LUX Airport Overview

luxembourg airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Luxembourg Airport.

What to Expect

Luxembourg Airport (code: LUX) has two terminals, both built in the last 15 years. Terminal A handles most carriers and Terminal B primarily caters to business flights. Amenities include several shops and eateries, both landside and airside, plus free WiFi. For added comfort while you wait, a lounge is available. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

The airport closes nightly from 12:00AM until 3:00AM, so only though with boarding passes are able to stay during those hours. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer free shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
