KLM surprises high-school graduates with air tickets


KLM Royal Dutch Airlines surprised twelve high-school graduates in the Netherlands with free air tickets. Of the 200,000 Dutch students writing exams this year, no fewer than 35,000 registered for KLM’s “Geslaagde Actie” campaign. The twelve winning graduates each received two KLM tickets to a destination of their choice, anywhere in the world. 

It is a longstanding Dutch tradition for high-school graduates to fly their school bag alongside the flag when they pass their exams. They have earned the right to kick back and relax! Their hard work deserves to be rewarded, which is why KLM once again surprised twelve graduates with free air tickets. One winner was chosen in each of the Dutch provinces and KLM teams set off in the early morning to place the tickets in the school bags of the twelve lucky winners.

This year the KLM tickets to dream destinations where handed out in Amersfoort, Apeldoorn, Brielle, Delfzijl, Dronten, Emmen, Harlingen, Hengelo, Tilburg, Uitgeest, Veere and Voerendaal.

KLM congratulates everyone who passed their exams and wishes the winners a wonderful journey!
