My thanks also go to the operational Luxair teams who implemented this cooperation with impressive commitment and professionalism."
Gilles Feith, Luxair CEO Gilles Feithsaid: "The partnership with German Airways has allowed Luxair to cope with the unexpectedly strong increase in demand at the beginning of the summer. This would not have been possible at all with its our own capacity.
