Luxair continues to maintain a core schedule despite massive travel challenges

Luxair has issued this statement:

During the fourth tripartite aviation sector meeting, Luxair presented the current situation and its forecasts for 2021.

While it is currently still possible to travel, the demand for travel is falling sharply. The health measures introduced in almost all the countries served by Luxair are obviously having an impact on customer behavior, and cancellations are increasing.

In this context, the airline and the tour operator are striving to offer products and services adapted to the situation and requirements.

Indeed, Luxair has noted a significant number of customers expressing their confidence in the measures taken by the entire travel industry. Last week, some 300 people still booked holidays with LuxairTours, taking advantage of the ideal period to travel to the Canary Islands. A destination that customers can fully enjoy at the moment.

Furthermore, to support the mobility needs of its customers, Luxair maintains an optimized flight operation and continues to guarantee the connection of Luxembourg with European and further afield destinations for the period November-December 2020. Luxair will strengthen its flight offer for the Christmas period, notably to Cape Verde, Egypt, Djerba, Austria and Montenegro. Security and flexibility drive all strategic decisions taken by Luxair.

As Luxair plays a decisive role in the economy of the Grand Duchy and the Greater Region, this same connectivity will be enhanced next year by the addition of new destinations, including Usedom, Toulon, La Rochelle and Thessaloniki.

From spring onwards, Luxair will connect Luxembourg to more than eighty destinations. This is an essential service to guarantee the connection of foreign communities in Luxembourg to their home countries, particularly with Portugal, Spain and Italy, to promote exchanges between the main European economic centers such as London, Geneva, Berlin, Paris and Milan, and to meet the travel demand, which persists despite the situation.
