Are they selling seats only or are there also contracts with French tour operators for IT packages?

They'll serve both markets, just like Transavia.com in the Netherlands.

Are the B738s configured at 189 seats or will they have less seats?


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

Is that colorscheme official? AFAIK it is just a dream spun off this very website.

They actually really do some projects (and realisations) on the request from Airlines, and others.

I don't think this colorsheme is official. As they say on their website : "Although it would please the French public it's unlikely that transavia.com is going to change it's French based fleet into the French national colours because of transavia's neutral aircraft paint design. Wearing the Air France KLM group logo on the aircraft nose section could be considered though".

On the other hand, it's not really "Transavia's French base". It's an Air France's subsidiary built with the help of another AFKL subsidiary : Transavia.
Air France owns the majority in this new airline with 60%... so maybe ....

Well, according to the information they share with the Dutch press, it will actually be a French base of Transavia, operated by the Transavia methods; the reason why AF will have 60% of the shares is to have traffic rights to Tunesia and Egypt.

That's funny, because in France, the French medias are all talking about "the launch by Air France of a new Low cost subsidiary" etc ...

That's the twist of national pride that can be found in any journalist.

The official press release of AF-KL indicated that it's somewhere in between. (what a surprise). Some quotes:

Quote:
Our aim is to achieve maximum synergies with transavia.com in the Netherlands. This will entail seeking the most efficient operating conditions, in accordance with the French regulatory framework. Purchasing and selected operations may therefore be handled by the Dutch teams within the framework of the Jar Ops regulation



Quote:
The inflight product will be the same as for transavia.com, where passengers will pay for food and beverages but systematic and free-of-charge seat assignment.

But also

Quote:
Due to French legal requirements, the legal, financial and staff management teams will be located in France. Similarly, the sales and marketing teams will be French and liase with transavia.com in the Netherlands to ensure that policies are coherent.

and perhaps more important even, a French chairman:

Quote:
Christian Boireau, Executive Vice President Commercial France, Air France, has been appointed chairman of the new airline's supervisory board.
