing environment, even helping you to transition through time zones. A more pleasant cabin pressure allows your body to absorb a greater amount of oxygen into the blood, resulting in an improved feeling of well-being.
The detailed touch of top Dutch designer Hella Jongerius gives the hi-tech world of aviation a warm and ‘feel-at-home’ ambiance in World Business Class, and a fresh and modern look in Economy Class. No matter which cabin you are in, you will have the opportunity to surf the internet with on-board WiFi, allowing you to stay in touch with friends and family. Passengers can get full access to the internet by purchasing a WiFi pass through the KLM portal, accessible during your flight.
What’s more, the aircraft is one of most environmentally friendly designs ever created. The engines and other improvements enable the Dreamliner to fly further, faster, cleaner, quieter and more efficiently. Together with KLM’s efforts to reduce weight, fly fuel-efficiently and use sustainable biofuel, this airplane provides an important contribution to KLM’s sustainability goals.
