On June 11, the low-cost carrier Transavia France, which is part of the Air France-KLM Group, inaugurated non-stop service from Stockholm Arlanda to Montpellier.
Now the airline is expanding its range of routes on offer, launching a direct route to Transavia’s main base, Paris-Orly Airport, with service starting October 21.
Paris-Orly Airport is located just south of Paris, less than 20 km from the city centre.
“It is gratifying that now when the spread of the coronavirus is slowing as the vaccine rollout continues, we are seeing the beginning of a recovery for the aviation industry,” says Elizabeth Axtelius, Director of Aviation Business at Swedavia.
“That Transavia France after operating scarcely one month at Stockholm Arlanda, has chosen to invest further in the Swedish market and is increasing its range of flights available during what continue to be difficult times for the entire industry, is a sign of increased demand and a clear indication of Stockholm’s strong position.”
“The EU’s digital Covid certificate is an initiative that will make it easier for travelers in Europe as more countries join and thus contribute to the travel restrictions being lifted in a coordinated way,” concludes Elizabeth Axtelius.
“We welcome all solutions that make it easier for safe travel between countries now that the number of travelers is increasing and more people want to travel again,”
“After Montpellier this summer, we are delighted to open this new route from Stockholm to France,” said Nicolas Hénin, Chief Commercial Officer of Transavia France.
“This new service will allow travelers to enjoy their vacations in Paris during winter while at the same time benefit from a quality low-cost offer.
“We look forward to welcoming our Swedish clients, who are eager to travel again to the French capital”.
