KLM and Brexit

Insights into the shape of European air travel after Brexit are on the agenda for the next meeting of the Aviation Club UK on 5 April, when guest speaker will be KLM president and CEO Pieter Elbers.

The KLM Group, which includes KLM Cityhopper, Transavia and Martinair has been part of the Air France-KLM consortium since 2004, following the first major cross-border airline merger in Europe.

Aviation Club chairman Jane Johnston said: “KLM delivers a healthy dose of Dutch pragmatism and has long been successful in punching above its weight in its Amsterdam Schiphol hub.

“Pieter Elbers brings a wealth of experience to tackling the opportunities and challenges ahead and his speech on the outlook for KLM promises to be enlightening.”

With a fleet of some 150 aircraft, KLM flies to 88 European and 71 intercontinental destinations from its hub in Amsterdam including 16 destinations in the UK, and carries some 4.2m passengers a year.

Elbers, an industry veteran with 25 years’ experience at KLM under his belt, is expected to elaborate on increasing competition as well as the airline’s overall strategy on product, service and fleet and its position as a digital frontrunner.
