King flies football supporters  – Willem-Alexander flies fans from Feyenoord to Prague. The Feyenoord fans in the midday flight to Prague looked surprised when they saw their co-pilot.

The Royal Treatment

Feyenoord fans on the 12:15 p.m. flight to Prague looked surprised when they saw their co-pilot. None other than King Willem-Alexander personally flew the Rotterdammers to the Czech capital.

One Feyenoord supporter managed to snap a pic of the King behind the “wheel” of the KLM plane. “I honestly think he’s for Feyenoord now,” the supporter said to Rijnmond Sport. The King is a known’ Ajax supporter. “But his wife, Queen Maxima, is for Feyenoord. That compensates a bit,” the supporter said. “Isn’t this beautiful? I think it’s really fun! We’re going to make this a great party.”

I honestly think he is now for Feyenoord,” a supporter told RTV Rijnmond, who managed to take a picture of the swinging king in the cockpit. “I couldn’t get very close, because a security guard stopped me.”

King Willem-Alexander is known as an Ajax fan and he couldn’t resist making some jokes about the intercom. “Yes, that’s nice, I think it’s funny,” said the supporter. At Schiphol, the travelers had no idea that they were on a unique flight.

Who else gets the royal treatment? The King is extremely interested in flying. In 1985 he obtained his Private Pilot’s Licence (Second Class), followed by his Commercial Pilot’s Licence (with an Instrument Rating) in 1987.
