Airline KLM to launch budget service

Tuesday 29 January 2013

Airline Air France-KLM is launching a new low-cost service under the name Hop!, by merging the group's three existing budget companies.

The new unit will have 98 aircraft and fly to 136 destinations within Europe, with tickets from €55 upwards for a single journey. The aim is to compete with other price-fighters on short and medium routes.

Other European airlines, such as Lufthansa, have already launched budget services.

The new company - a combination of Brit Air, Regional and Airlinair - should become operational on March 31.

Transavia is also a subsidiary of Air France-KLM. Why aren't they also being absorbed into Hop! ?

Since when is Transavia a low-cost airline?

@Alice, since they charge only a few tenners on certain dates and certain destinations. Just like any other low cost airline.

Transavia will survive parallel to HOP. It's another business line for Air France/ KLM.
@ Alice, I took this quote from transavia.com website: it enhances transavia.com’s image as a low cost airline.
