During and immediately after the Second World War the transportation by air in the Netherlands was provided by No.. 1316 (English Communications) Flight RAF Transport Command. When this section was terminated its airplanes went to the "Netherlands Government Air Transport" (NGAT). At that time it was not allowed to civil airlines to land at airports along the route. Therefore the Dutch Government performed the routes as a government service. In the autumn of 1945, the Dutch Government hired Douglas C-54 aircraft from the former USAF in order to recover KLM-services. The aircraft were flown by KLM crews, formally employed by the State and were therefore air force uniforms. The machines had an airforce NL-registration, which were repaced in 1947 by the civil PH-registration after the transfer of activities to the KLM . The NL-300 came into service in October 1945 and performed the first flight on 10.11.1945 to the Dutch Indies. Later it became the registration PH-TAB. In October 1947 the aircraft was sold to Skyways in GB.

The three L-1049H's of the KLM entered service in 1958 and due to the arrival of the DC-8's from 1960 onwards, out of service in 1962. Its R-3350 engines were complicated and difficult to maintain.

The PH-LKN was the last L-1049H in the KLM-fleet and out of service in July 1962. Eventually it was sold in Mai 1966 to Flying Tiger Line in the USA.

The Brabazon Committee was established in 1942 with the aim of identifying the needs of the post-war British civilian market. One of the specifications was a design for an aircraft with a pressurized cabin that could carry 24 passengers over 1,750 miles with a speed of 200 miles per hour. The Vickers Viscount was Vickers-Armstrong's proposal. Revolutionary was the choice for the newly developed Rolls Royce Dart turboprop. The Committee was not entirely convinced and actually preferred piston engines. In addition to a prototype for the Viscount, it was decided to order a prototype for the Airspeed Ambassador. The Viscount flew for the first time in 1948. The test flights resulted in the production series 700 and 800. The last mentioned had an extended fuselage of 1.20 mtr. 445 Viscounts were eventually built by only 23 of the Ambassador. In 1956, KLM ordered nine of the series 800 and these were delivered from mid-1957 onwards. The PH-VIA was part of the KLM-fleet until 1966 and then sold to Aer Lingus, together with the other eight.
