Changes are in response to a significant decrease in demand and changes from government mandates in response to coronavirus (COVID-19) are imposing more and more restrictions on Transavia. Therefore, Transavia has decided not to operate scheduled flights between Monday, March 23 and Sunday, April 5 2020. However, even after next Sunday, Transavia will continue to people from abroad so that they can be brought back home.
Transavia advises travelers who want to fly to their home country to book a ticket on one of the flights until March 23, 2020. Passengers whose travel is canceled will receive an email about this.
Flying from Brussels is postponed to next summer
“Because the circumstances are so exceptional now, we have also decided to postpone flying from Brussels this summer 2020 to March 2021. In this way, we will soon be able to fully focus on getting the Dutch bases up and running properly: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Eindhoven Airport and Rotterdam The Hague Airport, ‘says Marcel de Nooijer. Passengers who booked for flights from Brussels will also receive an email”, said in the statement.
Extra flights to bring people home
“Because people have been stranded abroad, we will continue to pick up passengers from abroad, as we have already done in recent days. We have already performed more than thirty extra flights, bringing more than 5,500 people home. And that number is expected to increase in the coming days. “
The restart of the flights depends on the developments surrounding the coronavirus. “The health and well-being of our employees and passengers is always paramount. As soon as the situation changes and the need for travel increases again, we will restart our routes.”
