KLM Royal Dutch Airlines in the Philippines turns 60 on December 5, 2011.
To commemorate this momentous occasion, the only European airline that has been operating in the country for 60 uninterrupted years is holding a photo exhibit at
the ground floor of the RCBC Plaza, corner Sen.Gil Puyat and Ayala Avenues, Makati City from 28 November until 16 December 2011.
The colorful works of four highly experienced photographers will be featured alternately during the three-week-long exhibit. Images of KLM destinations will be displayed, including shots taken by the two winners of the recent photo competition, KLM On Assignment Europe, when they travelled on an all expense paid trip to the Netherlands last October.
Capturing Dreams is dedicated to the Filipino traveler and to all the Filipinos who dare
to dream big.
