Transavia, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Air France KLM Group, has ordered 17 Boeing 737-800s, including options for three additional airplanes.

The order is valued at US$1.6 billion at current list prices.

The order will significantly support the growth of Transavia's operations from France and the Netherlands. The airline currently has a combined all-Boeing fleet of 45 Next-Generation 737s.

"We have grown to become one of the leading low cost carriers in France and the Netherlands by effectively utilizing the unrivalled economics and unmatched reliability of the Next-Generation 737," said Bram Graber, CEO, Transavia Company. "This latest order will provide us with a solid platform to grow our business, while offering our passengers outstanding value and comfort."

Todd Nelp, vice president of European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, added, "Transavia has been operating 737s since the mid-1970s and it is a testament to the outstanding qualities of the 737 family that four decades of this airplane will remain the backbone of its fleet in the years to come."

Transavia has six bases with Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport and Paris-Orly Airport being its main hubs. The airline serves 110 destinations in Europe and North Africa. Passenger numbers reached 10 million in 2014.
