In 1919, a young aviator lieutenant named Albert Plesman sponsored the ELTA aviation exhibition in Amsterdam. The exhibition was a great success; after it closed, several Dutch commercial interests intended to establish a Dutch airline, which Plesman was nominated to head.[10] In September 1919, Queen Wilhelmina awarded the yet-to-be-founded KLM its “Royal” (“Koninklijke”) predicate. On 7 October 1919, eight Dutch businessmen, including Frits Fentener van Vlissingen, founded KLM as one of the first commercial airline companies. Plesman became its first administrator and director.
