KLM "Tour of Inspiration" truck in Athens today

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines are celebrating their 90th anniversary this year and throughout the year they organize promotional events in various places in Europe. Such an event is the "Tour of Inspiration", a around the Europe tour of the fully-furnished KLM truck. Today the truck arrived in Athens and was parked in Athens International Airport at the departures level, towards the end of the terminal. It was open to the public from 13:00L to 17:00L. It then departed for its next destination, Milan. Thanks to the friendly KLM stuff, some pictures of the exterior and interior of the truck can be seen below. KLM was founded on 7 October 1919 and has been flying ever since under the same name. This also makes KLM the oldest airline in the world still operating under its original name. You can check the route of the KLM truck on the official "Tour of Inspiration" website here:
