KLM was founded on October 7, 1919, making it the oldest carrier in the world still operating under its original name. The first KLM flight was on May 17, 1920, with a flight from London to Amsterdam carrying two English journalists and a number of newspapers. This first flight was carried out by an Airco de Havilland DH16, callsign EALU, piloted by Jerry Shaw. In 1921 KLM started regularly scheduled services, by 1926 offering flights to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Brussels, Paris, London, Bremen, Copenhagen, and Malmo; using primarily Fokker F2 & F3. Intercontinental service to Indonesia started in 1929 using Fokker F7-B, although the first non-scheduled KLM flight had been made in 1924 by Fokker F7 Callsign NACC piloted by van der Hoop. The first transatlantic KLM route intiated between Amsterdam and Curacao in December 1934 using the Fokker F-XVIII "Snip." On May 21, 1946, KLM launched scheduled service between Amsterdam and New York, while the first polar route occured on the Amsterdam-Japan route on November 1, 1958. In March 1960, KLM introduced the first jet aircraft into the its fleet: the Douglas DC-8. Utilization of Schipol began in April 1967, and first Boeing 747 entered the KLM fleet in February 1971, beginning the era of widebody jets. In June 1989, KLM introduced the first Boeing 747-400, an important milestone for the coming decade. Later that year, in July, KLM acquired 20% of Northwest Airlines, eventually forming a strong alliance between the two airlines. In March 1994 both KLM and Northwest Airlines introduced World Business Class on intercontinental routes, and in July 1995, KLM introduced its first Boeing 767-300ER. In March and June 2002, KLM announced that it would be renewing its intercontinental fleets by phasing the Boeing 767s, Boeing 747-300s, and eventually the McDonnell Douglas MD-11 with Boeing 777-200ERs and Airbus A330-200s. The first Boeing 777 was received on October 25, 2003, entering commercial service on the Amsterdam-New York route, while the first Airbus A330-200 was introduced on August 25, 2005 and entered commercial service on the Amsterdam-Washington Dulles route.

Merger

On 30 September 2003, Air France and KLM announced that they would in future be known as Air France-KLM. This entity was first offered on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange on 5 May 2004. The takeover of KLM by Air France marked the end of the oldest independent airline in the world. The Royal adjective will likely remain for the foreseeable future. Its independent identity is guaranteed to 2008, but eventually it is anticipated that its operations will be merged into those of the French company. In the meantime, it does not appear that KLM's longstanding joint venture with Northwest Airlines will be affected. Both KLM and Northwest joined the SkyTeam Alliance in September 2004.

KLM Asia is a wholly KLM owned subsidiary, founded in 1995, with the purpose to start flights to Taipei, Taiwan. At that time, the Peoples Republic of China did not give landing authorization to airliners who also had flights to Taiwan, who saw this as a piece of China. To get around this problem, KLM founded a subsidiary airline registered in Taiwan, who flew on Taipei flights. The Aircraft are painted in KLM colours and carry the name KLM Asia. Though they carry the KLM logo, the blue crown is missing.
