The European Commission (EC) took Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg and Sweden to the European Court of Justice and sent a "reasoned opinion" to Slovakia for failure to comply with legislation on air passenger rights. "We are determined to ensure that the rights of European passengers are dealt with effectively in all the member states," stated (EC) VP for Transport Jacques Barrot.

The European Union (EU) regulation, which entered into force on February 17, 2004, stipulates that member states must establish an effective system of penalties vis-a-vis airlines that infringe on the provisions regarding additional protection of air passengers. To date, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg and Sweden have not established rules on the penalties applicable to infringements despite "several" reminders from the (EC). Slovakia has not yet provided the (EC) with the requisite information on the setting of sanctions.

Separately, the (EC) said it sent a reasoned opinion, the last step before a formal complaint is lodged to the Court of Justice, to Greece for failure to respect (EU) legislation on the establishment of a national supervisory authority in the context of the Single European Sky (SES). The European regulation, which entered into force in April 2004, sets up the institutional framework for the (SES). It requires separation between the provision of air navigation services on the one hand and the supervision and regulation of these services on the other. Greece has failed to establish an independent national supervisory authority to assume the tasks identified by the legislation including certification of air navigation service providers and ongoing compliance oversight.

Also, the (EC) confirmed it will take Latvia to the Court of Justice for failing to introduce European legislation on the introduction of noise-related operating restrictions at (EU) airports.

February 2006: Luxair (LUX) said its scheduled airline is in a "fragile situation" and is expected to lose approximately -€12 million/-$14.4 million in 2005. The company began reducing (LUX)'s schedule in October and has pared the number of annual flights by -1.7%. During the year, the number of scheduled passengers dropped -1.6% to 808,863 and load factor climbed +0.7 point to 51.5% LF. Its Luxair (LUX) Tour Operating and Cargo Handling subsidiaries are expected to turn a profit for 2005. This year is expected to be a "year of transition" for the company, which will continue to give its business lines more autonomy while finalizing a new business plan for the airline featuring "a new philosophy to its regular flights by targeting the efficiency of its fleet and route network [and] a more attractive fare structure." (LUX) operates a mix of 737NGs, Classics and ERJs.

May 2006: Luxair (LUX) reported a net profit of +€5.5 million/+$7.1 million in 2005, down from earnings of +€13.4 million in 2004, ending its "year of transition." Its airline unit lost -€11.7 million, a deficit that was made up by its "booming" tour operation business and handling services unit.

(LUX) said the earnings decline largely was due to €15 million "taken as a provision to finance the social aspect of the ongoing restructuring program," dubbed "Building a New Airline," which aims to return the airline segment to profitability by 2008. The initiative includes -210 staff redundancies, streamlining the route network, and "structural changes aimed at the reduction of production costs and the increase of revenue."

Group turnover increased +6.4% to €325.6 million from €306 million and operating expenses rose +4.7% to €334.9 million. Operating profit fell -17.9% to +€3.2 million. Passenger numbers were up just +0.9% to 1.18 million as passenger traffic climbed +4% to 1.19 billion (RPK)s. Load factor rose +4.1 points to 65.7% LF.

Restructuring policies for 2006 include adding 70/90-seat RJs to the fleet, which will shrink from 10 ERJs and five 737s at year end 2005 to 12 airplanes at the end of 2006. Route consolidation and code sharing, revamped marketing and fare structures and maximizing traffic from the UK, Spain, Switzerland and Italy also are among (LUX)'s goals.

June 2006: Luxair (LUX) named Laurent Jossart, Executive VP Finance, replacing the retiring Jean-Pierre Walesch. Alberto Kunkel is the new Senior VP, Tour Operating.

3/3 orders (2007-02) Dash 8-Q400's.

September 2006: Luxair (LUX) is moving its operations at Nice Cote d'Azur from Terminal 2 to the smaller and partially renovated Terminal 1 on October 1. Handling services will be provided by MAP Handling.

Luxair (LUX) signed an exclusive nine-year time and material contract with Snecma Services for Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) of its six (CFM56-7)s.

October 2006: The European Commission (EC) sent a reasoned opinion, the last step before a formal complaint to the European Court of Justice is lodged, to Luxembourg for failing to implement the 2003 legislation, that calls for common basic standards on aviation security measures at (EU) airports. "Commission inspections at Luxembourg airport have established that some security measures have not been fully implemented in compliance with Community standards and some of the identified deficiencies have not yet been rectified," the (EC) noted, adding, "The implementation of common basic standards and related security measures therefore remain a major concern at Luxembourg airport."

December 2006: Starting April 2nd, Luxembourg - Paphos, 1/week, using 737-700s.

May 2007: Luxair (LUX), which comprises the airline, a tour operator and a cargo handling division, posted a 2006 net profit of +€16.9 million/+$22.7 million, more than the triple the +€5.5 million earned in 2005. Revenues increased +2.4% to €333.5 million. The airline division managed to halve its 2005 loss, the company said, although the figure was not released. Operating loss was -€6.4 million, while passenger numbers fell -2.5% to 1.18 million, and load factor was up +2 points to 67.7% LF.

(LUX) initiated a reorganization program dubbed "Building a new airline" last summer with the aim of returning the airline division to profitability. "The arrival of the new Dash 8-Q400 airplanes will increase the operational cost-efficiency and will also allow the airline to introduce a more dynamic fare structure . . . thus permitting the airline to break even financially in 2008," it stated. The first two Dash 8-Q400s are scheduled to enter service in June and July and the third in September. As of the summer season, the carrier's four 737s are dedicated exclusively to holiday flights operated by Luxair (LUX) Tours. Its three F 50s left the fleet last year.

Discover the multiple aspects of Luxembourg’s capital, which has been a city for more than a millennium! It is a wonderful feeling to stroll along the ‘Corniche’ city ramparts and see the fortress and old town, which have been designated a (UNESCO) world heritage site since 1994. Opposite is the ‘Plateau de Kirchberg’ with its resolutely contemporary buildings of glass and steel, which contain European institutions and international financial companies! Works by some of the worlds best known architects are located here, including the ‘Philharmonie’ designed by Christian Portzamparc (architect of the ‘Cité de la Musique’ in Paris), the ‘Coque’ sports and cultural complex in the shape of a shell designed by Roger Taillibert and the ‘Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean’ designed by architect I M Pei, which opened its doors on July 1st 2006.

During the second half of the 20th century, Luxembourg became a center for new and dynamic affairs, with a strategic location. On an economic level, Luxembourg is a center of employment of international standing, being both multi-lingual and multi-cultural. Formerly known for its steel industry, the country has become one of the world’s most important financial centers with more than 160 banks. Furthermore, important European institutions are located here (the offices of the European Parliament, the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Auditors and the European Investment Bank).

Over the area of 2,586 sq km, visitors can explore a surprising range of different landscapes. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is divided into five tourist regions, which are all easily accessible from the capital. The abbey city of Echternach is located in the region known as Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, and is one of Luxembourg’s most popular tourist destinations. In addition to its rich religious and cultural past, Echternach also appeals to shopping enthusiasts as shops stay open here on a Sunday afternoon. A visit to Luxembourg’s Ardennes region is also recommended, situated to the north of the country. Various medieval castles here such as Vianden, Clervaux, Esch-sur-Sûre and Bourscheid provide spectacular views across the valley. Along Luxembourg’s wine route, which stretches for 42 km along the banks of the Moselle, a visit to the wine and crémant wine cellars can easily be combined with a boat trip to the town of Schengen, which gave its name to the famous ‘Schengen Agreement’ relating to the abolition of customs controls in 1985. Just fifteen minutes drive from the city of Luxembourg is the ‘Land of the Red Earth,’ which attracts many enthusiasts of industrial tourism. Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg’s second city, offers visitors a combination of shopping and numerous historical buildings.

The short distance between Luxembourg and the neighboring cities of bordering countries enables visitors to explore the ‘Greater Region,’ which will form an active part of the ‘Luxembourg, European capital of culture 2007’ program (www.luxembourg2007.org).

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has become one of Europe’s biggest centers of gourmet cuisine. In 2007, ten of Luxembourg’s restaurants were awarded Michelin stars!

June 2008: Luxair (LUX) narrowed its full-year loss to -€860,000/-$1.3 million in 2007. It did not provide the year-ago result. It cited the addition of three Dash 8-Q400s, implementation of a "new, clear, transparent pricing structure," expanded e-ticketing and route rationalization for the improvement. Parent LuxairGroup, which counts the airline as one of four subsidiaries, reported a profit of +€18.2 million.

August 2008: The Luxair (LUX) Group board approved the purchase of an additional Dash 8-Q400 and said it will decide on the purchase of a fifth Dash 8-Q400 at the end of September.

"All LuxairGroup activities experienced daunting regressions in business and revenue" in 2009, President & (CEO), Adrien Ney said. "We [have] registered some stabilization and even a slight climb in early 2010, but this won't be able to bring us back to pre-crisis levels yet." He added that volcanic ash-related airspace closures "will certainly mark the 2010 balance sheet."

June 2010: The Luxair Group announced it placed an order for one 737-800. Luxair (LUX) said the airplane's size and range will enable it to "optimize operations" for its tour operator LuxairTours. The order is valued at $77 million.

January 2012: Luxair (LUX) has ordered four additional DHC-8-400s and has secured options for four more as part of an initially undisclosed order placed back in August. It has started code sharing on Hahn Air’s twice weekly Cessna Citation CJ4 service between Luxembourg and Dusseldorf International.

July 2012: Luxair’s (LUX) future remains unclear after the state of Luxemburg bought a 12.09% stake from Swiss forwarding and logistics specialist, Panalpina for an undisclosed sum. “Currently, we can’t say what will happen with our shares in (LUX). The future will tell,” Dany Frank, spokesperson of Ministère du Développement durable et des Infrastructures said.

It is also unclear if the state wants to increase its shares. “This question is currently not on the agenda,” he said. Local media reports have said the sale increases Luxembourg’s direct and indirect Luxair (LUX) stake to 60%.

Nevertheless, (LUX) remains one of the smallest flag carriers in Europe. In a tough environment for European airlines, the future for (LUX) looks challenging. “(LUX) is evaluating the development of its strategy to be able to compete best against other carriers in the future,” the spokesperson added.

Panalpina disposed of the shares as part of a clean-up of its portfolio, although the move will not affect its operations from Luxembourg’s Cargo Center where it employs 185 staff.

“With the sale of the Luxair (LUX) stake, Panalpina has adjusted its portfolio by the only not fully-consolidated shareholding,” said a Panalpina spokesman.

“The State has not yet announced how many shares it will keep and how many shares will be held by Banque et Caisse d’Epargne de l’Etat, which is a State-run bank,” he said.

Before the Panalpina sale, the State of Luxembourg held 26.85% of LG and the Banque et Caisse d’Epargne de l’Etat held a further 21.81%. The remaining shares were held by Dexia (13.14%), Lufthansa (DLH) (13.00%), Panalpina (12.09%), Luxair Group and others (13.11%).

August 2012: The navAero tBag C22 computer and display hardware has been chosen as the electronic flight bag (EFB) flight deck hardware by Luxair (LUX) to equip (LUX)'s 737-700/800, Dash 8-Q400 and ERJ145 fleets.

Dual networked installations of the navAero tBagC22 hardware systems, which includes built-in (HSDPA)/(UMTS)/(GRPS)/(EDGE) for wireless connectivity, will be installed on the airplane flight decks. The (EFB) (CPU)s will incorporate solid state drives with Windows 7 as the operating system. The installations will also incorporate the navAero Aircraft Interface Device (AID) for certified connectivity to airplanes for gathering (ARINC) 429 and 717 data with (QAR) functionality.

navAero will be providing Supplemental Type Certification (EASA STC) for each airplane type. Deployments on the Luxair (LUX) fleets will start during early 4th quarter, 2012 beginning with the Dash 8-Q400 airplanes and are scheduled to be completed by early 2nd quarter 2013.

November 2012: Thales (THL) has a seven-year avionics-by-the-hour contract from Luxair (LUX) to continue to provide avionics support and services for (LUX)’s fleet of six Dash 8-400 airplanes.

March 2013: The national airline of Luxembourg, Luxair (LUX), operates a fleet of 17 airplanes; two 737-800s (186 seats), three 737-700s (141 seats), six Dash 8-Q400s (76 seats), and six ERJ-145s (49 seats). Apart from serving many major European cities (including Frankfurt, Geneva, London, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris, and Vienna) with regular scheduled flights, (LUX) operates a fairly extensive program on behalf of LuxairTours, increasing the number of destinations it serves in August to around 50, though almost 30 of these are served just once or twice per week. According to (LUX) it also has code share agreements with AirFrance (AFA), Alitalia (ALI), Austrian (AUL), (LOT), Lufthansa (DLH), and Turkish Airlines (THY). The most extensive collaboration is with Lufthansa (DLH) (which owns 13% of the airline) and Luxair (LUX) passengers can collect "Miles & More" bonus miles on all services.

August 2013: (KLM) UK (AUK) Engineering will perform heavy maintenance checks on two 737NGs owned by Luxair (LUX).

October 2013: European Regions Airline Association (ERAA) named (KLM) Cityhopper (AUK) Managing Director, Boet Kreiken as its new President. Martin Isler of the Luxair (LUX) Group was re-elected VP.

Luxair (LUX) has placed a firm order for a Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 NextGen turboprop, a $32.2 million purchase at current list prices. Along with the firm order, (LUX) signed an agreement for an option for an additional Dash 8-Q400 NextGen airplane, which would increase the value to the purchase to $65.78 million if confirmed. (LUX) currently operates a fleet of six Dash 8-Q400s.

Bombardier (BMB) now has a total of 476 firm orders for Dash 8-Q400 and Dash 8-Q400 NextGen turboprops.

August 2014: Following the reorganization of Luxembourg Airlines, Luxair (LUX) was born in 1961 to meet the growing demand for air services between Luxembourg (which had become the seat of several important institutions) and other European cities. Nonetheless, (LUX) began its first operations in April 1962, when it launched flights on the Luxembourg - Paris (CDG) airport pair utilizing a Fokker F27 Friendship. (LUX) (in which Lufthansa (DLH) has a 13% stake) along with LuxairTours, LuxairCARGO and LuxairServices are part of the LuxairGroup (a key player in the economy of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the surrounding Greater Region). Therefore, apart from serving many major European cities (including Frankfurt, Geneva, London, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris, and Vienna) with regular scheduled flights, (LUX) also operates a fairly extensive program on behalf of LuxairTours.

Based at Luxembourg Findel Airport, Luxair (LUX) serves over >50 destinations in 19 countries within Europe and North Africa. With a current fleet of 18 airplanes, including three 737-700s (141Y seats), two 737-800 (186Y seats), seven Dash 8-Q400s (76Y seats) and six ERJ-145s (49Y seats), (LUX) has been growing remarkably in recent years, as analysis of seat capacity indicates that around 57,000 weekly seats will be offered this August, +36% more, when compared to the corresponding period five years ago.

The biggest carrier at Luxembourg (where it commands almost 70% of all weekly seats this August), Luxair (LUX) handled around 1.5 million passengers last year (a new record high) - - SEE CHART - - "LUX-2014-08 TRAFFIC GROWTH," representing an increase of +9.5% over 2012 figures. In fact, 2013 was an excellent year for (LUX) as its load factor grew by +1.9% LF and capacity (ASK)s went up +6.4%. Furthermore, with three new additions to its network (namely the services to Dublin, Stockholm Arlanda, and Lisbon, launched at the end of March) Luxair (LUX) is likely to continue its growth in 2014. Besides this, (LUX) also commenced weekly flights on the 814 km sector to Calvi on April 26th.

Overall, looking at passenger development between 2004 and 2013, Luxair (LUX) posted decreases of -5.9% and -3.3% in 2007 and 2009, respectively. With those exceptions, (LUX) has experienced growth each year, noting an annual average growth rate (CAGR) of +2.9% over this period. Also noteworthy is the fact that (LUX)’s average annual load factor has improved significantly from 62% LF in 2004, to 73% LF in 2008, and last year it reached 75% LF.

According to schedule data for this August, (LUX) operates 110 non-stop services, with the top 12 airport pairs accounting for 28% of all weekly seats. With a yearly increase of almost +20%, the 1,487 km route to Porto accounts for the majority of weekly seats (3.5%) in 2014, being operated with a total of 23 weekly departures from Luxembourg - - SEE ATTACHED - - "LUX-2014-08 - TOP 12 ROUTES." In fact all of (LUX)’s routes are being operated from its Luxembourg base, with the only exception being the 531 km German sector from Saarbrücken to Hamburg (highlighted in bright green), which is served 12 times weekly.

Luxair (LUX)’s weekly seat capacity posted over >12% growth this August, with 10 of the top dozen airport pairs growing, when compared to data from the corresponding week last year. Therefore, the 795 km link to Copenhagen is the fastest growing airport pair, having increased by +138% or +407 weekly seats in the past 12 months. This comes as a result of (LUX) increasing its frequency by five weekly flights to 11 times weekly. By comparison, the only route not to feature Luxembourg as an origin or destination point, the Saarbrücken - Hamburg airport pair, provided the greatest capacity decrease (-3%), owing to the carrier replacing its Dash 8-Q400 operations with ERJ 145 flights on Saturdays.

Luxair (LUX) operates to a total of 19 countries in Europe and North Africa, based on schedule data for this August - - SEE ATTACHED - - "LUX-2014-07 - TOP 10 INTERNATIONAL MARKETS." (LUX)’s top 10 country markets account for 90% of all weekly international seats this summer, representing a -2% decrease from last year’s figures. Following a modest yearly increase of +0.7%, Germany still accounts for a quarter of international seats, being served with a combined 103 weekly flights to Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Saarbrücken, and Berlin Tegel. Looking at this year’s top 10, Tunisia is the only country market served by Luxair outside Europe. From its hub, (LUX) operates services to Djerba and Enfidha with six weekly and twice-weekly departures, respectively.

This August, (LUX)’s weekly international seat capacity experienced +11% growth, with eight of the top 10 countries growing. The stand out performance is that emanating from operations to the United Kingdom, having increased by +41% or 528 weekly seats in the past 12 months. Luxair (LUX) increased its frequency to London City by six weekly flights, with the country market climbing from 10th to sixth position this summer. On the other hand, Turkey witnessed the greatest capacity decrease (-6.8%).

January 2015: Luxair (LUX) has a new accord with its staff and unions after several months of intense labor discord concerning a new collective labor agreement. Several media outlets have reported the agreement will save the carrier -€8 million/-$9.37 million.

In return for the savings, (LUX) has reportedly pledged to safeguard jobs while granting concessions on the way pay raises are given. In addition to several other measures, (LUX) has also retained a pay grade system based on seniority within the company, rather than issuing performance-related bonuses.

The agreement, which is subject to a final ratification vote, was approved by the (LUX) board and the (OGBL), (LCGB), and (NGL-SNEP) unions.

Luxair (LUX) is one of the smallest flag carriers in Europe. According to its website, it operates a fleet of two Boeing 737-800s, three 737-700s, six Bombardier Dash 8-Q400s and six Embraer ERJ-145s. It transported 1.5 million passengers in 2013.

February 2015: Luxair (LUX) has signed a firm purchase agreement for three Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 NextGen airplanes with two options. The order is part of a fleet renewal plan to increase its fleet to 10 Dash 8-Q400s as it replaces less efficient regional jets.

Based on current list prices, the order is valued at approximately $100.3 million and could increase to $169.5 million, if both options are exercised.

Luxair (LUX) President & (CEO), Adrien Ney said (LUX) is continuing to replenish its fleet with the “newest, most modern turboprops that are providing maximum flexibility to our business clients, and quality travel at affordable prices to our leisure customers.” The two new airplanes “is an ideal solution, as we open more regional routes and expand frequencies.”

April 2015: (APG) has been appointed by Luxair Luxembourg Airlines (LUX) as its (GAS) in Ireland, effective immediately.

May 2015: News Item A-1: Luxembourg-based aviation company, the LuxairGroup, parent of Luxair (LUX), reported a 2014 net profit of +€9.7 million/+$11.8 million, a more than fivefold increase from +€1.9 million in the year-ago period.

Luxair Luxembourg Airlines (LUX) reported a 2014 operating loss of -€8.4 million, narrowed from a -€12 million loss in the prior year. “The year 2014 was marked by the crossing, for the first time, of the one-million-passenger-threshold by (LUX) and by a -30% reduction of the loss of our airline business,” Luxair Group (CEO), Adrien Ney said.

Full-year revenue for (LUX) rose +15% on reduced fuel costs during the second half and control led labor costs. Full-year passenger numbers increased +19% year-over-year to 1.09 million. “The LuxairGroup closed the year 2014 with more than respectable results. Given the unfavorable context in which the company has evolved throughout the year, this is an unexpected success, which augurs well for its future,” LuxairGroup Board Chairman, Paul Helminger said.

(LUX) has signed a firm purchase agreement for three Bombardier DHC-8-Q400 NextGen airplanes, plus two options, the first two of which should be delivered by the end of 2016. In 2018 to 2020, (LUX) plans to evaluate a new generation of midsize jets with reduced passenger-seat costs.

News Item A-2: Luxair (LUX) commenced a new seasonal service from its Luxembourg (LUX) base on May 17th, to Olbia (OLB) on the Italian island of Sardinia. The 1,004 km airport pair will be served weekly (Sundays) until September 27th, using (LUX)’s 76Y-seat Dash 8-Q400s. No other airline flies between these two points. Other destinations that Luxair (LUX) will serve this summer with just a single weekly Dash 8-Q400 service are Cagliari, Calvi, Dubrovnik, Ibiza, and Naples.

June 2015: (STG) Aerospace has launched an addition to its safTsign products, visiWing, to increase visibility and minimize risk of collision from ground handling vehicles following installation of Split Wing Scimitar winglets, whose lower blade reduces ground clearance, on Boeoing 737NGs. Luxair (LUX) is the first carrier to install visiWing.

July 2015: News Item A-1: Lufthansa (DLH) is considering selling its 13% stake in Luxair (LUX) and has been in touch with other shareholders, including the Luxembourg government, to discuss the matter.

(DLH), which has held a 13% stake in flag carrier, Luxair (LUX) since 1993, sounded out the possibility of a sale of its stake with the other shareholders as part of a regular portfolio review, a spokesman for (DLH) said on July 1st.

Luxembourg Infrastructure Minister, Francois Bausch said in a public session of parliament he had received a letter from Lufthansa (DLH) stating the company's intention to sell, confirming comments he made in an interview with newspaper "Luxemburger Wort."

He declined to comment on what a sale would mean for Luxair (LUX), saying he would not discuss matters of a privately run company in public. "There is currently no decision as to the next step," the (DLH) spokesman said.

Luxembourg owns a 39% stake in Luxair (LUX), with Luxembourg's state savings bank holding almost 22% and private bank (BIL) holding just over >13%.

The remaining 13% is held by "LuxairGroup and others," according to (LUX)'s website.

August 2015: Luxair (LUX)'s relationship with shareholder, Lufthansa (DLH) is heading for the rocks after (LUX) accused the Germans of rescinding trade agreements in force between the two carriers.

In retaliation for (DLH)'s move to launch its own Frankfurt Internatioal - Luxembourg service 4x-daily effective October 25, (LUX) said it would be terminating its own Frankfurt operations, while increasing its Luxembourg - Munich flights from 3x- to 4x-daily, also effective October 25. (DLH) operating the latter route 2x-daily will put it into direct competition with (LUX).

"These changes in Luxair (LUX)’s program are the result of the recent decision by Lufthansa (DLH) to rescind its trade agreements with (LUX) on these two routes," (LUX) said. "(LUX) has chosen to continue to serve Munich and to abandon the Frankfurt route, which is used primarily to carry passengers to and from other destinations."

(LUX) said that for the moment, other aspects of its partnership with (DLH), including code sharing and frequent flyer collaboration, had not been affected.

In July, (DLH) announced it was looking to dispose of its 13% stake in (LUX), which it has held for some twenty-three years. (DLH) justified the move, claiming the stake did not give them any real influence in (LUX)'s operations and named the Luxembourg government as a preferred buyer.

October 2015: Luxair (LUX) has bought a Boeing 737-800 from airberlin (BER) and will decide on a 737-700 replacement next year, with the Embraer E190-E2 or Bombardier CSeries CS100/CS300 in the running.

At the start of 2015, (LUX) operated a scheduled fleet of seven Bombardier Dash 8-Q400s, six Embraer ERJ-145s, two 737-700s and three 737-800s, although the 737-800s are primarily operated by the group’s holiday arm, LuxairTours. Since then, it has retired three ERJ-145s and (on October 15) it bought a Boeing 737-800 from airberlin (BER).

The Luxembourg flag carrier will retain the 737-800s, as they are dedicated to its tour operator business, and aims to decide on the 737-700 replacement in 2016 for delivery between 2018 to 2019 to 2025.

“In 2016, we need to really evaluate what the next step is. It will probably be something like the E190 or a mix of CS100s and CS300s (about five aircraft) to replace the two 737-700s and a number of older Dash 8-Q400s,” Luxair (LUX) Group Executive VP Airline, Martin Isler said on the sidelines of the European Regions Airline Association (ERA) General Assembly in Berlin.

(LUX) also has three Dash 8-Q400s on order, which are being brought in to replace its ERJ-145s. Two are due for delivery in December, followed by the third in May. As part of the deal, it has two options that come up in 2017.

“We need to get rid of the ERJ-145s because they are not efficient anymore. They are too small and they are going to cost us €30 million/$34 million over the next five years to continue to operate them,” Isler said.

However, (LUX) is currently one Dash 8-Q400 down, following a rejected take-off incident at Germany’s Saarbrücken Airport. The aircraft came to rest on its belly and it remains unclear whether the 2012-build Dash 8-Q400 will be written off. “We need to replace that aircraft for the winter season; we are wet leasing for now,” Isler said, adding that the three incoming aircraft have all been allocated and the deliveries cannot be brought forward.

November 2015: News Item A-1: "Lufthansa (DLH) Sells 13% Stake in Luxair (LUX) to Luxembourg Government" by (ATW) Kurt Hofmann, November 16, 2015.

The Luxembourg government has acquired Lufthansa (DLH)’s 13% stake in national carrier Luxair (LUX). “The deal was completed November 6. To our understanding, the government will take these shares temporarily.”

The Luxembourg government said the shareholding will be placed on the market, when all regulatory requirements have been met, according to several media reports.

In 1992, (DLH) bought a 13% stake in (LUX), in which the Luxembourg government holds 39%, along with several banks including Banque Internationale à Luxembourg.

The LuxairGroup, parent of Luxair (LUX), reported a 2014 net profit of +€9.7 million/+$11.8 million, a more than fivefold increase compared to the year-ago period.

(LUX) operates 3 Boeing 737-800s, 3 737-700s, 7 Bombardier Dash 8-Q400s and 5 Embraer ERJ-145s. It has 6 Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 NextGen aircraft, plus 3 orders. The 1st 2 aircraft should be delivered by the end of 2016. From 2018 to 2020, (LUX) plans to evaluate a new generation of midsize jets with reduced passenger-seat costs, it said.

December 2015: Italy’s Del Vecchio family business, Delfin (SARL) has purchased the 13% stake in Luxair (LUX), which the Luxembourg government had acquired in November from Lufthansa (DLH). The government had said the shareholding would be placed on the market after meeting all regulatory requirements.

Delfin owns shares in various Italian firms, most notably eyewear specialist, Luxottica.

In 1992, (DLH) bought a 13% stake in (LUX), in which the Luxembourg government holds 39%, along with several banks including Banque Internationale à Luxembourg.

LuxairGroup, parent of Luxair (LUX), reported a 2014 net profit of +€9.7 million/+$11.8 million, a more than fivefold increase compared to the year-ago period.

September 2016: 1 Dash 8-Q402 (4534, LX-LQI), ex-(C-FOSX).

October 2017: Luxembourg’s national carrier Luxair (LUX) will launch a fleet development study in 2018 as it considers its future shape.

(LUX) operates a route network covering much of Europe, using a combination of Boeing 737s (4 737-700s and 2 737-800s) plus 11 Bombardier (BMB) Q400 turboprops for regional services.

“We study the market, aircraft types and new routes on a regular basis,” a (LUX) spokesman said on October 27. “We have stabilized our fleet for the moment. Next year, we will have a new study where we see where we want to go, what are our passengers’ needs, new technologies on the market, and we will see if our fleet is still the right one.”

Earlier this year, (LUX) sdaid it had postponed a decision on a new regional jet until 2018; if this purchase goes ahead, it will replace the 737-700s. The choice is between the Bombardier CS100 and the Embraer E190-E2.

The spokesman said there was no timescale for conclusion of next year’s study, but “it will take quite a long time” as options are considered.
