KLM Nigeria is celebrating its 65th anniversary of flying into Nigeria. To commemorate its 65th anniversary in Nigeria, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is giving back to its customers for making KLM their preferred carrier over the years. The first 65 customers to purchase their ticket on-line from the 19th of March to the 26th of March 2012 via klm.com.ng stand a chance of winning two economy class tickets to Amsterdam through a raffle draw. Moreover, customers stand a chance of getting as much as 65 per cent off their economy class fare to Europe during the same period on twitter and facebook.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines was founded on October 7, 1919, and it is the oldest airline in the world still operating under its original name. It started its operation in Nigeria on March 26, 1947 with a three weekly flight in/out of Kano. KLM offers in Nigeria, daily flights out of Lagos, and three weekly flights out of Abuja and Kano.
“These 65 years of commitment to Nigeria have been very inspiring; we always look for more ways to satisfy our growing customers’ demands which is why we launched a new exceptional service at the airport a few months ago, which includes combined check in counter for both Air France and KLM, a dedicated premium service team, fast baggage drop off and we also offer Nigerian meals on board our flights. In the years to come we would continue to strive towards giving our Nigerian customers the best of service,” says Cosmando Byarugaba, Commercial Director, Air France KLM Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
