Airports & Airlines
Located 8km northeast of central Luxembourg City, Luxembourg Airport is the country's only international airport, and the only one in this tiny country with a paved runway. Luxair (www.luxair.lu) is Luxembourg’s national carrier. It and numerous other airlines operate flights to major destinations across Europe including London's Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
No departure tax is charged (neither separately nor as part of the ticket price) upon leaving Luxembourg.
Trains and buses connect Luxembourg with neighbouring Belgium, France and Germany, with onward connections throughout Europe.
As part of the Schengen Area – named for the Luxembourg town in which treaties were signed in 1985 and 1990 creating a border-free zone – there are no formalities when crossing the border.
Thanks to lower taxes, petrol is considerably cheaper in Luxembourg than in neighbouring countries, so if you're driving, fill up once you're here.
As a landlocked country, it is not possible to travel to Luxembourg by sea.
