Transavia to launch Belgrade and Ljubljana flights


Dutch low cost carrier Transavia will launch flights from Amsterdam to both Belgrade and Ljubljana next year. The KLM subsidiary plans to operate three weekly services each to the Serbian and Slovenian capital cities, providing competition to both Air Serbia and Adria Airways. Flights to Belgrade and Ljubljana are set to launch on April 4 and operate each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday with a 183-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Tickets are already on sale through the airline’s website. The addition of both Belgrade and Ljubljana to its network are part of Transavia’s larger expansion plans from Amsterdam next summer season, which will see the carrier add a total of six routes.

Transavia will compete directly against Air Serbia on its flights between Amsterdam and Belgrade. The Serbian carrier maintained eleven weekly services on the route this summer with its Airbus A319 jets. It boasts codeshare agreements with KLM, Etihad Airways and Air Baltic on the route. In July, Air Serbia’s CEO, Dane Kondić, said the airline would see significant low cost competition in the coming period, noting that it “weighs heavily on our thoughts in terms of our future plans”. On the other hand, Wizz Air maintains services from Belgrade to Eindhoven, which is some 125 kilometres from Amsterdam. It operates the route twice per week.

The Dutch low cost carrier will compete against Adria on its service from Amsterdam to Ljubljana. The Slovenian carrier has been running four weekly flights on the route this summer and plans to boost frequencies during the coming winter. Adria also has a codeshare agreement in plave with KLM on its flights between the Slovenian capital and Amsterdam. News of Transavia’s arrival to Ljubljana comes just weeks after easyJet announced plans to launch its second route to the city. Ljubljana Airport is looking for foreign carriers to boost their operations following a decline in passenger numbers over the past few months as a result of Adria Airways’ network reductions.

Further flight information for the Amsterdam – Belgrade service can be found here, while additional details for the Amsterdam – Ljubljana route can be viewed here.

  1. Wow... didn't see this one coming. This could be KL's response to JU's New York flights.

    AMS-BEG flights start on 04.03.2016

    -2-4--7

    AMS-BEG 11.50-14.15
    BEG-AMS 15.10-17.40

    Return flights start from €78.

    Let's see how both JU and W6 respond to this.

    1. AMS-LJU starts on the same day, same frequencies and days and a return flight starts at €68.

      AMS-LJU departs quite early, at around 06.00 am.

    4. It's not only them, there is also Wizz Air to EIN which will be affected by this.

      Would be good to know if they also considered ZAG. Unless they plan, for the time being, to serve it via LJU.

    5. Actually you are right. They are going after Wizz's core base of customers anyway.

    6. Air Serbia was not very successful in competition with LCC till now (there were some good examples, but mostly not). Amsterdam is already harmed by opening JFK, and now this blow would for sure harm AMS route. We could see reduction in AMS route up to 7 per week. Air Serbia should not go to bigger reduction than everyday frequencies even with high competition.

      Delete
    7. Purger, Air Serbia already reduced AMS this winter season from 10 to 7. That is even before Transavia announced its BEG flights.

      Delete
    8. Nemjee I am talking about summer.

      And I don't think they considered ZAG as owner of Transavia is KLM which flies to ZAG every day from AMS. Even more route is very successful. The change flights after one year of flying from E190 to 737-700, but usually fly route with 737-900.

    10. Transavia might impact Wizz Eindhoven connection even more. Why would anyone from central Holland bother to pay extra train costs and lose time when he can fly directly from AMS?

      Delete
    11. Well, central Holland will be fair game for either Wizz Air or Transavia.
      Don't forget that EIN is much cheaper to operate out of meaning W6 can offer lower fares while still making money on the route.

      Also, Wizz Air will not give up that easily and their S17 timetable to EIN shows it.

      1-3-5-7

      BEG-EIN 11.45-14.10
      EIN-BEG 14.40-16.50

      So not only will they offer a greater number of frequencies but they will also have a rather convenient schedule for O&D passengers. Their EIN-BEG fares, even before Transavia announced flights, were quite low, €50 one way.

      What worries me is what will become of Air Serbia on this route. They risk losing most O&D passengers. They are definitely experiencing an increased amount of competition on key routes such as AMS, ZRH and STR. Will be interesting to see how they respond to all this.
      Miles, affordable fares and a decent amount of frequencies should be the best way to fight for the Dutch market.

      Delete
    12. How lower can Wizz go? Two way is 100 euros, while Transavia offers the better service for 70 euros. Transport/parking costs from major Dutch urban centers to and from EIN are not insignificant, at least 20-40 euros extra for return train trip. Plus the passengers are losing several hours to get to and from EIN.

      Delete
    13. The real question is how low can Transavia go? From what I remember their costs are higher than W6's meaning that it will be more difficult for them to match their prices.

      Also, I think you confused the fares. Transavia's one way fare is €78 which means a return flight comes out to be around €160 while Wizz Air from EIN is around €100. This is not a negligible price difference especially for passengers departing from Serbia.

      That said, I think Transavia knows that they can't match Wizz Air hence why they will concentrate on higher-yielding passengers, those who have been mostly flying on JU so far, as well as those who used W6 to EIN but whose final destination was AMS and northern NL.

      Also, from what I've seen, you can get Flying Blue miles on Transavia. This will be interesting for a large number of passengers.

    20. Wizz Air has lower cost base than both Transavia ans Air Serbia.

      Delete
    21. They can have lower cost as much as they want, but Transavia beats their price, while providing much better connection. My prediction is that Wizz will move EIN flights from BEG to INI very soon after Transavia arrives, if not before. There is nothing for them there any more.

      Delete
    22. My prediction is that W6's lower costs will allow them to keep their prices low.

      Transavia is after JU's monopoly to AMS.
      And it will capture a lot of the transfer market to North America currently flying with JU and KLM code-share.

      I also wouldn't be surprised if Transavia announces soon flights to Paris from BEG and other cities in the region that Air France doesn't serve.

      Delete
    23. W6 brought the low cost concept to many Ex-Yu markets and I am very grateful for that. They had a good ride in Ex-Yu, with almost no low cost competition in some markets.
      Everything comes to an end sooner or latter. With the arrival of Ryan and now Transavia, they face a real competition, at least in Serbia and Montenegro. The past predominance is not coming back ever. Good for customers.

      A little observation.

      God how JU and OU superfans can be annoying. Luckily, nobody takes them seriously.

      But what really makes me speechless is the W6 cult. What makes otherwise reasonable and sometimes extremely critical people loose every pretense of objectivity, when it comes to W6 is beyond me.

  11. OT but very important for region concerning huge presence of Lufthansa in it:

    LUFTHANSA POTPISALA JOIN VENTURE SA AIR CHINOM

    Nakon 3 godine intenzivnog pregovaranja (MoU je potpisan 2014), pa čak i lobiranja najvišeg političkog vrha Njemačke u Kini prošle godine, Lufthansa je končano potpisala Join Venture sa Air Chinom. Dio JV je i Austrian te Swiss. JV kreće sa realizacijom sa ljetnim redom letenja 2017. godine.

    JV znači najbližu moguću suradnju, bitno jaču od code-share (sinkronizacija reda letenja, prioritet konekcija preko partnera, prodaju na lokalnom tržištu, održavanje zrakoplova u bazama partnera, zajedničke marketinške akcije...), a isto će odmah rezultirati povečenjem broja code-share linija oba prijevoznika. Od poznatijih JV je onaj Qantasa i Emiratesa, Air France-KLM-Delta-Alitalia, Biritsh-Iberia-American, British-JAL, British-Amercian-Latam...

    Lufthansa uz ovaj JV ima još i JV sa
    - Unitedom i Air Canadom za Sjevernu Ameriku
    - ANA-om
    - Singaporeom

    2. Purger, sta mislis, zasto Transavia nije dosla u Zagreb? Jel to ima nesto vise ili su takse u pitanju?

      Delete
    3. Ma ne. KLM je vlasnik Transavie a lete za Zagreb svaki dan + još 7 letova Croatie u code-share, što znači 14 tjednih letova za AMS.

      Uz to linija je vrlo isplativa i nakon manje od godine dana leta povečali su avion sa E190 na 737-700, iako najčešće lete sa 737-800, a često kada i sa 737-900.

      Tu će se razvijati KLM a ne njihov LCC brand. Tek ako KLM pokrije svoje bazične frekvencije prema AMS može dodati Transaviu kao dodatak radi privlačenja novih kategorija putnika. No, to bi značilo povečanje od 100% na trenutnu situaciju, što se sigurno neće desiti tako skoro.

      Ukoliko vlasnik ZL Zagreb odluči privuči LCC u ZAG otvaranjem novog terminala Transavia je uz easyJet i Eurowings najizvjesnija. Posljednji kao brend Lufthanse, najprisutnijeg prijevoznika u Hrvatskoj, svakako ima ogroman interes, a prva dva imaju baze u ORY, CDG i AMS kojih je vlasnik ADPI, suvlasnik ZAG. Stoga je vrlo lako "uvjeriti" (čitajte ucjenjivati slotovima) da baziraju avio u ZAG bilo kojeg od ovih dva prijevoznika. No i u tom slučaju ZAG bi prije dobio letove za druge destinacije, ali nikako ne i za AMS i CDG, bar ne u idućih par godina, obzirom na ekpanziju KLM-a i AF u ZAG.

    6. Odlično. U code-share su. Kao i sa AF nas CDG. I to kvalitetnijem code-share nego sa LH. LH uvijek prvo puni svoje mašine, a tek potom OU, AF i KL tretiraju OU let kao da je njihov. Kad god kupim kartu sa KL i AF bar 50% letova odradim sa OU iako je karta KL/AF.

      Vrlo često letim za CDG i AMS, više puta godišnje i avioni su stalno puni. Croatia vrlo četo leti sa A320 umjesto A319, KLM sa 737-800 ili čak 900 umjesto 737-700, a AF najleće sa A319 ili A320 umjesto planiranog A318.

      Delete
    7. JU je isto u code-share sa KL i prema poslednjim izjavama, KL je jako zadovoljan. Avioni su gotovo uvek puni.

      Delete
    8. Ovo su jako dobre vesti za Beograd. Transavia je pre svega odgovor na lcc konkurenciju. Ne šalje Lufthansa Eurowings u Beč ili u budućnosti u Zagreb da bi otimao putnike Austrianu i Croatii, već da bi uzela deo LCC tržišta. Tako je i sa Transaviom u Ljubljani i Beogradu. Nadam se da će otvoriti i linije za Pariz uskoro.

    1. When JU launched flights to JFK I wrote on here that it could spell the end of a JU-KL partnership. Given that JU walked away from it by launching its own transatlantic flights, KL had no more reason to 'protect' them by not launching its own flights. Personally, I always thought KL would come with its own metal but it seems that they decided against it.

      That said, there is no reason why they couldn't launch their own flights in the future so as to feed their extensive network to the Americas. Their Embraer is perfect for AMS-BEG.

      Finally, I am sure KL noticed a drop of connecting passengers coming from JU's flights.

      Delete
    2. I fly YYZ-BEG 2-3 per year, always happy with the service, but from what I heard here ASL has a really bad code share agreement with KLM. So if this is enough to push ASL out of that deal then so be it.

    3. Yes, that is true. It's the one Jat signed back in 2009 when Lufthansa started blackmailing them.

      The question here is where are they losing/making more money, on the code-share or on their direct flights to JFK?

    4. Why is there such a concern for competition for JFK here? Transfer pax from BEG via AMS fly to hundreds of destinations besides JFK.

    5. Out of BEG, JFK is the biggest single market in north America. AMS used to be one of the most popular destination for transfer passengers. KL had the most to lose when JU launched their own JFK flights. I am sure that's one of the reasons why AMS was reduced from 10 to 7 this winter.

    6. In the end 1x daily is good enough for AS to AMS. Now there will be some LCC competition which is good.

    7. It is not just about passengers on BEG-JFK route but also connected passengers from BEG via JFK to 3rd destinations in USA and Canada. Why should one connect from BEG to 3rd destinations via AMS if they can do that via JFK? Especially that price on JFK-BEG leg is so low what makes connections affordable.

      Delete
    8. Because JU has an interline agreement in JFK which is much weaker than KL's code-share agreement with DL, not to mention that for KLM it's much easier to offer flexibility to its passengers given that it serves so many different airports in the US- latest addition being Salt Lake City.

      It's the same why JU's direct flights to New York are not a big problem for Lufthansa and its ATI partners. Sure, they lost a share of passengers to New York but the rest of the US and Canada is secure.

      Now, if JU was to sign a code-share agreement with JetBlue or American Airlines then the situation would have been much different.

    2. It's not cheaper than OU flight from ZAG, I fly very often on the OU flight and I always pay 120 - 150 EUR, never payed more in the last 3 years. Its also always cheaper than KL especially when you calculate the fact that the KL price doesnt include luggage

  24. That "if you buy on time" is true only sometimes, and only for travelling in months like November or February.

      The price can peak with every other company, including lccs if you wait for the last minute to buy. If you find such prices, it means that the plane is almost full.

      Ako sledeceg leta ASL bude pokusala da udvostruci cene, putnici uvek imaju opciju da putuju Swissom, Lufthansom, LOTom ili Austrianom za dvestotinak evra, sa sve prtljagom.
      Kraj price.

    6. Congratulations ASL, with 350/400 euros per passenger and full flights! And for years! ASL must have earned millions just on AMS flights. Unbelievable! And I thought Serbia is not a rich country.

    7. Imagine the yields ASL had. JFK flights pale to insignificance compared to AMS, at least according to leteci holandjanin and anon. 2.00

    8. Guys, seriously. Search their prices a bit. ASL is definitely expensive on BEG-AMS.

      Delete
    9. Probably the most profitable route in the world at present, according to data provided by leteci holandjanin. Only JU mistake was not sending whole fleet to AMS each ane every day. So strange that both legacies and lccs ignored such a gold mine for years! Either that or all is a big misleading spin?

  25. SPU ... pitanje za urednika
    Zašto ste promjenili jutarnji članak vezano za SPU ? Mislim da je važnija vijest da je SPU dosegao dva milijuna putnika i priprema novi terminal od vijesti da je HV otvorio nove linije 3x za LJU i BEG i stvorio konkurenciju JP i AS. Shvačam da je potencijal te vijesti za komentiranjem veći , al ako ste jutros donijeli odluku za objavom teksta vezano za SPU nevidim razloga da HV prodiranje u linije AS i JP ima prioritet. Po komentarima na ovaj članak shvaćam vašu odluku al ta vijest je mogla sačekati i sutra. Ja sam svakodnevni korisnik i poštujem vaš trud al suzdržavam se od komentiranja koji je na jako niskom nivou koje i vi posredno ovakvom politikom podržavate. Važnije je ubaciti vijest koja je potencijal za "glođanje" od pozitivnih vijesti jednog rekorda u nemogučim radnim uvjetima tokom ljetnih mjeseci.
    Zahvaljujem i pozdrav SPU :-)

    1. Zato sto je ovo Breaking News i ostali ce prenosti odmah dakle ex-YU mora ostati konkurentan. Isto tako, ceo dan bi se diskutovalo o ovome te bi izgubilo svaki smisao da se prenosi sutra kada je vest vec postala bajata.

    2. @anon 12:36pm:
      I defintately agree with your observation regarding level of comments on this blog.
      Lep pozdrav iz LJU.

    3. Ne shvatam o cemu pricas, danasnja diskusija je sasvim civilizovana a sto je jos interesantnije je to da se vise spominje Hrvatska i Zagreb nego Slovenija i Ljubljana. Dakle ako iko treba da se buni to su onda Slovenci.

      Slzem se sa anon 12.56. Ex-YU nije znao da ce danas biti najavljeni letovi te je objavio vest o SPU. Da je sutra objavio ne bi imalo vise smisla.

    4. SPU ... @anon 12:56 PM :
      Samo bih vas pitao do koga bi to ovaj portal trebao da bude konkurentan ? Publika koja posjećuje ovaj prostor je vjerna iz raznoraznih razloga.Ja zbog informiranja šta se dešava na prostoru ex-yu, netko zbog kvalitetnih debata a netko zbog iživljavanja tipa "moj je veći".To što urednik dozvoljava OT debatu je i veliki uređivački problem po mom mišljenju , al to je njihova odluka kao i zamjena članka . Samo bih nadodao da se na takav način negradi profesionalnost što primjećujem da je želja osnivača ove stranice.

      Delete
    5. @SPU debatama "moj je veći/tvoj je manji" zaista nije mesto ovde, posebno zato što diskutanti često dolaze više zbog prepucavanja nego što ih interesuje tema.
      Po meni bi bilo dobro da danas portal objavi obe vesti, a sutra neka naprave pauzu :D

  26. I guess that DL will codeshare on these Transavia flights. DL already codeshares on many http://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/269062/delta-enlarges-european-codeshare-routes-in-w16/

  27. Return flights from Ljubljana to Amsterdam starting at 58€! Adria 120-130€.

  28. Jako je dobro sto ce jos jedna Aviokompanija doci u BEG a pogotovu sto je HV u pitanju.
    Nece to biti nikakva konkurencija zato sto ASL ne leti za celu USA i CDN zato ce i dalje ostati saradnja sa AF/KL koja je odlicna .
    Bice pre da je ovo saradnja KL i ASL da se poboljsa povezanost.
    I naravno ovo je vise na racun W6 nego ASL.

  31. Voleo bih da čujem od onih koji su tvrdili da će svi pobeći sa BEG zbog cena usluga i monopola JU, sta se to u medjuvremenu dogodilo pa Wizz dovlači dodatni avion i Transavia krece sa letovima?

  34. Ovo uopšte neće biti udarac za ASL. Srpska kompanija zanemarljivo malo prevozi P2P putnika na liniji BEG-AMS vv. To se u potpunosti odnosi na jutarnje polaske iz Beograda koji su svakodnevni, na tim letovima je leti svega oko 15% putnika BEG-AMS, sve ostalo su transferni preko BEG za AMS, a najveći deo nastavlja dalje preko AMS. Sve je to deo strategije Etihada koji ima unosne ugovore sa KLM i AF gde je sa Parizom ista situacija. Iz Beograda za Pariz jako veliki broj ljudi putuje avionima članica Lufthansa Group, a naravno tu je i Wizz.

    1. Ali ugovor AS sa KLM-om postoji pre ulazak Etihad u Jat/AS konstelaciju.

      Delete
    2. I tih 15% putnika (po mojoj proceni vise) ipak jeste udarac. Udarac donekle ublazava to sto za razliku od Air Serbie, Transavia ima tri leta nedeljno.

      Transfer putnici ne idu samo KLMom dalje, vec dolaze preko Beograda sa Balkana i Bliskog istoka u AMS.

      Glavni potencijalni gubitnik je Wizz. Sa trenutnim cenama, u opanosti su da izgube citavo holandsko trziste osim Ajndhovena i okoline. Za putnike je ovo dobitak posto je Transavia bolja kompanija od Wizz a AMS daleko bolji aerodrom od EIN.

    3. Shipol je ogroman aerodrom na kome se jedva snadjes i tesko ga je preci. Veci ne znaci bolji.

      Ajdhovenski je manji i prakticniji i vecina inzenjera iz Srbije radi tamo, a ne u Amsterdamu. Tako da niko odatle nece voziti do Amsterdama zbog leta za BEG.

      Delete
    4. Schiphol jeste ogroman aerodrom, ali ekstremno dobro organizovan. Tako dobro organizovan da se izucava kao primer dobrog dizajna i sto se tice pristupacnosti i sto se tice znakova za putnike, povezanosti terminala. Nema shuttle prevoza kao na drugim velikim hubovima zato sto su to Holandjani dizajnirali za medalju. Sa podzemne zeleznicke stanice ili sa bocnih parkinga ulazis direktno u glavni hol odakle imas neposredan pristup na sve terminale koji se pruzaju zrakasto. Sve to je dodatno medjusobno povezano.

      Prvi put cujem da se tamo neko jedva snalazi. Znam ljude koji rec stranog jezika ne govore i koji su se tamo bez problema snasli, a gubili se na drugim aerodromima.

      Kao sto sa i rekao, EIN ostaje bolji izbor za Ajndhoven i okolinu (ljude koji rade u Philipsu i ostaloj slicnoj industriji). Medjutim, sto se tice glavnih holandskih urbanih centara: Amsterdam, Roterdam, Hag i Utrecht, gde najveci deo populacije, ukljucujuci i ljude iz Srbije, zivi, nothing beats AMS. Na te putnike WZZ slobodno moze da zaboravi od aprila.

  35. Transavia will also fly to SOF and TIA.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think they launched those 6 new destinations because of the eventual U2 expansion. For LJU, they will face JP´s daily flight while BEG it´s going to compete vs 11 weekly JU and 3-4 W6 to EIN. - 15 weekly.
    In SOF it will compete with FB 7x, W6 5x and FR 3x to EIN - 15 weekly.
    In TIA they already fly to ORY and will now add AMS. Simply cool!
