    Standaard KLM Route Batavia-Soerabaja 1948

    Hello, my name Sudiro, from Indonesia, i'm aviation enthusiast/aviation historian.

    I got these photos from RVD Batavia, about opening route Batavia-Soerabaja in 1948 using Connie PH-TES Soerabaja.

    These photos comes with information that Mr. Van Liere opened the route, it said that he was director KLM (maybe KLM Ned Indies ?).

    Well, i don't know which is Mr. Van Liere, even his full name, was it the person with glasses or the one with suits, maybe other members here can give me some more info ?Naam: 1.jpg

    Hello Sudiro,

    Looking in the contemporary newspapers on 'Delpher' I have found the following: on September 24th 1948 the Constellation was baptised 'Soerabaja' on Kemajoran by the acting mayor of Soerabaja mr. C.J.G. Becht, in the presence of the resident (regional civil government) mr. A.M. van Liere and the director of the intercontinental service of the KLM mr. H. Creutzberg and others. A photo similar to your 2nd picture was published in the newspaper 'De Vrije Pers' on the occasion of the baptism stating mr. Creutzberg is talking to mr. Becht.
    I hope this helps.

    Yes, it was on September 24th 1948.

    Okay, let me understand clearly....so it was not opening route Batavia-Soerabaja by KLM, just baptized the name for PH-TES ?

    "A photo similar to your 2nd picture was published in the newspaper 'De Vrije Pers' on the occasion of the baptism stating mr. Creutzberg is talking to mr. Becht. " <--Confirmation, Mr. Creutzberg was the man in the suits and in the left, right ?
