The end of the Fokker era

For decades, KLM and Fokker had a very close relationship. Since 1920, KLM has flown many different models of this Dutch aircraft manufacturer. On 30 October 2017 it was the end of an era: that Sunday morning the four last Fokker 70 aircraft in our fleet departed on their final flight to London. With their retirement we say a final goodbye to Dutch-manufactured aircraft.

The Fokker 70 was a beloved member of the KLM fleet, but increasing maintenance costs made their replacement inevitable. Fokkers were especially popular in areas with poorly maintained runways, and both passengers and crew appreciated their cosy and comfortable interior. In 2008, KLM gradually began to replace the F70s with Brazilian-made Embraer aircraft.

The new KLM lounge

The lounge of the future

More comfort and more space: the brand-new KLM non-Schengen Crown Lounge will offer travellers an unparalleled experience. To be partially inaugurated in June 2018, the lounge will boast a Delft Blue entrance and be divided into various zones, each with their own unique ambiance and look. The Lowland zone welcomes passengers who wish to work and relax, while the F&B City section will provide a great variety of food and beverages. 

One of the highlights will be the outdoor terrace in the High Land area on the third floor: no other airport in the world offers its passengers a lounge where you can step outside in the open air. The new lounge will accommodate 1,400 passengers. Our mission is to create the most attractive lounge in the world, a destination it its own right.
