A JET-SETTER will make history when he completes his next trip, as he will surpass the 2.5 million mile mark.

Jeremy Burton, from Wokingham, will be flying from London Heathrow to Tanzania, via Amsterdam, on January 16.

Mid-flight, he will surpass 2.5 million air miles travelled, which equates to 100 trips around the world.

He has flown over 1,600 times throughout his life, almost exclusively on KLM planes, and has been flying since 1965.

Mr Burton explained his love of flying:“Once you start, you can’t give up.

"My current count puts the number of countries I’ve visited at 130; 131 after my KLM flight to Tanzania.”

He flew with KLM when he crossed the 1.5 million mark, and explained why he prefers to travel with the Air France affiliated airline.

He said: "I’m delighted to be celebrating another milestone with KLM.

What really differentiates them from their competitors is the friendliness of the staff on board.

"I regularly experience crew that go that extra mile to ensure that my flight is as enjoyable as possible."
