Luxair launches only direct London to Antwerp service
Luxair service from London City to Antwerp
Luxair has launched a new route between London City Airport and Antwerp. The route is operated four times weekly with a 78-seat De Havilland Dash DHC-8-Q400. The service will increase to five times weekly from April.
The route restarts as London City is preparing further investments into its passenger proposition, including the installation of the latest, state-of-the-art security scanners on all lanes by April and investing £12 million in upgrading the departures area, offering more restaurants, an expanded duty free, and more seats.
“We have long coveted restarting the Antwerp route and I am delighted that Luxair sees its potential, not least because it will be the only direct connection between these two dynamic, culturally rich, European cities,” said Anne Doyere, Director of Aviation, London City Airport. “The pandemic eroded some of London’s direct connections to European cities and we believe restarting them will not only be good for passengers, but for business and the economy too. We are looking forward to working with airlines like Luxair, chambers of commerce and businesses of all sizes to help build the case for more routes to and from London’s fastest, most convenient and reliable airport.”
