The Dutch Airline topped the Facebook chart with just over 4.5m fans, followed by Air France (2.8m) and Emirates (2.3m).

KLM was the only travel brand to appear in the top five for all three.

"The great thing about Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites is that are  fantastic platforms for brands with an international reach, or even those looking to expand their horizons a little, to engage with new audiences across the globe," said Commercial director at eDigitalResearch, Derek Eccleston ."However, if brands are serious about reaching out to large international audiences, as well as using platforms as a customer service tool, it is essential that their social media accounts are well maintained," he added.
