Boeing announced that Transavia, a low-cost subsidiary of Air France/KLM, ordered 17 Next Generation 737-800s.  The order, which includes options for three additional aircraft, is valued at $1.6 billion at list price.

The Boeing 737-800 is part of the 737 Next Generation family, which consists of the -600, -700, -800, and -900 models of the aircraft.  It is the third generation of the 737 and has been in production since 1996.  The aircraft can be configured to seat 162 passengers in a two-class layout or up to 189 in a single class.

The carrier currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of Next Generation 737s.

Transavia was founded in 1966, and has its main hub at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.
