Over 1,000 runners dressed in the airline’s blue took part in the last leg of its the global celebration of the carrier, the world’s oldest airline still operating under its original name. In 1919, aviation pioneer Albert Plesman founded the airline. It now operates between Amsterdam and more than 160 destinations. “China is always one of KLM’s most important markets in the world, and Chinese customers are always at the heart of KLM,” said Toon Balm, general manager of Air France KLM China.
