On 14 November 1966 it was awarded a charter licence to fly from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The first commercial flight took place on 16 November of that same year under the new name of Transavia Holland. In 1991, the year of Transavia's 25th anniversary, it became a subsidiary of KLM.

Since December 2004 its public name has been, changed from Transavia Airlines. The reason for this being that the website had become so important to the company, it was thought this should also be reflected in its name. The company has Amsterdam Airport Schiphol as its home base and transports approximately 4.5 million passengers a year to holiday destinations in Europe and Africa. The fleet consists solely of Boeing 737 aircraft of the Next Generation.
