Transavia France is to add six new routes to its network this winter, including destinations in Egypt, Morocco, Spain and Tunisia.

Although Paris Orly-based Transavia France is yet to formally detail its winter 2007 schedule, its website shows six new destinations comprising the Egyptian cities of Hurghada and Luxor, Grenada in Spain, Ouarzazate and Fez in Morocco, and Tozeur in Tunisia.

Transavia France will begin services to Hurghada on 31 October. It will initially offer weekly flights on the route, but will increase its frequencies to twice-weekly from 16 December. Weekly services to Transavia France’s second Egyptian destination, Luxor, will begin on 3 November.

From 28 October the French carrier will offer thrice-weekly services to the Spanish city of Grenada. In Morocco, Transavia is planning to launch twice-weekly Ouarzazate services on 29 October and a twice-weekly Fez link on 30 October.

Touzue in Tunisia completes Transavia France’s winter network additions. It will serve the city twice-weekly from 29 October.

Leisure carrier Transavia France launched services in May and is aiming to build its fleet to four Boeing 737-800s by the end of this year, further expanding to seven aircraft next year and nine by the close of 2009. It is 60% owned by Air France, with the remainder belonging to KLM’s Dutch subsidiary Transavia.
