Next step in the development of Transavia: opening of a new base in Munich (Germany)

Air France-KLM confirms Transavia’s step to open a new European base in Munich as from March 2016. The Group’s low-cost activity will offer its customers 18 destinations* on departure from Germany to Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy, Morocco, the Netherlands and Portugal. With 4 Boeing 737-800s based in Munich, Transavia will operate over 101 weekly flights on departure from the Bavarian capital throughout the 2016 summer season.

Transavia’s ambition is to develop its activity on departure from France and the Netherlands, but also from other European countries in order to constantly seize new growth opportunities on the European low-cost market. It is a key pillar of the Air France-KLM Group’s strategy within the framework of the Perform 2020 plan.

Flights on departure from Munich will mainly be operated by German crews based on site. Transavia will thus create 120 jobs in the region by integrating experienced pilots and flight attendants into its workforce.

The first flights can be booked today from 19 euros one-way and subsequently from 29 euros on or at the travel agents.

Transavia is expanding its low-cost flight operations on departure from France, the Netherlands and shortly from Germany to Europe and the Mediterranean.  Its growth objectives are to become customers’ preferred low-cost carrier, maintain its leadership position in the Netherlands and be the leading airline on departure from Paris-Orly to Europe in 2015.

Transavia operates flights to sunny and winter sports destinations, as well as a wide choice of city break opportunities in the main European cities. This winter, Transavia serves over 110 destinations in Europe and North Africa. Moreover, there will be close to 70 aircraft in the fleet at the end of 2016.
