Over the past few days, several airlines have revealed increased ambitions for the France-Algeria route. The latest player to increase its offer on this strategic market – for business, leisure and affinity customers – Transavia will soon offer more than 50 flights per week. From Paris Orly,Air France ‘s low-cost carrier will fly to Algiers, Constantine and Oran, as well as Tlemcen. This last route, a first for Transavia, will make its debut on August 1. Transavia will operate this route three times a week. Another new Transavia service will start two days later, on August 3, with two weekly flights between Montpellier and Oran. In addition, Transavia will connect Montpellier, Lyon and Nantes to Algiers, with Lyon also connecting to Oran.
This flight program – and in particular the two new routes – had to wait for the end of the health crisis. But also new authorizations issued by the Algerian authorities. Transavia’s management also warns that the company’s offer could evolve in the near future: ” We are delighted to be able to offer more travel options to our customers wishing to travel this summer between France and Algeria,” says Nicolas Hénin, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing for Transavia France. As soon as the authorities announced, we were keen to develop our flight program, which is still evolving.
This rise in Transavia’s power on the Algerian market will be echoed within the parent company: Air France is also counting on a reinforced presence by targeting two destinations: Algiers and Oran. The offer has already increased from 20 to 29 weekly flights since June 13. And will reach 48 weekly services from July 4. Four French airports will be linked by Air France to Algiers. The offer from the two Paris airports will be particularly dense with 19 flights per week at Paris CDG and 14 at Orly. As for Marseille and Toulouse, the two hubs will respectively offer five and two weekly flights. The Ahmed Ben Bella airport in Oran will be connected five times a week to Paris-CDG (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday), and three times to Toulouse (Tuesday, Friday and Sunday).
Strasbourg airport will also be concerned by the densification of the offer on the France-Algeria route. Tassili Airlines announced in mid-June the reopening of international routes from and to Strasbourg. The Algerian company will resume its operations from Monday, June 27. It will connect Algiers to the Alsatian airport by Boeing 737 800NG, every Monday and Thursday. In addition, Tassili Airlines will offer a flight to Constantine every Saturday, and to Oran every Thursday. ” After two years of suspension of flights to Algeria for health reasons, I am pleased with the resumption of flights by Tassili Airlines, especially since the demand of travelers for flights from Strasbourg to various Algerian destinations is significant, “said Renaud Paubelle, Chairman of the Board of the company.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
