What is flight KL1?

Flight KL1 from LEJ-LEJ a couple of weeks ago looks like great fun. I'm not an aviation afficionado, but I'm wondering what exactly would this kind of flight be for? And in the past, did the company ever reserve the flight number KL1 for a "proper" flight, perhaps to a major destination?

Given the route, maybe it was a landing approach training?

There is a lot of training taking place at KLC, many new pilots to come on line in the coming months to address shortages. Given the timing of this flight on a Saturday it will definitely be circuit training and there should be associated AMS LEJ and LEJ AMS before and after this one.

Lille and Aalborg are also often used for training.
