This Sunday, 06 November 2022, 20 years after this tragic accident, Mr. François Bausch, Deputy Prime Minister, minister of Mobility and Public Works, the Board of Directors and the Management of Luxair, invited the families and relatives of the deceased, at a memorial ceremony, on the site where the monument commemorating stands.

Among those present were members of the families of the deceased, friends and colleagues, but also, Mrs Corinne Cahen, Minister of Family and Integration and Minister for the Greater Region and the Mayor of Niederanven, Mr Raymond Weydert and its aldermen.

Organized in memory of those who died during this tragic event, this ceremony was a moment to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the accident of flight LG9642 which occurred on 06 November 2002 and to never forget.

22 passengers (including 19 passengers and 3 Luxair crew members), from 3 countries with different profiles and origins were on board flight LG9642 which linked Berlin Tempelhof airport to Luxembourg airport, with a Fokker 50 registered "LX- LGB”, which entered into service on Luxair lines in June 1991.

“It is important, even 20 years after the terrible accident, to remember those who died in such a tragic way. My thoughts are with their families, friends and acquaintances.”, declares François Bausch, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Mobility and Public Works.

"I would like to state again that the Board of Directors, the Management and the employees of Luxair, we all still, today, share the sorrow and the pain of each person who has lost a member of his family, a parent, a husband, a wife, a friend or a faithful colleague. Our thoughts are with them. It was a tragic accident that marked Luxair’s history forever. This accident forced Luxair to question its safety rules and to take additional precautions so that the circumstances of this event cannot happen again.”, declares Gilles Feith, Luxair CEO.

Indeed, for 20 years, Luxair has worked without compromise to systematically secure its operations. To do this, the airline has implemented a much more comprehensive and completely revised safety management system, which, among others, ensures the permanent exchange of communication with the maintenance of its aircraft and flight operations. In addition to the multiplication of allocated resources, quality software, Air Safety has entered the heart of its operations with fully dedicated experts.

Following the detailed analyses of the various accidents that have occurred around the world and the lessons learned by airlines, aviation safety in general, has continuously improved in recent years. Luxair monitors these improvements and strictly complies with the applicable standards. Aviation accident statistics are also steadily declining, even though air traffic is increasing significantly.
