Transavia has been named as the customer which previously placed an order with Boeing for 17 737-800s, plus options for three additional aircraft of the same model, while maintaining anonymity over its identity.
This announcement therefore does not add any new sale or customer to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website.
The order will significantly support the growth of Transavia's operations from both France and the Netherlands. The airline currently has a combined all-Boeing fleet of 45 737NGs.
"We have grown to become one of the leading low cost carriers in France and the Netherlands by effectively utilising the unrivalled economics and unmatched reliability of the Next-Generation 737," remarked Bram Graber, CEO, Transavia Company. "This latest order will provide us with a solid platform to grow our business, while offering our passengers outstanding value and comfort."
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.
