Transavia announced these new routes within a press release.[1] Additionally, from June 4th, the Schiphol-based airline will resume flying to Malaga (Spain), Athens (Greece), and both Lisbon and Faro in Portugal. As Transavia continues operations following the coronavirus pandemic, the airline announced that it would be adding new destinations[2]. These destinations and the operating days will be published on Transavias’ website every Wednesday afternoon.

From June 4th all passengers and crew must wear a face mask

In this age of COVID-19[3] and many people’s reluctance to fly, Transavia was eager to point out that it wanted to make the flying experience safe and healthy. Aircraft will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected each day, and as of June 4th, all passengers and crew will be required to wear face masks.

As the wholly-owned KLM[4] subsidiary slowly returns to service, its flight schedules will be subject to change based on developments and the government’s reactions to travel. Because of this, Transavia asks that passengers remain flexible while restrictions are relaxed or tightened.

Transavia[5] will do its best to inform passengers of changes to flights or cancelations two weeks in advance. Regarding this announcement, Transavia has had to cancel trips to Thessaloniki and Heraklion between June 4th and June 17th. This move followed guidelines from the Greek government. Flights to Athens have not been affected by the measures and will still operate.

Transavia is monitoring the situation in Greece

Transavia will continue to monitor Thessaloniki and Heraklion’s situation. It will resume these services once it gets the green light from Athens.
