Additional flights to Dublin and London
(CS) Expats from the UK and Ireland can look forward to next year, when Luxair will add more flights to its London and Dublin routes during the summer season.
An additional midday flight will be added to the London City route between April and October, bringing the number of daily connections on weekdays up to seven. Dublin meanwhile will see the number of weekly flights go up from four to six during this time.
Travellers to Stockholm can also look forward to two additional connections next summer. Like Dublin, there will be one daily departure except Saturdays.
Luxair is currently the only airline operating direct flights to Stockholm and Dublin from lux-Airport. On the London route it has competition from British Airways, which connects to Heathrow, and easyJet, which flies to Gatwick.
London is the only destination in the UK accessible with a direct flight from Luxembourg.
Further destinations to get an upgrade for the summer are Hamburg, Venice and Bari.
A spokesperson for Luxair commented that there is no information yet whether the additional flights could be continued beyond the summer season.
Additionally, a new Boeing 737 for the fleet will increase capacity on existing routes to Rome, Nice, Madrid, Munich and Barcelona.
The increase in connections and capacity, paired with more competitive prices, forms part of Luxair's mission to bring passenger numbers up to 1.2 million next year, having reached a record one million passengers in 2014 already.
