Low-cost-carrier Transavia/Basiq Air today announced that it is in talks with Sterling (Denmark), Hapag-Lloyd (Germany) and Volare (Italy) to create a LCC-alliance.
The airlines are currently looking into what kind of form the alliance needs to be. Joint operations at some destinations could be an option, as the airlines fly to many same destinations. One check-in counter, catering, etc at this destination would be things that could be consolidated.
In addition to the news yesterday, Transavia will probably be renamed into Basiq Air. The name Basiq Air is more widely known in Europe and clearly displays the sort of operations.
