Michiel van Dorst steps down as EVP Flight Operations at KLM


Effective 1 January 2016, Michiel van Dorst will be stepping down as EVP Flight Operations at KLM. In this capacity, he also served as Boeing 737 Captain. He will once again focus fully on flying.

I’ve combined a number of additional functions over the past thirteen years within KLM such as serving as EVP Flight Operations for the past eight and a half years. In my opinion, the contours of the new KLM organisation will provide a strong organisational model for the future. This is the right time for me to hand over the reins.

Michiel van Dorst will, on behalf of KLM, maintain his role in the IATA Operations Committee until the next elections. His successor will be announced in due course.
