In line with the latest expert medical finding that the COVID-19 virus is primarily transmitted by droplets and touch, Luxair & LuxairTours have placed their greatest focus on surface cleaning:
HEPA Filters in all our aircraft – the cleanliness of our aircraft cabin is of utmost importance:
The air on board all Luxair aircraft is cleaner than outside, it is continuously mixed with a large quantity of fresh outside air and it consists of up to 60% fresh air.
The air in the cabin is changed every 3 minutes, in average the filters remove every pollutant such as dust, allergens bacterial or viral organisms, such as the COVID-19. They are filtered from the air circulating in the aircraft cabin, on the ground, and during your flight meeting the standards of air filtering for hospital operating rooms.
Filters are 99.99% effective.
At Luxair & LuxairTours, we follow very strict hygiene procedures to enhance your safe travel. Our aircraft are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
If any suspect or confirmed COVID-19 case was on board, a deep cleaning & advanced disinfection process, including defogging of cabin interiors, will be systematically done prior to operating the next flight.
In addition, in the affected areas, leather seats including seat covers, armrests, and seatbelts are thoroughly cleaned using approved cleaning products.
Only the products provided by Luxair may be used onboard.
Luxair follows very strict hygiene measures in respect and adherence to EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) rules.

Our crew will also ensure the regular promotion of hygiene rules – washing hands frequently and thoroughly with soap, correctly covering mouth & nose when coughing or sneezing, not shaking hands, avoiding physical contact, taking care to avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth – via Inflight announcements.
Following measures have been put in place for boarding and seating in the aircraft:
Several measures have been taken to significantly reduce the contact between crew and passengers, additional measures are led to implement a "touchless cabin":
Only laptop, handbag, briefcase, medicine or baby food (no hard rules and upon judgement of the cabin crew). Any other items will have to be checked-in within your regular bag or managed as a Deposit At Aircraft (for Q400 only)
We will regularly adapt our service depending on recommendations from local authorities, the EU and from the World Health Organization.
The hygiene measures introduced as a result of the crisis also mean that we have to adapt our in-flight service to minimize interactions and contact:
Service onboard will be adapted according to the flight time.
Items allowed in the cabin will be limited to laptop, handbag, briefcase, medicine and baby food.
Any other items have to be checked-in within your regular baggage on hold or managed as a "delivery at aircraft" (only for De Havilland Q400) baggage.
Please be aware that your cabin baggage size 55 X 40 X 23 cm and maximum 8 kg will not be accepted in the cabin and will automatically be tagged as “delivery at aircraft (DAA)” baggage. This means you will have to leave it in front of the aircraft before boarding and pick it up right after landing when leaving the aircraft.
Please be aware that your cabin baggage will not be accepted in the cabin. Any other items, including your cabin luggage, have to be checked-in within your regular baggage and will be transported in the hold. You will then have to collect it on the baggage carousel after landing at the baggage claim area.
We want to make sure that you feel safe when traveling with us and you are supported by a caring and professional team.
