Klm Cancels Kosher Meals

Download PDF for this date

KLM, the Dutch airline, announced that it is closing its kosher kitchen at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport as of October I because of a fall off in demand for in-flight kosher meals and the lack of space. KLM, which has several flights a week to Israel, has been supplying kosher meals at Schiphol for its own flights and those of El Al, Israel’s national airline.

KLM said that fewer passengers, including Jewish passengers, are requesting kosher meals, although there has been an increased demand from Moslem passengers whose religion forbids eating park products. Although KLM will no longer prepare kosher meals, it plans to continue offering them on request.
