Transavia will offer cheap flights within France
Transavia will compete on domestic flights in France. By using Transavia, Air France wants to be able to compete better with price fighters such as Ryanair and easyJet. Air France also wants to compete with Transavia on TGV. At the moment, Air France’s domestic flights are not profitable.
The pilots’ union SNPL has given the green light to Transavia France to offer flights within France. With this, airline HOP! also has a serious competitor on the domestic French market. Air France will no longer offer domestic flights. A select number of business routes will remain under Air France’s own management.
At this moment Transavia France operates flights from Paris-Orly, Lyon, Montpellier and Nantes. These flights go to European destinations. It is not yet known from which airports the domestic flights are operated. At this moment the fleet of Transavia France consists of 50 aircraft. It is the intention that this will be expanded considerably in the coming years.
