HistoryEdit

Transavia France was established as transavia.com France in November 2006, by Air France and the Dutch airline Transavia (transavia.com back then), and began its operations in May 2007, operating scheduled and charter flights.[1] Antoine Pussiau has been the CEO since January 2013.[2]

Transavia France chiefly operates scheduled and charter services to leisure and some metropolitan destinations, and is now positioned as part of Air France-KLM's joint low-cost brand, which operates under the Transavia name in both the Netherlands and France.[3] By early 2015, Transavia France, together with its Dutch sister company, received a new corporate design, dropping the ".com" from its public appearance, as well as changing its primary colors from white/green/blue to white/green.[4]

In 2018, Transavia France decided to further expand their base in Lyon Airport and in Nantes Airport, with the addiction of more based aircraft and the expansion of the existing routes.

Corporate affairsEdit

Ownership and structureEdit

Transavia France S.A.S. is 95.51% owned by Air France S.A. and 4.49% owned by Transavia Airlines C.V. of the Netherlands,[5] both of which in turn are ultimately owned by Air France–KLM. Transavia is run as an independent operation, with both arms operating with an identical business model, website and image.[6]

Business trendsEdit

The performance figures for the Transavia brand operations (Transavia and Transavia France) are reported within the published annual accounts of their ultimate parent, Air France-KLM. The financials for both parts of the brand are fully incorporated in the Air France-KLM accounts.

Head officeEdit

Transavia France is headquartered at Paris-Orly Airport in Paray Vieille Poste.[7][8]

Service conceptEdit

Transavia offers the "Assortment on Board" buy on board service offering food and drinks for purchase.[9]

ControversyEdit

In August 2019, the CGT union announced that the Transavia France cabin crew members will go on strike from August 16–18, denouncing the current working conditions and the ''catastrophic human and material management'' in the company.[10][11]
