New Route of the Day (29 February 2024): Transavia between Eindhoven and Oslo OSL

EIN-OSL

Transavia commenced a new service between Eindhoven and Oslo OSL on the last day of a leap year February. The 1,035-kilometre route will be maintained 3-weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, increasing to 4-weekly from 30 March with an additional Friday rotation. The airline will deploy the 189-seat 737-800 aircraft between the two cities.

Eindhoven becomes the second Dutch city with flights to the Norwegian capital with KLM, SAS and Norwegian maintaining services between Amsterdam and Oslo OSL. The Dutch flag carrier also operates between Amsterdam and Oslo TRF.

Oslo first destination under Eindhoven’s New Route Support

Eindhoven Airport announced the launch of a new incentive program late last year entitled “New Route Support” to better align its destination network with the needs of businesses and residents in the region.

The support is offered to airlines planning to fly to specific destinations chosen by the airport. Transavia became the first carrier to utilise the New Route Support program for its Oslo OSL service. Eindhoven Airport has a list of twenty eligible destinations for airlines to receive the incentives, including Munich, Zurich, Geneva, Berlin, and Stockholm, among others.

Eindhoven Airport closes in on seven million passengers

Eindhoven Airport handled 6,814,214 passengers in 2023 representing an increase of 8.7% on the previous year, as well as an improvement of 1.4% on its record pre-pandemic 2019 result.

Ryanair was Eindhoven Airport’s largest airline, with just over 3.1 million seats and a capacity share of 40%. Transavia followed suit with 2.4 million seats, while Wizz Air put up just over 1.9 million seats on its Eindhoven flights. During 2023, Malaga, London STN, and Alicante had the most available capacity.

Flight cap coming in 2026

Future growth at Eindhoven Airport will be limited in the coming years. The airport has committed itself to reducing CO2 emissions and noise by 30% by 2030 and will reduce the number of flights from 41,500 to a maximum of 40,500 a year in 2026 and 2027. From 2028, noise levels will be the determining factor in the number of flights. People living in the vicinity of the airport have complained about noise nuisance for years.

Airlines utilising the abovementioned New Route Support incentive will have to reduce operations on an existing route if they wish to commence a new one that falls part of the program so as not to increase the overall number of flights from the airport.
