Construction works are set to get underway by the end of the year to build Cargolux's new headquarters.

Providing office space for administrative staff as well as housing two Boeing 747 simulators, the new building will be linked via a glass bridge to the airline's maintenance hangar in Sandweiler.

Administrative staff are currently spread over several locations but the new headquarters will allow everyone to work under one roof. Cargolux employs almost 1,400 people in Luxembourg, including crew and maintenance staff.

The simulators will be surrounded by glass walls, making them visible to the public.

The new building will be built and owned by Lux-Airport, the management company of Luxembourg airport. Cargolux has committed to a long-term lease contract.

Construction works are set to begin at the end of the year and staff should be able to move into the building in early 2020.

"I’m excited to be able to move ahead with this project that has, until now, gone through a detailed planning phase," Cargolux President and CEO, Richard Forson, said in a statement. "With the new building, we can finally bring together the Cargolux family in one central location at our home base at Luxembourg airport."
