Does anybody know what KLM is an abbreviation for? I need it for the list of abbreviation of my diploma thesis.
Thanks for help!

KLM is a Dutch abreviation.
It means "Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij"

Roughly translated into english you would get: "Royal Airline" or "Royal Air Company".

KLM calls itself Royal Dutch Airlines in english but not in Dutch, otherwise the abbreviation would have been KNLM (Koninklijke Nederlandse Luchtvaart Maatschappij).

I don't dispute OO-VEG but as a literal translation
Luchtvaart is "Air Travel".
So Royal air travel company.
