Luxair ushers in advanced fleet modernization with newly acquired Boeing 737 MAX.

Luxembourg's national airline, Luxair, has welcomed the first Boeing 737 MAX to its fleet, signaling a dynamic phase of advanced fleet enhancement.

The plane in question, LX-LBL, outfitted with CFM International Leap-1B engines, originally took to the skies with Air Italy in 2018. This Italian carrier, a joint venture between Qatar Airways and AQA Holding boasted a fleet of 737 MAX jets, before it terminated its operations in early 2020.

Earlier this year, Luxair unveiled its plans to integrate MAX 8 aircraft into its fleet starting from 2026, supplementing this with leased aircraft in the meantime.

Furthermore, the airline has chosen to incorporate the smaller MAX 7 model as part of a deal disclosed at the Paris Air Show, thereby enriching its fleet with a broader range of modern aircraft.
