Company history

Netherlines Jetstream 31

Netherlines was founded in April 1984 under the full name of Netherlines Airlines For European Commuter Services BV and began services using Jetstream 31 aircraft on a route between Amsterdam and Luxembourg. Other cities served throughout the years were Eindhoven, Enschede, Rotterdam, Groningen, Cologne, Münster, Lille, Birmingham, East Midlands, Luton and Southampton.

Netherlines also used the Saab 340 to open a route to Vienna.

KLM acquired Netherlines in April 1988; the combined Netherlines-NLM Cityhopper operation was NLM CityHopper/Netherlines, and it had its head office in Building 70 at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.[2]

The operations of Netherlines were merged with NLM Cityhopper, and the combined company became KLM CityHopper on 1 April 1991.[3]
