Dutch budget carrier Transavia and its parent KLM have contracted Amsterdam-based Flight Simulation Company (FSC) for Boeing 737 next generation full-flight simulator training.

While Transavia will conduct all of its flight crew simulator training programme at FSC, KLM is to use the company's three 737NG full-flight simulators only for overflow requirements. These will be needed as a result of the Dutch flag carrier replacing its remaining older 737s with newer models.

According to to Flightglobal's ACAS database, KLM currently operates three 737-300s and eight 737-400s.

FSC will provide 20,000 simulator hours to the two carriers over the next three years.
