Transavia resumes first flights to Porto Airport on June 15th

Transavia France, the low-cost airline of the Air France/KLM Group, will resume its first flights to Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport in two weeks, on the 15th. In the first phase, with routes connecting Porto to Lyon and Nantes, and from June 26th, extending the range of departures and landings to Paris-Orly and Montpellier airports.

"From June 15th, the low-cost airline of the Air France-KLM Group will open its first connections to Portugal (Faro, Lisbon, and Porto) from Lyon and Nantes and, from June 26th, from Paris-Orly and Montpellier", can be read in the statement issued by the air carrier.

The airline also says that the resumption of flights, as well as the opening of new destinations and increased frequencies, is dependent on "the lifting of restrictions imposed by countries and the demand for passengers", so "the progressive and cautious expansion of its flight program is subject to the evolution of the epidemic in each country".

The resumption of operations should cover about 25% of the Transavia France flight program and will be accompanied by new and reinforced sanitary measures, immediately applied at check-in, but also onboarding and during the flight, as well as on arrival at airports. Essentially, they go through the maintenance of safety distances and the mandatory use of a mask from the age of 11, as well as the use of hydroalcoholic gel and even the regular disinfection of surfaces and devices.

In this plan to reinforce sanitary measures, the air carrier says it has the support of its airport partners, as is the case with Vinci Airports, which holds the concession for national airports, through ANA - Aeroportos de Portugal.
