- Transavia launched its latest route from Eindhoven (EIN) on 9 October, commencing a three times weekly service to Krakow (KRK), its only route to Poland from the Netherlands airport, and its second destination in Eastern Europe after Prague. The carrier will operate the 1,022-kilometre sector using its fleet of 737-800s, with it poised to face direct competition from Ryanair which operates a five times weekly service on the airport pair. With the addition of Krakow to its Eindhoven network, it means that the airline offers 27 routes from the latter airport on either a seasonal or year-round basis. The carrier’s next planned route launch from the airport is scheduled to take place on 21 April, the day it will begin services to Zakynthos.
