STARLUX Airlines, a Taiwan-based luxury carrier, today announced the launch of its inaugural Taipei-Los Angeles transpacific flight debuting on April 26.
Initially starting with five weekly flights, the service is expected to ramp to daily in June.
STARLUX also announced the establishment of its first US office based in Los Angeles and its new designation as the “Official International Airline Partner of the LA Clippers” as part of a multi-year partnership with the NBA team.
“As a brand-new airline to the US market, STARLUX is excited to help create memorable journeys by providing unique and exquisite service to customers traveling to and from Los Angeles to Taipei, and other Asian cities,” said STARLUX CEO Glenn Chai.
“With Los Angeles being the sister city of Taipei, along with our partnership with the LA Clippers, the city of angels is our airline’s perfect starting US destination.”
Luxury Service and a Taste of Taiwan
While the last few years have seen a plethora of budget airlines come onto the scene, STARLUX is bucking the trend — a luxury airline expanding in a world of no-frills carriers. With a philosophy that luxury should not be the exclusive experience of the elite but readily available to everyone, the company is experiencing impressive growth.
