AMS to IAH nonstop on a 737!


I was surprised to learn that KLM flies non-stop three times a week AMS <-> IAH on a B737-700! These are flights KL664 IAH to AMS and KL663 AMS to IAH.

Didnt think that any B737 had a range of 5000 miles but I guess I was wrong. do they need special ETOPS certification, extra fuel tanks etc? The aircraft is all biz class, so there are not as many pax on board.



Look at this thread.

It’s a 733 but its still the general idea.


It’s actually a BBJ operated by PrivatAir on behalf of KLM. … europe.htm
