Transavia to pull out of Denmark

Transavia announced plans to end its operations in Denmark after two years of operating to/from the country (Copenhagen Post, 21-Sep-2010). The carrier plans to terminate all Danish operations by 01-Nov-2010, although some routes may continue until 01-Apr-2011. Transavia CEO, Michiel Meijer, said that decision is due to the airline not meetings its targets for the first two years of operations, with local overcapacity making it too difficult to perform profitably. The airline entered the Danish market following the collapse of Danish low cost carrier Sterling in 2008.
