Lifting of the temporary suspension of scheduled passenger flights from the United Kingdom to Luxembourg as well as from Luxembourg to the United Kingdom

The temporary suspension of scheduled passenger flights from the United Kingdom to Luxembourg as well as from Luxembourg to the United Kingdom will be lifted this Wednesday, 23 December 2020 at midnight.

As from tomorrow, all flights will be able to operate.

Passengers returning to Luxembourg must meet the following conditions:

  • be in possession of a negative PCR test taken less than 48 hours ago;
  • be in possession of a negative PCR test dated between 48 and 72 hours. These persons must undergo a new PCR test upon arrival at Luxembourg airport and must place themselves into quarantine until a negative test result has been received.

Alternatively, antigen tests are accepted under the same conditions as outlined above. These include tests that meet the minimum performance requirements of ≥80% sensitivity and ≥97% specificity compared to PCR tests, in line with the criteria established by the WHO (Antigen detection in the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection using rapid immunoassays. Interim guidance, 11 September 2020).
