KLM celebrates its 100th anniversary today, making it the oldest airline in the world still operating with its original name. Founded on 7 October 1919, KLM’s first flight was conducted a few months later in May 1920. The first KLM flight was conducted with a leased De Haviland DH-16 from Aircraft Transport and Travel, a precursor to British Airways. Today, KLM operates 174 aircraft.
