According to KLM, the appreciation for the Blue restaurant was “enormous”, but partly due to the effects of the Corona crisis on reduced production and passenger numbers – both from KLM itself and from partners – the quantities were too small to continue the concept any longer . .
The Blue à la carte restaurant, which serves exclusive dishes, opened in May 2019. The chef of this restaurant was Joris Bijdendijk from the Michelin-starred restaurant RIJKS. Access was restricted to non-Schengen Crown Lounge visitors.
