Transavia France, legally Transavia France S.A.S. (previously branded as France), is a French low-cost airline and a wholly owned subsidiary Air France-KLM based at Paris-Orly Airport. It shares its corporate design and tightly cooperates with its Dutch sister company, Transavia.


Transavia France was established as France in November 2006 by Air France and the Dutch airline Transavia ( back then), and began its operations in May 2007, operating scheduled and charter flights.[1] Antoine Pussiau has been the CEO since January 2013.[2]

Transavia France chiefly operates scheduled and charter services to leisure and some metropolitan destinations, and is now positioned as part of Air France-KLM's joint low-cost brand, which operates under the Transavia name in both the Netherlands and France.[3] By early 2015, Transavia France, together with its Dutch sister company, received a new corporate design dropping the ".com" from its public appearance as well as changing its primary colors from white/green/blue to white/green.[4]

Corporate affairs[edit]

Ownership and structure[edit]

Transavia France S.A.S. is 60% owned by Air France S.A. and 40% owned by Transavia Airlines C.V. of the Netherlands, both of which in turn are ultimately owned by Air France–KLM. Transavia is run as an independent operation, with both arms operating with an identical business model, website and image.[5] The financials for both parts of the Transavia brand (Transavia and Transavia France) are fully incorporated in the published annual accounts of their ultimate parent, Air France-KLM.

Head office[edit]

Transavia France is headquartered at Paris-Orly Airport in Paray Vieille Poste.[6][7]
