New summer destination for Sunweb Group and Transavia: the Azores

Schiphol, Thursday 18 November 2021- As of this summer, Transavia and Sunweb Group will open a new route to Ponto Delgada on the Azores. Sunweb Group and Transavia will discover this new destination together and thus strengthen their cooperation. The first flight will be on 24 April 2022 and will operate weekly on Sundays.

The Azores, with its nine islands, are located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and have an unprecedented beauty. With a climate that is almost always mild and pleasant.
