Comfort is much more than a comfortable seat
A cosy ambiance enhances your travel comfort. Together with KLM specialists, Dutch designer Hella Jongerius has created a warm and friendly environment on board that prioritizes passenger comfort.
The design features warm dark colours in the furnishings and the seats. The luxurious pillows offer additional comfort with multifunctional touches. The front of the pillow is finished with silk for a cool and comfortable touch.
“Our cradle-to-cradle carpeting is an outstanding sustainable creation, made with high-quality recycled fabrics, including old KLM flight attendant uniforms”
The carpeting in the World Business Class is quite unique. This sustainable fabric is made from quality recycled materials, including old KLM flight attendant uniforms. These are used to spin new yarn that creates the blue accents in the carpeting. The carpet also includes discarded Norwegian sheep wool. KLM is the first airline in the world to use cradle-to-cradle carpeting.

Wine and dine
Sample the creations of our Dutch master chefs
Food tastes quite different at high altitude, so every meal in the World Business Class has been carefully prepared by our master chefs. KLM only works with Michelin star master chefs, such as Onno Kokmeijer, the chef of the two-star restaurant on the 24th floor of the Okura hotel in Amsterdam.
Inspired by our destinations and available fresh ingredients, his menus vary regularly.
Kokmeijer is currently chef of Ciel Bleu, a two-star restaurant on the 24th floor of the Okura hotel Amsterdam. Boerma is chef of De Leest, and will open a new restaurant in the fully renewed Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam.
The wine served in the World Business Class is selected by renowned Dutch sommeliers. These wine experts specialise not only in finding great wines that match the on board menus, but they also understand how altitude affects the flavour.
Holbrecht Duijker is a famous Dutch wine expert and wine journalist who selects wines for the KLM World Business Class. Duiker has written numerous books and won multiple awards, including Wine Communicator of the Year and the Officier de l’Ordre du Mérite Agricole.
“I want to make passengers feel as if they are dining in a fine dining restaurant”
