Luxair acquires two more Boeing 737-700 to expand its network
Luxembourg - Next year, Luxair will add two Boeing 737-700 to the fleet. The aircraft are purchased to increase the flights on popular routes. According to Luxair, both planes currently fly for an undisclosed major European airline.
The Boeing 737-700s will be delivered next year in March and May respectively. They will join a fleet consisting of two Boeing 737-700, four Boeing 737-800, and 11 Bombardier Q400.
Upon the arrival of the new 737s, the network will be ready for an expansion in the summer season of 2019 with the new destinations Marsa Alam (Egypt), Zracna Luka Split (Croatia) and Mahon (Spain).
In the winter of 2018/2019, Ras al Khaimah (UAE) and Marrakech (Morocco) will be added. The flights to Turin (Italy) and Stockholm (Sweeden) will be discontinued.
This investment will help Luxair to stabilize its network and reduce the adverse effect of disruptions especially caused by Air traffic control and ground handling strikes in Europe, according to the carrier.
