KLM had served a variety of US cities over the years, especially in cooperation with Northwest Airlines (Memphis, Minneapolis). Despite the theatrics of Shamu and company, this 1988 launch to Disney World might have been short-lived, as KLM is no longer a scheduled arrival at Orlando. During this period, it was possible to fly off to Europe, Japan and Brazil on flag carriers, giving central Florida a cosmopolitan air. Currently, the Amsterdam-Orlando route is served by KLM's sister carrier, holiday-focused Martinair.
