This week the low cost airline carrier, Easyjet who have been operating out of Luxembourg airport for over 2 years now, have announced a new route to work in competition with Luxembourg taxis.
The new route, which will depart 4 times a day, including 1 late night flight, will start in September and will stop at Grevenmacher, via Roodt-Syre.
In an interview with Easyjet Boss, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, he said: “We are really excited about this new route. I think the residents of Luxembourg will finally be happy that they can get home quicker and cheaper than a taxi.”
As it stands, it is currently cheaper to fly to London, than it is to get a taxi to Grevenmacher.
“140 euros is the cab price from Luxembourg ville to Grevenmacher, so we thought we would offer a faster service for just 80 euros return, which is currently the price of our London route.”
“We hope after this service becomes successful, we will then open other flight routes to Wiltz, Bourscheid and Echternach.”
The Easyjet website is currently updating and bookings will be available soon.
