KLM discontinues sale of cigarettes on board

Effective 1 July, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will no longer sell cigarettes on board its flights. The tax-free range will be extended with other goods, replacing cigarettes.

“We at KLM feel it is no longer suitable to sell cigarettes aboard our flights. KLM supports good health and sportsmanship, which simply cannot be combined with cigarettes. This move reaffirms our pledge to assume our responsibility towards broader society,” said Boet Kreiken, EVP of Customer Experience.
