Delta and Transavia have forged a new codeshare partnership that expands the destinations available to U.S. travelers visiting Europe.
Delta customers flying on any of Delta’s 19 peak-day to Amsterdam can connect with Air France/KLM’s low-fare airline Transavia under a Delta booking number. The codeshare flights are pending government approval.
Delta and Transavia codeshare destinations
The codeshare adds destinations unavailable through Delta’s trans-Atlantic service: Seville and Alicante, Spain; Thessaloniki, Greece; and Marrakech, Morocco.
The flight available for six additional Delta destinations will increase with Transavia-operated flights for Barcelona, Malaga, Valencia, and Ibiza, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; and Casablanca, Morocco.
Opportunity to Expand Delta and Transavia codeshare partnership in future
“Partnering with Transavia will enable Delta to expand its network to include more leisure destinations, primarily in the Mediterranean region. These destinations are popular with U.S. tourists,” said Nat Pieper, Deltas senior vice president of Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
“This agreement complements our already extensive network of codeshare services offered via Amsterdam with our partner KLM and opens the possibility of Delta being able to codeshare to additional Transavia destinations in the future.”
Passenger Advantages to Delta and Transavia Codeshare Partnership
Flying Delta codeshare on Transavia routes, customers have coordinated customer service, a single ticket, and can check their bags to their final destination. Delta SkyMiles members can earn frequent flyer miles on all Transavia-operated Delta scheduled flights.
“Transavia sets the tone in hospitality, service and digital technology in the European low-cost market. We look forward to offering Delta customers a warm welcome and friendly service on board our flights,” said Paul de Raad, Transavia’s vice president of Marketing and e-commerce.
“As we celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2016, we are set on maintaining our position as the leading European point-to-point carrier. We aim to become the most affordable and accessible airline in Europe.”
