KLM cityhopper is the regional subsidiary of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines part of the Air France-KLM Group. The airline, with its head office, the Convair Building, on the grounds of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in Schiphol-Oost, Haarlemmermeer, operates short haul services in and around Europe. Flights are scheduled to approximately 44 destinations but this can vary on the time of year and the carrier takes up differing routes when required to do so by its parent carrier KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

The company identity is identical to that of its parent carrier with the addition of “cityhopper” after the KLM Crown logo and the absence of “The Flying Dutchman” & “Royal Dutch Airlines” on its aircraft livery. A reworked font style is about to be released in line with the airline's modernisation and marketing campaigns since 2008.

The airline has 5 fully crewed UK bases in operation, inherited from its purchase of Air UK and subsequent merge in of the KLM UK brand. To that end several hundred British Cockpit and Cabin Crew continue to operate KLM cityhopper flights from the UK and the Netherlands across the carrier's network.

In line with its parent carrier and despite the operation of smaller aircraft, KLM cityhopper offers a 2 class cabin on the majority of its flights over 50 minutes.

KLM cityhopper operates a very successful structure of feeder services to its hub at Amsterdam with regular, well timed departures daily from all over Europe that complement the connecting intercontinental services from its parent airline and Skyteam partners.

The airline is part of the Air France-KLM group.
