happy 100th b-day KLM

As former KLM employees at bagchain, you never lose your blue vibes. So today marks a special day, KLM is turning 100. Making it the oldest airline in the world still operating under its original name. Did you know when a company in the Netherlands turns 100 years the King has the right to appoint the Royal title. KLM received back in 1919 from Queen Wilhelmina the Royal predicate. Hence the name Royal Dutch Airline… From all of us at bagchain we are wishing KLM a happy 100th birthday!
