Transavia has this week completed it’s first set of Airbus A321neo commercial flights from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
Such moves represents the continuation of a new strategy of adopting Airbus aircraft in their fleet.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Transavia Completes First Airbus A321neo Flights from Amsterdam…
PH-YHZ, the first Airbus A321neo for Transavia, began it’s round of commercial flights, with the first flight being from Amsterdam Schiphol to Pisa.
The Dutch carrier is going to utilise this aircraft considerably, with services to Ljubljana and Bari also being on the roster for the first set of flights.
PH-YHZ was delivered to the airline on December 19 from the Airbus facility in Hamburg.
Owned by the Air France-KLM group, the conglomerate placed an order for 100 A320neo Family aircraft, of which this will be spread out across the group.
Within this, it does appear to be the case that Transavia will phase out it’s older Boeing 737 aircraft, with the intention of being a single-fleet operator of the A320neo Family aircraft later down the line, with plenty of operations from Amsterdam Schiphol.
As per data from Planespotters.net, this is what the Dutch carrier’s fleet looks like (Accurate to January 5, 2024):
- 1 Airbus A321neo.
- 4 Boeing 737-700s.
- 40 Boeing 737-800s.
All eyes will be on Transavia and it’s approach to fleet modernisation and expansion, as the carrier aims to grow into the rest of the decade.
But for now, let’s see how performance continues with their Airbus A321neo aircraft, as it is expected that future deliveries are being hugely anticipated in Amsterdam.
