Transavia will open Katowice – Amsterdam route

Dutch budget airline Transavia will launch a connection between Katowice and the Netherland’s capital next spring.

The flights to Amsterdam-Schiphol will be carried out three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday) by Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The new route will be inaugurated on 9th of May 2017.

Transavia is a unit of KLM Air France. This way the airline is making its debut at Katowice Airport.

Amsterdam is the fifth new destination that will be added to Katowice’s flight schedule next spring alongside the Lisbon, Malta, Reykjavik and Catania routes announced earlier by low-cost Hungarian airline Wizz Air.

Amsterdam’s Schiphol is Europe’s fifth biggest airport, according to the last year’s data. In 2015 it handled over 58 million passengers.
