      Hello all,

      I was thinking about the merge (take-over) between Air France and KLM and I am curious about the future of Martinair, of which 50% is owned by KLM and 50% by Nedloyd, and Transavia, which is also owned by KLM but I don't know the percentages.

      So will those 2 airlines stay or will their aircraft be painted white with the red-blue stripe tails?

      Daco 737-300 VARIG
      Challenger CL-604

      Bas, so far every airline KLM and AF will remain their identity.
      And as promised by officials form both parties it should remain like this i.e KLM will remain blue.
      Well as far as I can see Martinair and Transavia will also remain in thier liveries.

      regards,
      Ahmad

      Bas,

      Transavia Airlines is 100% owned by KLM. After the take over it's uncertain if Transavia Airlines stays with KLM, but will keep there own identity. At this moment the struggle is going on to keep the name used by the founder or change it to Basiq-Air. I do work for this company for the last 36 years, so I hope they keep there original name.
