KLM is inextricably linked to Schiphol. The Amsterdam airport has been KLM's homebase from the airline's inception to the present day. KLM has grown enormously over the years and has made Schiphol the mainport with international appeal it is today. KLM has performed a pioneering role in international aviation since its establishment in 1919. Its resourceful, customer-oriented and reliable employees form the strong foundations that have made this possible. These same human qualities make KLM stand out today as a leader in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
KLM AirCares was founded in 1999 based on the proposition that, as a socially responsible enterprise, KLM bears a responsibility to underprivileged children living in the countries to which it flies - countries in which the living conditions leave something to be desired. Since that time, AirCares has been supporting charitable organizations in sustainable projects which it chooses based on the local need. These projects all contribute to achievement of the UN's Millennium Development Goals. The main purpose of this support is to help bring about development which can contribute at a deeper level to improving these children's living conditions.
