Luxair (LG, Luxembourg) ordered four B737-7s from Boeing during the 2023 Paris Air Show, complementing its previous order for four B737-8s.

"We continue to invest in Luxair's growth, and this agreement for four B737-7 is an extra step towards securing a long-term future for our national airline. This type of aircraft is a perfect match for Luxair and will meet the requirements of the market. Seating 160 passengers, the B737-7 will offer flexibility across the Luxair destination network while significantly reducing fuel consumption," Chief Executive Gilles Feith said.

The carrier will become the European launch operator of the -7, the smallest variant of the B737 MAX Family. The ch-aviation fleets module shows that the -7 has only four confirmed disclosed customers, with Southwest Airlines planning to add 202 units, Allegiant Air - 30, and SkyUp Airlines and Ruili Airlines two each.

Feith told ch-aviation that the delivery dates were not yet confirmed. The B737-7 has yet to be certified.

The Luxembourgish carrier has a two-step B737 MAX induction strategy. It will shortly add the first two B737-8s on lease to deploy them during the Summer 2023 peak. They will be followed by four deliveries directly from Boeing in 2026-2027. Two of those will replace the leased units.

The B737 MAX will replace the airline's existing narrowbody fleet of four B737-700s and four B737-800s. The airline also operates eleven DHC-8-Q400s, according to the ch-aviation fleets module.
