The overall cargo volumes at Luxembourg Airport during 2018 increased by 2% to a total of 957,000 tons handled exclusively by LuxairCARGO. In detail, the biggest growth has been registered in the following categories:

  • Pharma: 36,830 tons representing an increase of 22% compared to 2017
  • AVI: 2,524 horses handled, increase of 58% (+926 horses) compared to 2017
  • Import: Increase of 5% representing a surplus of 21,800 tons

The previous year registered imbalance between inbound and outbound handling has declined to a more or less balanced situation.

This is the best result in the history of Luxembourg Airport and in order to cope with the growing demand by the carriers operating through LUX, four additional wide body handling positions had been added as of November 2018. This increased the ramp handling possibilities by 50%. During
2018, we also registered an increase in aircraft rotations of 6 % to 6,675 turnarounds.

Out of these aircraft rotations, the latest generation freighter aircrafts such as the B777F and the B747-8F have increased by 10% so that those aircrafts make up more than 63% of the total movements.

Customers: In October 2018, China Southern started a weekly rotation between PVG and LUX.
