Being a member of AOPA Luxembourg provides significant benefits. First of all, the crewmember card gives various perks in the airports, such as discounts in duty free shops, restaurants and hotel (especially network hotels, located in the airport’s vicinity). A number of airports and handling agents provide reduced landing and handling fees. These discounts may vary but are quite significant. For example, a handler in Paphos airport (Cyprus) has provided a 50% discount for AOPA members. As of late 2019 (pre-COVID), airports in Greece, Portugal and Lithuania were confirmed to have discounts in place for AOPA members. The availability of discounts may vary, one must ask prior to arranging a flight (e.g. while filing the PPR). It may take just one or two landings to offset the value of a year’s membership!
Typically, a member can get their AOPA discount during checkout by entering your national AOPA member number and your name as recorded by your national AOPA. Should one have any problems getting member number to validate, please contact national AOPA. They can help to verify it and if necessarily make sure it is active for the offer.
