LuxairGroup results for financial year 2012: A negative year
Following on from the problems in the regional air transport sector, LuxairGroup has published negative results for financial year 2012.
The aviation sector remains very sensitive to the vagaries of the economy, with increased exposure with regard to traditional regional air transport in Europe. Luxair Luxembourg Airlines’ operating result thus logically experienced a further downturn in 2012, while the tour operator LuxairTours only just managed to struggle through in a highly competitive environment. As for the freight handling business, the interaction between the state of the economy and goods transport unsurprisingly resulted in a decline in volumes handled by LuxairCARGO. 2012 was therefore a difficult year for LuxairGroup and resulted in a loss of 10.5 million EUR.
Luxair Luxembourg Airlines' seminars for relaxed flying a big success
31 seminars have been organised since 2001 with 330 participants, who, with a few exceptions, have all not only overcome their fear of flying by going on the flight at the end of the seminar, but really have enjoyed this roundtrip flight. So they have been able to consider future trips by plane in a more relaxed way and over 90% continue flying on a regular basis.
Last seminar for 2013:
15-16 June 2013 (German/Luxembourgish)

Luxair Luxembourg Airlines – planning for the future
The Roland Berger consultancy has endorsed the viability of the strategic model of Luxair Luxembourg Airlines, while highlighting its extreme fragility. An improvement in our earnings in the order of €25 million is needed to guarantee the Airline activity’s future. The Management believes this can be achieved without an employment plan or redundancies and has announced bold ambitions for the future.
