JFKIAT, the operator of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, partnered with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to celebrate the airline’s 100th anniversary with a day of festivities in Terminal 4. 

On Monday, KLM held a festive day of music at T4, including live performances by Netherlands-based Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra to mark this monumental milestone and thank customers for their help in achieving 100 years of continued service under the original name. Travelers checking in had the opportunity to take photos with KLM banners and tulip decorations. Within the terminal, the Orchestra performed a five-piece selection during a 30-minute set in the Retail Lounge before serenading passengers who were boarding KLM flights. The waiting areas for KL642 and KL636 flights were decorated with KLM100 branded garlands, flags, tablecloths, delft blue vases with tulips on the counters and KLM banners. Passengers were also treated to cake and drinks.
