As of March 2021, the Luxair airline will not have a stopover in Saarbrücken on the Luxembourg-Hamburg route. The route will be operated non-stop in the future. However, this has consequences for the Saarland airport: it not only loses its route to the Hanseatic city, but Luxair is also leaving the airport.
Some time ago, Luxair discontinued the Berlin route from Saarbrücken. This was taken over by Danish Air Transport in January 2020. With the impending abandonment of the stopover between Luxembourg and Saarbrücken, the carrier is withdrawing completely. The airport has meanwhile removed all Luxair logos from the homepage.
Luxair will now fly from Luxembourg to Heringsdorf twice a week. The small airport is located on Usedom, a popular holiday island in the Baltic Sea. The route is to be operated with DHC Dash 8-400. Also new in the Luxair range: Rostock-Laage.
