Descended from the Luxembourg Airlines Company, founded in 1948, Luxair was set up in 1961 to meet the growing demand for air links between Luxembourg and other European cities. In 1962, Luxair began flights by launching a Luxembourg-Paris route with a Fokker F27 Friendship. Luxair started modernising its fleet since 2003, when the airline ordered two new Boeing 737-700s to replace its older Boeing aircraft. Luxair decided to reintroduce turboprop aircraft in order to confront with the rising cost of oil
