transavia.com France adds two routes from Paris Orly and Strasbourg
transavia.com France, which in the previous week expanded its Paris Orly base with seven routes, commenced a further two links, both of which are operated twice-weekly using its 189-seat 737-800s. With the longest route being the 2,297-kilometre sector launched (Mondays and Fridays) from Strasbourg (SXB) to Marrakech (RAK) on 21 April, and the shortest being inaugurated from Paris Orly (ORY) to Budapest (BUD) on 15 April, the French-based low-cost carrier will face no competition on the new airport pairs. The new service to the Hungarian capital will see a frequency increase to thrice-weekly from 13 May. The airline already serves Marrakech from Lille (twice-weekly), Lyon (twice-weekly), Nantes (four times weekly) and Paris Orly (15 times weekly).
