but here at Luxwing we couldn’t have asked for a better year. This year we have added two new aircrafts to our fleet which has helped us to carry out more than 2,500 flights in 2016 alone! We’ve flown important European royal families, and helped a famous musician with their European tour. But we haven’t only helped celebrities and royalty get from A to B. In July, Luxwing helped in the emergency evacuation of people from the Turkish coup d’état, and throughout the year we helped facilitate the transportation of several organs for emergency transplant surgeries – saving people’s lives across Europe.
This year, we were also able to sponsor the Alvarosky sailing team, bridging the gap between Sky and Sea. As well as sponsoring Francesco Siculiana success in qualifying for the Italian championships, Luxwing went onto sponsor the Italian sailing championship award, allowing Luxwing to become one of the main sponsors within The Italian Championships of offshore sailing. A sport which we are very passionate towards and were proud to be a part of in 2016.
We’re very proud of everything that we have achieved this year, and hope to continue growing, and helping even more people in 2017, but we couldn’t have done any of this without the help from everyone that we have worked with, and so just want to take a second to thank all of our pilots, office staff, suppliers, clients and the airports that have facilitated the flights we made this year. Many thanks to all of you who we’ve had the pleasure of working with and we hope that you also have plenty of success to reflect on.
Thanks again and best wishes for a magnificent 2017 to everyone!

Despite originating in Germany, Christmas markets have become a winter tradition across Europe. These markets are great for really getting into the festive spirit, the perfect way to spend the cold winter nights in the center of a city. For those of you who haven’t been to a Christmas market and don’t know what to expect, we suggest wrapping up warm and getting ready to enjoy live, festive music with a glass of mauled wine. There are usually plenty of carnival games and food, such as Crepes or German Bratwursts. You may also find Ice Skating and rides at some of the bigger markets. They also make great places to buy unique presents, as there are plenty of one-of-a-kind handcrafted gifts available, perfect for a last minute shopping.
The largest of all Christmas markets is of course in Germany, but there are plenty of other Christmas markets in all major cities across Europe and they are a great way to explore a country’s Christmas traditions. Have a look below for our list of the best in Europe.

For a very limited time only we are offering you an additional day FREE when you book a flight for two or more days in one of our medium sized jets! This is perfect for a Christmas or New Year’s Eve break, allowing you to enjoy a long weekend instead of an overnight trip. Or Maybe you just fancy a vacation day on an extended business trip? Either way, we know that an extra day can mean a lot, and we’ve all been in that situation where you have a scheduled flight home, but all you want, is one more day to explore the city or to stay with friends, so we challenge you – What would you do with an extra day? Don’t waste it! If the extra day wasn’t enough, we’re also going to pay for all of the passenger taxes for your trip! Bring your friends, bring your family, bring whoever you can fit in one of our mid-sized jets and enjoy Christmas, New Year’s and the extra day together!
