Transavia Airlines (HV, Amsterdam Schiphol) has taken delivery of its first A321-200N all the while its French sister carrier, Transavia France (TO, Paris Orly), is due to shortly induct its first A320-200N.

PH-YHZ (msn 11702) is the first of seven A321-200N due on lease from Air Lease Corporation. It was initially due to deliver to Amsterdam Schiphol on December 7, 2023, but the plan was delayed by mechanical damage at the manufacturer's site. Despite the formal handover taking place on December 15, the Dutch low-cost carrier will only ferry the aircraft to Amsterdam Schiphol on December 19.

Meanwhile, A320neo F-GNEO (msn 11918) has already been painted into Transavia France's livery and operated its first flight on December 15, 2023 (still as F-WWDD), ch-aviation research revealed.

Transavia Airlines currently operates an all-Boeing fleet comprising four B737-700s and forty B737-800s (including ten on lease from Air Lease Corporation), while Transavia France's fleet comprises seventy-one B737-800s, the ch-aviation fleets module shows. It will transition to an all-Airbus fleet following the order for 100 A320neo Family aircraft, with a further 60 options, placed by its parent holding, Air France-KLM. The aircraft are due to be split between Transavia Airlines, Transavia France, and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL, Amsterdam Schiphol), with no disclosed plans to place any of them with Air France (AF, Paris CDG). The aircraft ordered directly from the manufacturer will be supplemented by more dry-leased units.

The deliveries of the aircraft directly from the manufacturer are currently expected to begin in the second quarter of 2024.
