The 5 Most Remarkable KLM Blogs Of 2017

2017 is over, so it’s high time that we looked back on the past year. We post three or four KLM blogs every week. Personal stories recounted by our (blogging) crew, who work at every level of KLM. Blogs about destinations, facts about flying and everything else relating to aviation and travel. In short, there were plenty of blogs to choose from! Here are the five we found most remarkable.
