lux-Airport and Luxair inaugurate the new Luxair Aircraft Maintenance Hangar

On April 30, 2024, lux-Airport and Luxair celebrated an important milestone in their shared history, the inauguration of the new Luxair aircraft maintenance hangar. The official ceremony was held in the presence of Mrs. Yuriko Backes, Minister of Defense, Mobility and Public Works and Gender Equality and Diversity and Mrs. Jacqueline Breuer, Mayor of Sandweiler.

“The aviation field is experiencing constant growth in our country, which requires infrastructure, services and maintenance facilities adapted to meet the needs of its customers. In order to remain at the forefront of modern aviation and succeed on the international scene, the construction of this new maintenance hangar was essential for our national airline, Luxair, to guarantee the reliability of its operations. This new hall perfectly illustrates the dynamism of the aviation sector, aiming to make the airport a strategic, modern and exemplary infrastructure for this domain.“ announces Mrs. Yuriko Backes, Minister of Defense, Mobility and Public Works and Gender Equality and Diversity.

For more than 70 years the Hal Nennig was used by Luxair for the maintenance of its fleet and housed Luxair Technics personnel. It is now time for these same teams to move into a new state-of-the-art building that perfectly matches Luxair’s needs, providing an optimal environment to support the growth of the company’s airline fleet.

“This new hangar represents a major turning point for Luxair and lux-Airport. It will breathe new life into the work of our colleagues at Luxair Technics and will perfectly support Luxair’s growth. With our expanding fleet and modernized facilities, we are ready to meet the challenges ahead.“ declares Gilles Feith, CEO of Luxair.

“For lux-Airport, as the developer and investor of the new Luxair Maintenance Hangar, this building represents another milestone in the ongoing renewal and expansion of the airport. Less than 2 years after the groundbreaking ceremony, the hangar is now being inaugurated. The short construction time speaks for itself. We would like to thank all those involved in the project for their exemplary cooperation. The long-term lease by Luxair is a clear commitment to the location and a promising outlook for the future of aircraft maintenance at Findel.”, says Alexander Flassak, CEO of lux-Airport.

This new building, which measures 110 meters by 100, has a height of 22 meters and a surface area of ​​approximately 5,000 square meters, will be able to accommodate up to 3 Boeing 737s at the same time, providing ideal space for maintaining the aircraft that Luxair will receive in the years to come. The Luxair maintenance hangar, in addition to being more environmentally friendly, also accommodates several maintenance workshops, storage areas for spare parts and administrative offices.
