first_imgExtremely fast growth recorded in first quarter at Luxembourg AirportDuring the first quarter of 2016, the passenger growth has far exceeded the expectations of lux-Airport and is probably amongst the highest growth rates ever recorded at the airport. In January, passenger numbers rose 16.5% compared to the same month in 2015, in February this growth rose further to 21.3% and in March the growth rate reached a record of 27.5%.The total number of passengers passing through the airport in the first quarter reached almost 580,000 (+22.2%). In March alone this was almost 230,000 passengers, the first time ever that the 200,000 passenger barrier was passed as early as March.Luxair remains the largest airline, and recorded a significant growth of 10.1% in March. The fastest growth in March however came from Lufthansa with 419% thanks to their 8 daily flights equally split between Munich and Frankfurt (vs 2 daily flights last year to Munich only), followed by Easyjet at 63.9% thanks especially to their new Porto route. Also KLM and British Airways recorded impressive growth at 19.7% and 17.6% respectively.In March too, Hop! and LOT Polish Airlines completed their first full month of operation to Lyon and Warsaw, respectively launched on 22 February and 1st March. At the end of March, Luxair opened a new connection to Prague (4 weekly flights) and Luxair Tours started Almeria in Spain (1 to 2 weekly flights). The next inaugurations will take place in May with Aegean Airlines launching flights to Athens and Luxair Tours to Zadar in Croatia.March was especially busy because of the closing of Metz-Nancy Lorraine Airport. Air Algérie, JetairFly and Hop! added approximately 9,000 passengers to the March total. The runway works at Metz-Nancy Lorraine Airport will be completed on 6 April and these airlines will resume their operations gradually at the French airport. The closing of Brussels Airport since the terrorist attacks on 22 March also added a number of passengers: several passengers with flights booked at Brussels Airport are now rebooked on the same airline departing or arriving at Luxembourg Airport. This leads to a number of airlines increasing the aircraft size and on most airlines this results in fuller flights. Lux AirportSource = Lux Airportlast_img read more
