“Finally, STARLUX officially launched today and is able to welcome passengers aboard to experience the meticulous service we’ve been cultivating for almost three years. I would like to give credit to my whole team and all the supervisors, and related departments. As a brand-new carrier, we will fulfill our responsibility to provide safe and high-quality service. At the same time, we will direct every effort to ensure the airline industry in Taiwan to better coordinate with our government and other airlines,” said STARLUX Chairman K.W. Chang. 

As a passionate certified pilot himself, Chang has taken every opportunity to personally fly the airline’s new aircraft. Not only did he fly the first three A321neos back to Taiwan from Hamburg, but he will also be flying the second round trip to Macau and back, flights JX203 and JX204 today.

Water Salute

STARLUX Airlines is operating the state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft on the aforementioned routes. The aircraft has 188 seats, including eight in business class and 180 in economy class. Each seat in the business class is equipped with a 15.6-inch 1080p inflight entertainment system screen and can transform into an 82-inch fully flatbed. Passengers sitting in economy class can stretch out with a generous 31-inches of legroom and enjoy a personal entertainment system featuring a 10.1-inch 720p screen, which is unprecedented on narrow-body aircraft in Taiwan. Moreover, free Wi-Fi service is provided in both classes.

The inflight services have also been exquisitely prepared. From the playful 3D animated inflight safety video, the design and texture of the cabin seats, the exclusive cabin fragrance to the tailormade boarding music by the famous jazz musician Peter White and the inflight meal concocted by Michelin-star chef Lam Ming Kin, STARLUX has prepared a journey of experiences to satisfy all five senses of each passenger.

With its hub at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, STARLUX Airlines will initially fly routes in Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia, and gradually developing its trans-oceanic routes to North America starting in 2022, aiming to grow steadily to become one of the world’s leading top airlines.
