We Are Still Going to the Moon, Says KLM

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has partnered in the Stary Exhibition ongoing at Lusaka National Museum between March 20 and 26, 2014 to bring international recognised curator Bisi Silva.

Zambian artist Stary Mwaba who is showcasing his work at the exhibition managed to convince the influential artist Bisi Silva to come for the exhibition and do a talk.

He expressed his gratitude for all the support he had received in ensuring the exhibition dubbed “we are still going to the moon” is a success.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Sales Manager, Angela Wasike also added that Silva Bisi’s visit to Zambia would be great for the Zambian artists and arts as she can help connect Zambians to the international scene.

African artists have been using the arts to communicate about issues that affect the society in a context in which their rich culture can be seen, experienced and studied across the borders.

KLM showed its support by upgrading Silva Bisi’s ticket from Economy to Business class.

Other partners of the event include the Embassy of Sweden in Lusaka.

Reinforcement of existing partnership network in North America

In North America, KLM will be strengthening its position within the existing joint venture network operated by AIR FRANCE KLM, Alitalia and Delta Airlines. For example, KLM will be taking over a direct flight from Amsterdam to New York (USA) from Delta Airlines in summer 2014, now flying three times a day on this route. KLM will also expand service in its Houston (USA) business market to nine frequencies a week.

Growth in Central and South America boosted by strategic cooperation

AIR FRANCE KLM recently announced having entered into far-reaching strategic cooperation with its Brazilian partner GOL. Based on commercial cooperation between Brazil and Europe, KLM can now offer even more destinations in Brazil. KLM’s own network will also be expanded this summer. For example, KLM’s scheduled service to Santiago de Chile (Chile), launched in winter, will continue throughout the summer. Additionally, the frequency of KLM’s service to QuitoGuayaquil (Ecuador) will be raised to a daily flight.

Stabilisation and optimisation of Middle East and Asian network

KLM will succeed in maintaining its position in the Middle East in summer 2014. This will also be driven by the successful code-share agreement between KLM and partner Etihad Airways. Supported by this cooperation, KLM is now in a better position to offer its passengers destinations within Oceania (incl. Australia).
