Transavia Brings Low-Cost Air Travel to Europe

Transavia emerged from humble beginnings as a charter service launched in the Netherlands in 1965. Its maiden flight traveled from Amsterdam to Naples and back carrying the Dutch Ballet Orchestra and the Dutch Dance Theatre. The company took off when it was acquired as a joint venture of KLM and Air France and began providing low-cost airfare to countries across Europe filling an emerging demand.

Sky’s the Limit with NetSuite

Innovation powers growth
Transavia underwent steady growth as it expanded routes across Europe and today now serves 250 total destinations. The company was able to power its growth by embracing technology and providing customers with digitally powered customer service and innovative in-flight experiences.
AS 400, Infor systems not up to task
As Transavia expanded its footprint, it soon realised that an aging AS 400 system based in its office in the Netherlands and an Infor system in France would not be able to scale with its ambitious plans for growth.
Cloud ERP the right choice for airline
NetSuite OneWorld with its multi-currency, multi-language capabilities and ability to manage multiple subsidiaries on a single instance proved to be the right solution. Additionally, its cloud-based architecture fit in well with Transavia’s commitment to low overhead and modern, streamlined operations.
Streamlined business operations
With NetSuite, the 21,000 invoices that were once hand copied into the system are now automated, while learnings from the implementation have enabled Transavia to introduce more structure and efficiencies while spending more time on analysis.
