Airline Flybe has launched a new year-round service between Manchester and Luxembourg covering a route that was previously only accessible to and from main London airports.

Flybe new flight launch

Group travel organisers can choose from two flights each day from Monday to Friday or one on weekends.

Flight times from Manchester Airport include a 9.10am flight, arriving in Luxembourg at 11.50am, and a 6.30pm flight arriving at 8.55pm.

Flights from Manchester have been timed to make day returns a real possibility, leaving Manchester in the morning before returning in the late evening.

These new flights have been brought into effect immediately, and can be booked now on the Flybe website.

Groups of nine or more can book through Flybe’s group sales team.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe chief revenue officer, said: “We are delighted to be launching our first flights between Manchester and Luxembourg. Not only is this a first for Flybe, it is also now the only direct route offered to Luxembourg City outside of London.”

What can groups do in Luxembourg?

Despite being one of the smallest countries in the world, Luxembourg offers plenty when it comes to things for groups to see and do.

The country is split into five regions that each offer something in terms of tourism. There’s Luxembourg city with its history, The Ardennes and Mullerthal with their castles and walking trails, The Land of the Red Rocks with its museums, and the Moselle with its vineyards.

Group travel organisers planning a trip won’t want to miss the capital city, where guided tours are available to book. Don’t miss exploring the UNESCO-listed Old Town, either.

Further ideas for a trip to Luxembourg include visits to one or more of the country’s estimated 130 castles, a trip to the Wine Museum in Ehnen, and a boat trip onboard the M.S Princesse Marie-Astrid. Groups of up to 500 can take this boat trip along the Moselle River; dining options are available onboard.
