Flying in Luxembourg
The 3 airports:
Although Luxembourg is relatively small (only 2,586 km²), there is plenty of space for flying activities such as gliding, parajumping and, last but not least, general aviation flying.
Luxembourg has 3 airfields with the most known one being the international airport of Luxembourg-Findel. Luxembourg Airport has grown significantly over the last years and has become the most significant airport in the Greater Region, with routes to all major European cities and holiday destinations, and is one of Europe's largest cargo hubs.
Besides this commercial activity at Luxembourg Airport, general aviation has a strong and long-standing presence there dating back to the early beginnings of the airport's existence. Today, a community of an estimated 800 pilots, club members and supporters livens up the general aviation scene at Luxembourg Airport, making it an integral part of this unique airport.
Combining all flying activity in Luxembourg, the total of leisure pilots and club members likely reaches 1000 participants, not including another 600 commercial pilots based at Luxembourg Airport flying for various airlines.
