LUXEMBOURG — Luxembourg's flag carrier, Luxair, has announced plans to expand its fleet with the purchase of two additional Boeing 737 MAX 8s, bringing its total commitment to four of the aircraft.

Luxair aims to provide passengers with a more comfortable flying experience by featuring spacious cabins in the new planes.

Earlier this year, Luxair had already ordered two MAX 8s, slated for delivery in Q1 2026. The airline is also bridging the capacity gap by leasing two MAX 8s from Boeing and is in negotiations to acquire two more for delivery in 2027. All MAX 8s are exclusively powered by CFM International Leap-1B engines.

Starting this summer, Luxair will use the leased aircraft to strengthen its network, with the MAX's range enabling the airline to serve long routes such as Dubai and Senegal. The MAX 8s will also help Luxair mitigate the financial impact of rising fuel prices due to their increased efficiency. The carrier's current fleet includes 737-700s and -800s, as well as regional aircraft.
