Fly with KLM Airlines
Getting To Know KLM Airlines
KLM is an airline dedicated to innovation and improvement. From their newly designed World Business Class sections, attentiveness to personal care, chef-prepared in-flight dining, to their one-of-a-kind “Meet and Seat” passenger networking service that allows you to find out a bit more about who will be flying with you, KLM takes airline innovation to the next level. KLM also cares about sustainable travel; their work towards actively reducing CO2 emissions have led KLM to be awarded “best-in-class” status among all large international airlines for fuel efficiency. A new program (CO2ZERO) allows travelers to contribute to lessoning the environmental impact of flying through investing in CO2 reduction projects worldwide.

Why Fly With KLM
- Daily flights from Cairo to KLM’s main hub in Amsterdam take just over 4 hours of flying time. From there, connect to hundreds of destinations around the globe!
- Meet & Seat is KLM’s innovative program that lets you find out about interesting people who will be travelling on your KLM flight – and shows you where they will be sitting on board. To make use of this networking program, simply log in to My Trip or check in on KLM.com, and connect with your Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn account. Then you can see other passengers’ profile details and choose your seat based on a shared interest or destination (conference or training event) with your seat-mate.
- Meet & Seat is available for bookings made for only one passenger, for all KLM operated flights to and from Amsterdam, up to one hour before departure.
- On almost every intercontinental KLM flight, you will find your seat comes equipped with a personal interactive screen on which to enjoy any of the 1000 hours of entertainment options (movies, TV, music, games). KLM’s selection of over 80 films – including the most recent releases – are updated around the first of every month. KLM currently only offers Wi-Fi on one of its Boeing 777-300 jets as a pilot program that could be expanded upon in the future.
