Luxair is to reopen its direct flights to Dublin as of March 30, 2014.

Two years after the airline was forced to abandon the route to the Irish capital, Luxair has announced it will resume a direct route with four weekly flights, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, for the entire summer season.

While the route won't be served until March next year, flights can be booked in advance from July 8, 2013.

These new flights will be operated by a Bombardier Q400 with a capacity of 76 seats (versus 49 for the Embraer ERJ145 used in the past) and will allow the travellers from Luxembourg and the Greater Region to reach the Irish capital directly from Findel airport. This is meant for business travellers, notably for those working for the financial sector, as well as for tourists willing to explore the Dublin charms. It also will ease the arrival of Irish people wishing to discover Luxembourg.

This decision is part of the new Luxair strategy to serve its customers better, not only with a more attractive fare structure but also by developing its European network according to the demand of both business and leisure travellers. This follows the opening of the new Luxembourg-Copenhagen route as of June 3, already coming up with a very good load factor. It also comes after enhancements to the London-City route (a fifth daily flight is being operated since April 8) and the Milan-Malpensa connection (a third daily flight is being operated since September 2012).
