On Tuesday (January 24, 2023), ch-aviation announced that Taiwan’s STARLUX Airlines has been named the winner of their ‘World’s Youngest Aircraft Fleet 2023, as well as ‘Asia’s Youngest Aircraft Fleet 2023’ awards. STARLUX operates a fleet of 18 aircraft with an average age of only 1.22 years. To determine the winner, ch-aviation maintains an extensive aircraft database, which includes over 4,800 active operators and more than 69,000 aircraft, plus 1,000 lessors worldwide. ch-aviation only included active commercial passenger and cargo operators with five or more aircraft, and used consolidated Air Operator Certificate lists for airline Groups with multiple AOCs (aircraft in a VIP configuration excluded).

In Tuesday’s announcement, ch-aviation’s CEO, Thomas Jaeger, said,

“ch-aviation’s Youngest Fleet Award recognises airlines dedicated to keeping their fleet young and using new generation aircraft. This subject is extremely important to all of us in the industry and the whole world because CO2 emissions are a global issue affecting us all. We at ch-aviation believe it is critical to recognise those airlines that truly work hard toward fixing this problem by keeping their fleets young because they’re the ones that make a difference. This Award acknowledges their efforts and is an incentive to keep up the good work. It is essential to say that this Award is entirely based on non-manipulable fleet data. There is no jury or any other subjective parameter involved.”
