Transavia is growing and attracts a wider audience

Schiphol, 22 September 2015

Starting today, Tuesday 22 September 2015, Transavia passengers can purchase airline tickets for the 2016 spring and summer season. Transavia aims to achieve significant growth with the addition of 450.000 seats. The extra capacity is primarily aimed at increasing the frequency of scheduled flights to major business destinations and offers passengers more choice and flexibility. This capacity will be expanded in the near future. 
Mattijs ten Brink, General Director of Transavia: “Earlier this year, we launched Transavia’s ambitious new growth goals and now we are in a position to make this happen. Cost-cutting measures have taken us in the right direction. A good example of this is the new Collective Labour Agreement with pilots. We are implementing lots of new initiatives in order to, among other things, further digitise the passenger journey and continuously improve the travel experience. Our passengers are the focus of everything we do and we are going the extra mile to continue serving them as optimally as possible. Hospitality has been part of our DNA for fifty years now and continues to be a major component of our goals. We now offer the best of both worlds; kindness and service combined with always affordable airline tickets.”

Comfort and flexibility 
Transavia has embarked on a new course with a greater focus on business passengers. The new summer schedule continues along this same path. Business travellers can fly to certain destinations twice a day. This change makes the Rotterdam The Hague Airport (RTHA) an even more important link in the Transavia business chain. Two daily flights are now flown to destinations like Budapest, Rome, Vienna and Berlin. RTHA offers all the convenience, comfort and speed business travellers can’t go without.
The number of flights to Copenhagen from Eindhoven Airport (EA) has increased from 5 to 12 flights a week and to Barcelona from 8 to 12 flights a week. A number of new destinations are currently being considered. 
You can get to Paris-Orly from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) within an hour and fifteen minutes – fly out to Paris for your meeting and be back in time for dinner! Passengers can choose from no fewer than 12 flights a week. 

Sun, sea and sand 
Transavia is the accessible and affordable airline with the most extensive selection of sunny destinations in Europe. Growth in this segment is also continuing. New from Amsterdam are the routes to Dubrovnik and Bergerac. Also from Amsterdam the route to Tel Aviv is being flown more frequently.
Flight frequencies to Malaga, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Alicante, Valencia, Seville, Faro, Bari and Pisa are being increased. 
The new Transavia flight schedule from the Netherlands makes it possible to book directly to 100 destinations and choose from more than 145 routes. The summer schedule runs from 4 April to 31 October 2016 inclusive. In the coming period more  routes and frequencies will be added to the flight schedule.
