HISTORY: NLM CITYHOPPER full name Nederlandse Luchtvaart Maatschappij (Dutch Aviation Company), was a Dutch commuter airline, founded in 1966. The carrier was formed as Nederlandse Luchtvaart Maatschappij (NLM) in 1966. Starting operations on 29 August 1966 using leased Fokker F27 aircraft from the Royal Dutch Air Force, it was set up as a KLM subsidiary under a two-year contract to operate domestic services within the Netherlands. The airline changed its name to NLM CityHopper/Netherlines, following the acquisition of Netherlines by its parent company KLM in April 1988; operations of both subsidiaries were subsequently merged. Despite sharing their operational structure, both companies were separate entities until 1 April 1991, when they were absorbed into the newly created KLM Cityhopper.
