Bordeaux is one of the least affected areas in France from coronavirus
Speaking to anna.aero, Jean-Luc Poiroux, VP Business Development, Bordeaux Airport, said:
“I am very pleased to see that Luxair will – for the first time ever – serve Bordeaux.
Bordeaux has many well-known attractions that convinced Luxair to launch this route. The high quality of life; the high standard of touristic sites of our region, some of them prehistorical; the culture of gastronomy developed around our Bordeaux wine; and 200 kilometres of ocean beaches.
In addition, our Bordeaux region has been one of the least touched by the coronavirus crisis in France and in Europe and I note Luxair’s positive reactiveness to create a new operation to a region that offers a great quality-safeness ratio.”
Luxair will complement easyJet’s service to Bordeaux
Luxair’s new twice-weekly Bordeaux service will complement easyJet’s existing four-weekly operation. Since 2018, around 60,000 passengers – primarily originating in Luxembourg – have now used easyJet’s service.
