With a variety of revenue streams, Luxair Group has maintained an impressive growth record in recent years. Bernie Baldwin discovers how the Luxembourg-based company has succeeded even as competition has grown in the markets it serves.
Steady growth and regular profits for almost 15 years is quite an achievement for any business. Add to that mix a national carrier with no domestic air services and a fleet primarily made up of turboprops, and that statistic becomes even more impressive. The group comprises a scheduled airline (off cially Luxair Luxembourg Airlines but largely referred to as Luxair), a tour operator (Luxair Tours), whose flights are actually operated by Luxair, an airfreight handling agent (Luxair Cargo), plus a ground handling and catering operation (Luxair Services).
