Luxair Luxembourg Airlines, the national airline of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, has finalized an order for an additional Boeing 737-800. The airline previously ordered a 737-800 in June. The 737-800 has an average list price of $77 million.

"The 737-800 has already proved to be a great success with Luxair and it provides us and our tour operator LuxairTours with the ideal aircraft to offer high quality and reliable service on LuxairTours vacation flights to the Mediterranean and as far as Cabo Verde in Africa," said Adrien Ney, LuxairGroup president and chief executive officer. "This additional order confirms our commitment to provide a modern fleet with the highest levels of quality, comfort and environmental performance."

The new 737 will be equipped with advanced-technology Blended Winglets, an environmental innovation that reduces drag, resulting in less fuel consumption and a decrease in carbon emissions of 3.5 to 4%. The new airplane also will benefit from performance enhancements expected to result in a 2% reduction in fuel consumption, which will be in place by early 2012 through a combination of airframe and engine improvements.

Luxair has selected the new 737 Boeing Sky Interior for the airline's latest 737, which features modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals that will provide passengers with what Boeing says is "a greater connection to the flying experience".
