Luxair – Flight and Travel Information
Operating out of Luxembourg's Findel Airport, Luxair serves more than 50 destinations around Europe and North Africa with its 15-strong fleet.
Travellers onboard a Luxair flight will find themselves well-catered for, with numerous signs that this is very much a family-friendly airline. For example, infants will be provided with a special seat belt which allows them to sit on their parent's knee throughout the flight, ensuring a comfortable journey for young passengers.
Meanwhile, children between the ages of two and 11 will find plenty to keep them occupied for the duration of the flight, with cabin crew on hand to supply them with colouring books, pens and games.
The entertainment for youngsters does not end there, as on the carrier's Boeing 737-700 services, kids will be kept amused with a selection of cartoons.
Meanwhile, the airline takes the hassle out of travel thanks to its online check-in. Passengers can check in for their flights between 24 and two hours before departure, meaning that they can have a more relaxing journey to the airport.
Luxair started life as the Luxembourg Airlines Company in 1948, with a royal charter as the official airline of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
In 1961 Luxembourg Airlines was re-branded as Luxair, a new dynamic airline ready to meet the challenges presented by the country, and indeed the continent's, new and dynamic economy.
The airline that was born out of the arrival of EU institutions and would go on to become a truly pan-European airline.
Luxair's first official flight was between Luxembourg and Paris in 1962, flying a rented Fokker Friendship F27.
This event and the purchase of the airline's first aircraft, also a Fokker Friendship, marked the start of a period of rapid growth.
By 1967 the airline owned four aircraft and by 1970 Luxair had brought its first jet plane, a Toulouse built Caravelle, designed by Sud Aviation, who later played a key role in the Airbus project.
Luxair bought its first Boeing, a 737, in 1997 and throughout the 70s and 80s continually updated its fleet with the newest Boeings, Fokkers and Embraers.
The last of Luxair's turboprops was given a fond farewell in 1997, as the airline began a new era - the all-jet age.
Luxair expanded its fleet of Embraer 145s in 1998 and as the aircraft were phased in on routes to Frankfurt, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Milan and Manchester the aircraft swiftly became known as the Eurojet.
President and chief executive of Luxair, Adrien Ney, explained the nickname: "This name underlines the European character of our company.
"The Eurojet allow[s] us to expand our route network with more departures from Luxembourg Airport, an airport that will develop into a hub for regional air traffic in Europe.
Further expansions have been carried out since the turn of the 21st century. This includes the order of two new Boeing 737-700s in 2003 and the addition of a third 737-700 a year later.
The carrier now has a fleet of 15 aircraft, including six Embrarer ERJ 145s, three Boeing 737-700s, two Embrarer ERJ 135LRs, three Bombardier Dash 8 Q400s and one Boeing 737-500.
It uses these jets to transport passengers to 53 destinations. The majority of these are in Europe and include routes to countries such as France, the UK, Ireland, Greece, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Switzerland. These serve cities such as London, Dublin, Vienna, Geneva, Paris, Nice, Prague, Berlin, Munich, Rome and Barcelona.
Meanwhile, the carrier also serves North Africa, with routes to Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco. These flights, all of which are seasonal, allow passengers to travel to destinations including Sharm el Sheik, Marrakech and Tunis.
Those choosing to take a business class Luxair flight will find that the carrier caters superbly for its customers. Passengers have a baggage allowance of up to 30kg, a wide selection of onboard drinks, dedicated check-in counters at most airports, comfortable seating and access to the Luxembourg Airport Courtesy Lounge.
Meanwhile, economy passengers will be kept amused throughout the flight thanks to the onboard entertainment system. This consists of eight audio channels which pump out a wide variety of music, while the onboard screens show feature films on flights over three hours, as well as cartoons and comedy television programmes.
The airline also has flyer reward schemes in place, such as its Dynamic Miles initiative. Frequent flyers can attain points which can be used with the company's partner carriers and for other holiday essentials such as car hire and hotel accommodation, meaning that those opting for a Luxair route can get more than just great service from their flight.
