Last but not least, KLM will have a stand at both the The Runners‘ Fair for the Half-Marathon and at Expo Deporte Valencia (València Sports Fair) to inform the public of their latest products.

Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij (KLM) — or Royal Dutch Airlines — was founded in 1919. It is the world’s oldest airline still operating under its original name. In 2004, Air France and KLM merged to form the Air France-KLM Group. The merger gave rise to the biggest European airline, which is based on two powerful brands and hubs: Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol. The group offers 314 destinations in 116 countries. Each of the two component airlines maintains its own identity. The Group focusses on three main activities: passenger transport; air freight; aircraft maintenance. KLM is a partner in the SkyTeam alliance, which brings together 20 airlines with access to a world network encompassing over 17,000 flights daily to over 1,060 destinations in 177 countries. Flying Blue, the Group’s ‘Frequent Flyer’ programme, has over 15 million members. In The Iberian Peninsula, the Air France-KLM Group will offer over 2,000 flights a week to 23 Spanish and Portuguese airports in collaboration with its ‘Low Cost’ subsidiary, Transavia, and with its partners Delta Air Lines and Air Europa.
