On Thursday (March 28, 2024), STARLUX Airlines announced the launch of new direct service between Taipei (TPE) and Seattle (SEA) starting August 16, 2024.  Seattle will become the airline’s third U.S. gateway, joining Los Angeles and San Francisco.  Inbound travelers to Taipei can enjoy seamless one-stop connectivity with STARLUX to 21 Asian destinations, while customers traveling to Seattle can enjoy onward connectivity via STRALUX’s partner, Alaska Airlines.  The route will operate three times weekly with an Airbus A350 featuring four First Class, 26 Business Class, 36 Premium Economy and 240 Economy Class seats.

In Thursday’s announcement, STARLUX Airlines’ CEO, Glenn Chai, said,

“STARLUX’s broadened trans-Pacific routes reaffirm our dedication to expanding our U.S. network and to elevating the travel experience for our fast-growing customer base.  As a key economic and technological hub, Seattle is also steeped in diverse cultural influences and home to a thriving Asian community.  Moreover, we have finally arrived at the hub of our partner Alaska Airlines.  We believe STARLUX and Alaska Airlines will provide seamless service to travelers seeking to reach Asia.  STARLUX looks forward to strengthening our connections between these major West Coast cities with Taipei and larger Asia, and to building bridges between these dynamic and vibrant regions.” 

STARLUX guests will enjoy an elevated and luxurious travel experience.  First and Business Class customers will appreciate a private space with a sliding door and fully lie-flat seats.  In Premium Economy, guests will enjoy extra-legroom 40-inch RECARO seats with leg and footrests, a leather headrest, a generous pitch, and large 4K seatback IFE screens.  All customers will enjoy an exquisite dining experience, including signature Taiwanese dishes and amenities.  Customers can also pre-order their meals online to ensure they receive their first choice.
