How and why this virtual airline?

To describe this story best, it might be handy to tell a little bit about my personal career. My name is Sven Duijff. I am the founder of this virtual airline and I live very close to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM). When growing up, I always wanted to work in aviation, but not as a pilot because I did not want to work in aviation my whole life. When I turned 18 years old, I decided to apply for a job as a flight attendant at Transavia. I got hired and started my career within one of the biggest low-budget airlines in Europe. Due to seasonal contracts, I had some other jobs in between flight seasons, and after a few years, I moved on and went to work for a travel agency. In 2018, I started working for KLM (Cityhopper) and worked there for nearly 4 years with a lot of joy and pleasure.

Now, why this virtual airline? As you’ve read so far, I have worked for two Dutch airlines. What I missed in the online sim community so far was a Dutch virtual airline that had a professional website, looked sharp, was well-maintained and up-to-date. I ran a Transavia virtual airline in the past, which was very successful. Due to my job occupation back in the days, I did not proceed with this. Now I decided to create this group of airlines containing our Dutch airlines. This way, you can not only fly one Dutch airline but six at the same time. EasyJet is not a Dutch airline but has a Dutch division with several Dutch-registered aircraft.

  • Normal landing rates (below 500 ft/min on average).

Future
