Luxair (LG, Luxembourg) took delivery of its first of two leased B737-8s on July 2, 2023.

LX-LBL (msn 64607) was ferried from Ostrava to Luxembourg after maintenance, already in Luxair's full livery. It is expected to be deployed into revenue service imminently, as Luxair had already filed schedules for the type starting on July 1. The carrier will use LX-LBL mainly on medium-haul leisure routes from Luxembourg, including to Burgas, Faro, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Porto, Rome Fiumicino, and Varna.

Luxair will shortly add a second leased B737-8, EI-GFY (msn 64605), which currently remains parked at Budapest airport. Both aircraft are ex-Air Italy (Milan Malpensa) jets and spent the entire COVID-19 pandemic in storage. The ch-aviation fleets ownership module shows both are dry-leased from Standard Chartered Aviation Finance.

The airline secured the two MAX 8s as an interim solution pending the deliveries of four B737-8s and four B737-7s directly from Boeing, in 2026. Two of the direct-ordered B737-8s will replace the dry-leased units.

The ch-aviation fleets module shows Luxair's current fleet comprises four B737-700s, four B737-800s, and eleven DHC-8-Q400s.
