KLM flights from / to Romania started in 1965
On October 7, 2019, we celebrated 100 years of KLM. The centenary of the Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij (KLM) was also celebrated in Bucharest, in the presence of Thijs Komen - General Manager of Air France KLM for Central Europe, Alps and Balkans, Alexandru Dobrescu - Country Manager Romania and Razvan Radut - Sales Manager Air France - KLM Romania.
I was glad to be present at the anniversary of KLM, this being the first airline with which I flew outside the Romanian borders. Following the first flights on board the KLM aircraft, the idea of the site AirlinesTravel.ro appeared. Here, the Dutch airline has reached 100 for years, and AirlinesTravel.ro is in its 8 year online.
The presence of KLM in Romania
But let's go back to KLM and its operations in Romania. KLM started on the route Amsterdam - Bucharest on March 31, 1965. It has been 54 years and the Dutch carrier continues to operate 2 daily flights in the winter season and 3 daily flights in the summer season. Plus flights operated in partnership with TAROM.
Approximately 75% - 80% of Romanian passengers travel to intercontinental destinations, of which the most requested are America and Asia, with prices starting from 500 euros.
Happy Birthday, KLM!
