Opted in? Ask us questions as well!
Any questions? No problem. If you opted in on KLM.com to receive flight information and documentation via WhatsApp, you will also be able to contact us, 24/7 in the same thread. We answer questions in Dutch, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Japanese, simplified Chinese and Korean. You can also contact us in Italian during local office hours.

Your messages are secured

All messages on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted. WhatsApp has created a business application that makes it possible for KLM to connect to you, using the same end-to-end encryption as used in WhatsApp. Messages are secured so that only you and KLM can read them, and nobody in between, not even WhatsApp.
