Boeing (Chicago, Seattle and Charleston) and Transavia Company (Transavia Airlines and Transavia France), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Air France KLM Group, today announced an order for 17 Next-Generation 737-800s, including options for three additional airplanes. The order, valued at $1.6 billion at current list prices, was previously booked and attributed to an unidentified customer on the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website.
The order will significantly support the growth of Transavia’s operations from France and the Netherlands. The airline currently has a combined all-Boeing fleet of 45 Next-Generation 737s.
Air France and KLM are now funneling more routes to its two main subsidiaries.
Transavia Company has six bases, with Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport and Paris-Orly Airport as its main hubs, serving 110 destinations in Europe and North Africa. Passenger numbers reached 10 million in 2014.
