Statement KL868 Osaka - Amsterdam

Shortly after departing from Osaka on Saturday, flight KL868 (Boeing 777-200) Osaka to Amsterdam lost a piece of fairing (appr. 1m2) which landed in the city. Damage to a car has been reported. No one was injured. The aircraft was able to continue its flight safely to the Netherlands and landed safely at Schiphol Saturday afternoon. At no point was there any danger to those on board the aircraft. KLM regrets this incident and has immediately launched an investigation into the causes. KLM is in close contact with the Japanese Civil Aviation Authority and Boeing on this matter.
