Air France-KLM Group’s new French medium-haul leisure carrier, Transavia France, has firmed up eight more destinations, joining its launch service to Porto in Portugal.

Boeing 737-800 operator Transavia France will launch operations on 12 May with its initial twice-daily link between Paris Orly and Porto.

Building on this, the fledgling carrier has detailed a string of additional destinations which it will serve this summer. These comprise the Spanish city of Girona, Palermo and Catania in Sicily, Heraklion in Crete, the Tunisian cities of Monastir and Djerba, and Agadir and Oujda in Morocco.

It will begin twice-daily services to Girona and a daily Djerba link on 1 June. A daily Agadir service will join Transavia’s network on 29 June, along with the thrice-weekly Oujda link and five weekly frequencies to Monastir.

Palermo will also be served thrice-weekly, while both Catania and Heraklion will be twice-weekly.

Air France-KLM and Dutch carrier Transavia are launching the new carrier to offer competitive scheduled and charter leisure flights from Paris Orly. They say that the new operation is planning to build its network to 15 Mediterranean destinations.
