KLM’s Miffy campaign

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines launched a direct flight from Amsterdam to Fukuoka on April 3. In celebration, the airline is holding a Facebook campaign called “Miffy traveling Europe with KLM” through May 31.

In this historic service, KLM has become the first airline to directly connect Europe and Kyushu. At the arrival at Fukuoka Airport on April 4, an arch of water was sprayed to welcome the flight.

The campaign offers participants a chance to win round-trip tickets for two to Amsterdam or KLM original Miffy travel goods, such as a suitcase and suitcase belt. KLM’s official Facebook page for this campaign is at www.facebook.com/klmjapan .

To apply, people need to answer some quizzes about the travels of Miffy and Uncle Pilot in each city, which is introduced on the Facebook page by photos and videos.

Winners will be notified by the shipment of the prize. This campaign is available only for people who live in Japan. The terms and conditions might change or be canceled without prior notice.
