KLM Celebrates 92nd Anniversary with Delft Blue House No. 92 and From Holland Festival

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will be presenting Delft Blue house no. 92 in celebration of its 92nd anniversary. The replica of the De Drie Haringen (The Three Herrings) house in Deventer will be presented festively to the Mayor of Deventer, Mr Andries Heidema.

No. 92 is the latest in KLM’s series of Delft Blue houses replicating noteworthy Dutch buildings. World Business Class passengers have been receiving the miniature houses filled with Bols on flights since the 1950s.

KLM’s Dutch roots are also a central theme in the From Holland Festival. In October and November, passengers on all flights originating in Amsterdam can enjoy products and articles with a Dutch touch.

The starters, main courses and desserts served in World Business Class were created by the successful chef Mario Ridder of the two-star restaurant De Zwethheul in Schipluiden near Delft. Aside from wines grown in the Netherlands or created abroad, passengers will also have the chance to sample a variety of Dutch snacks such as kroketten, poffertjes and cheese cubes. The Economy Class menu includes meatballs with mashed potatoes, white beans and French beans. Dutch films will also be available on the inflight entertainment system.

And, during the first month, all passengers can send home a picture postcard designed by the Dutch duo BLOND. KLM will send the cards with the help of PostNL.

“KLM is once again proud to be working with one of the Netherlands’ most successful chefs. Mario Ridder is the latest in a series of great chefs to create meals for KLM; other names include Sergio Herman and Jonnie Boer,” said Erik Varwijk, Executive Vice President KLM Commercial.
