- Luxair added three new European links to its offering during the course of last week, all of which are service resumptions and were launched from its Luxembourg (LUX) base. On 30 March, the flag carrier of Luxembourg resumed services on the 961-kilometre sector to Dublin (DUB) that was last operated in January 2012. This airport pair will be served four times weekly, utilising the airline’s 71-seat Q400s. In addition, on the same day, Luxair inaugurated the 1,345-kilometre sector to Stockholm Arlanda (ARN) after it was last served in June 2004. The service to the Swedish capital will be flown four times weekly, using its 49-seat ERJ 145s. Lastly, on 31 March, it launched thrice-weekly flights to Lisbon (LIS), which will be flown by a mixed fleet of the carrier’s 141-seat 737-700s and 186-seat 737-800s. Only the new link to Portugal, last operated in June 2004, will face direct competition from TAP Portugal’s daily flights and easyJet’s thrice-weekly services.
