It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some Airplane Art.
This week, we have a KLM “Royal Dutch Airlines” Boeing 737-800 taking off from Manchester Airport as it heads back to its home base of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
KLM currently operate a fleet of 31 Boeing 737-800 aircraft in its short to medium haul. The airline also operates the smaller Boeing 737-700 and the larger Boeing 737-900 in its operation, along with the Embraer E-Jet fleet for regional operation.
The airline will be taking on the Airbus A320neo family in its fleet replacement, with 100 aircraft split between it and Transavia.
These aircraft feed into the airline’s hub at Schiphol Airport, where passengers connect to destinations both short and long distances.
This aircraft – PH-BGB – joined the airline in May 2008. It has remained placed with the airline since then. As the aircraft operates on the European network, it is a busy thing, operating to destinations recently such as Istanbul. Munich, Lisbon Stockholm Arlanda, Olso, Berlin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London-HeathrowNewastle, Vienna and Milan.
