Luxembourg airport recorded passenger increase in 2018

January 18, 2019

  • 4.04 million passengers in 2018 compared to 3.6 million in the previous year
  • New record month in July 2018 with over 397,000 passengers
  • Visit us at the Foire Vakanz in Hall 8C

Luxembourg Airport closes the traffic year 2018 with the total number of 4.04 million passengers. Traveler growth was roughly 12% lower than last year. The month of July remained the record month with a total of 397,000 passengers.

This increase in passenger figures is due, among other things, to the launch of new routes. Furthermore, there were the following new destinations in 2018: Bordeaux / France, Keflavik/ Iceland, Brac / Croatia (seasonal), Marrakech / Morocco, Seville / Spain, Enfidha / Tunisia (seasonal) and Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates.

Porto was the number one destination, followed by Lisbon, Munich, Frankfurt and London City.

More and more airlines are relying on the next generation of quieter and lower-consumption aircraft. In 2018, the new generation of standard-hull Airbus 320Neo and Boeing 737-8 Max aircraft flew to Luxembourg airport for the first time.
