STARLUX Airlines Launches New Service Between Taipei and Singapore
STARLUX has officially launched twice-weekly service between Taipei and Singapore. The new route is in addition to the launch of flights to Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City and Manila earlier this year.
On Thursday (September 23, 2021), STARLUX announced the launch of inaugural service between Taipei and Singapore, which will initially operate two times weekly. Upon arrival at Singapore’s Changi Airport on Thursday, the Airbus A321neo was greeted with a traditional water cannon salute. Singapore is a center of economic and cultural events, as well as an important Asian transportation hub. The carrier opened the route in response to increasing cargo demand and hoped to provide a convenient link for commuters between Singapore and Taiwan in the post-pandemic period. STARLUX advises all guests to review the latest destination travel rules, regulations and quarantine procedures prior to departure.
In Thursday’s announcement, Changi Airport Group’s Managing Director of Air Hub Development, said,
“We are delighted to welcome STARLUX Airlines to our Changi Family. This new service will provide passengers with more travel options to Taiwan and presents growth opportunities for leisure and business travel in the region. Changi Airport Group strives to maintain connectivity to the world despite the pandemic, and we look forward to welcoming back more visitors as our air borders gradually open.”
STARLUX continues to adjust their flights schedules and aircraft delivery plans in response to changing conditions caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In this regard, the airline has opted to reopen routes to important business gateways rather than popular leisure destinations. Currently, STARLUX offers service to nine destinations from Taiwan including Macau, Penang, Bangkok, Osaka, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City, Manila and Singapore.
STARLUX operates five 188-seat Airbus A321neos with eight Business Class and 180 Economy Class seats. Business Class seats convert into an 82-inch full lie-flat bed and every Economy seat features a personal entertainment system. The STARLUX A321neo cabin was designed by BMW Group Designworks and features natural and warm colors to evoke the sense of being home. Flights on departure from Taiwan feature Business Class meals prepared by the Michelin Taiwanese restaurant Longtail, while Economy Class guests enjoy a menu created by the renowned Japanese-style grilled meat restaurant Hutong in Taiwan.
