FARNBOROUGH, ENGLAND (Reuters) - Qatar Airways on Monday agreed to buy five full-flight simulators from aviation training firm CAE, executives from both companies said at a signing ceremony at the Farnborough Airshow.

The flight training simulators will be used on Boeing Co (BA.N) 777X widebodies and single-aisle 737 MAX airplanes.

The companies did not disclose the value of the deal.
