The De Havilland Q400 is the latest addition to the Luxair fleet. It is a short to medium-haul twin turboprop plane that has significantly lower CO2 emissions compared to other jets of its kind, which makes it a greener and quieter plane that is unrivalled in terms of performance, technology and comfort.
This model also has greater flexibility for take-off and landing over short distances, which means it is the most suitable and efficient aircraft for developing our destinations network across most of Europe.

Turboprops: Pratt & Whitney Canada PW-150A
Technology reminder: a turboprop engine is a gas turbine, jet engine driving a propeller through a speed-reduction gearbox. It has the same efficiency, absence of vibration and low sound disturbance as a jet engine. Turboprop-powered aircrafts are far more advanced than piston-powered planes of the 1950s and 1960s. Propellers are still used because fuel economy and the possibility to land on short runways favors this type of propulsion over jets on certain routes.
