Pulkovo Airport presents an exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of KLM

An exhibition of the archival photographs of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines opened in the international departures hall of Pulkovo St. Petersburg Airport. The project is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the largest airline in the Netherlands. The exposition will last until the end of January, 2020.

Pulkovo Airport passengers can discover the rich history of KLM by photographs and advertising posters from the airline’s archive, covering the period from the 1920s to the present. The exhibition presents interesting facts about aircraft types the airline operated in the last century, the cabin of the first KLM planes, uniform of the flight attendants, passenger service on board, and other details from the history of the world’s oldest airline. In addition to historical heritage, the exposition contains photographs of modern KLM aircrafts, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in a special livery for the carrier’s 100th anniversary.

Historical photographs are part of KLM’s unique photographic heritage, which is stored at the Maria Austria Institute in Amsterdam.
