Changi Airport welcomed the inaugural flight from Taipei with a water salute today.

STARLUX has been continuously adjusting its flight schedule and aircraft delivery plan in response to the changing conditions caused by the pandemic. In this respect, the airline has opted to open routes to important business destinations rather than popular vacation spots. With the new route launching today, the airline is now servicing nine destinations from Taoyuan including MacauPenangBangkokOsakaTokyoKuala LumpurHo Chi Minh CityManila and Singapore.

The airline currently operates five Airbus A321neo aircraft, each having 188 seats, including eight in business class and 180 in economy class. Each seat in business class transforms into an 82-inch fully flat bed. Every seat in economy is equipped with a personal entertainment system.

The cabin interior was designed by BMW Group Designworks and features natural and warm colors to evoke a sense of being “Home in the Air.” On flights departing from Taoyuan, the business class meals are specially prepared by the Michelin Taiwanese restaurant “Longtail,” while economy class features a menu created by the renowned Japanese-style grilled meat restaurant “Hutong” in Taiwan. STARLUX prides itself on painstaking detail regarding accommodation and services on all STARLUX flights. In spite of the current challenges facing the airline industry, most services remain available, allowing the airline to continue providing the most enjoyable flights an airline can during this difficult time.
