Flying with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines vs the Fokker Spin
If you are flying to Europe, Africa, or the Middle East, or want to get to Amsterdam on a non-stop flight, there’s no better way to get there than by flying with one of the world’s oldest and most respected airlines, KLM.
So just who/what are they?
KLM: KLM is a Dutch-based airline company that offers flights around the globe with numerous amenities designed specifically for passenger comfort.
What’s the quality of the flight?
KLM: As mentioned, KLM planes are designed for passenger comfort and ease-of-use: They feature a different pressurization to make the cabin experience more comfortable, their overhead bins are designed to take away the frustration of stowing your luggage, and their seats lay back to nearly 180 degrees.
How old is it?
KLM: KLM is 99 years old as of 2018! That makes it the oldest airline in the industry to have retained its original name.
Who’s flying this thing?
KLM: Trained pilots and co-pilots. BUT, every now and again, the Dutch King himself, Willem-Alexander, comes on to co-pilot a flight! It’s never announced to the passengers – as he likes to keep his hobby a secret – but you might be in for a fun royal treat.
Can they fly directly from Amsterdam to Alberta?
KLM: Absolutely. Whether you’re flying non-stop from Calgary or Edmonton, you can get to Amsterdam in less than nine hours and only stow your luggage once.
Where do they fly?
KLM: All over the world, but for Albertan’s specifically, there are few better ways to fly into Africa, the Middle East, or Europe at large than by transferring via KLM through Amsterdam. It’s so close to the airport, you can arrive, get through security, and get a train to Amsterdam in twenty minutes.
