Transavia commenced services on two routes during the past week, starting on 6 April with a link between Amsterdam (AMS) and Olbia (OLB) on the Italian island of Sardinia. The 1,318-kilometre sector will be served by the carrier twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) utilising the carrier’s 737-700 fleet. The second sector launched by the carrier commenced on 11 April between Lyon (LYS) and Faro (FAO). Flights on this 1,452-kilometre airport pair will also be served twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) using 737-700s. Both services launched by Transavia will face direct competition from incumbent easyJet, with it operating twice-weekly on the former route and thrice-weekly on the latter based on OAG Schedules Analyser data. This summer Transavia will serve 14 destinations from Lyon, up from 10 last summer. In addition to the new Faro route the LCC will shortly be adding new services to Agadir, Lisbon and Valencia.
