Trade unions OGBL, LCGB, and NGL-Snep met with Minister of Mobility François Bausch to discuss the future of Luxembourg's aviation sector, which risks being permanently hamstrung by the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The trade unions demanded coordinated safety measures at Luxembourg's airport and on planes, and voluntary virus tests for employees in the aviation sector.

The unions further demanded the creation of a specialised work group that will join efforts with airline and employee representatives to devise future strategies.

The news comes as Luxembourg's airport prepares to reopen next week.
