Following a Board of Directors meeting last Friday, 28 April, Luxembourg carrier Luxair has confirmed the purchase of two additional Boeing 737-8 aircraft.

These two additional aircraft will supplement two Boeing 737-8 aircraft already purchased by the airline in March 2023, bringing Luxair’s total number of firm orders for the Boeing 737-8 to four.

With regards to fleet support coming into the summer peak travel season, Luxair had also previously secured an immediate fleet increase based on two Boeing 737-8 aircraft under a leasing agreement.

The two leased aircraft will enter into service in the summer season of 2023 and will be operated until 2027.

All of these aircraft are to be operated by Luxair crews. Luxair is committed to investing in more modern and fuel-efficient aircraft to provide customers with a more comfortable flying experience.

With the modern and fuel-efficient ‘next generation’ aircraft, Luxair will be able to offer more comfortable flights and expand its network of destinations, providing even more options to its customers.

The purchase of these new Boeing 737-8 aircraft and the leasing agreement for additional planes demonstrate Luxair’s commitment to providing always better services to its clients.

Luxair thanked its Board of Directors for the renewal of their trust in investing in the future of the company and states that it looks forward to continuing to provide excellent services to its customers with these new Boeing 737-8 aircraft.
