On Wednesday (November 24, 2021), Taiwanese carrier STARLUX Airlines announced the launch of new once-weekly service between Taipei and Fukuoka on Thursdays from February 17, 2022. Starting in March 2022, the carrier will increase the frequency on the route to twice-weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fukuoka will become the airline's third destination in Japan, in addition to Tokyo and Osaka, and the airline will add more Japanese destinations next year. In spite of the pandemic, STARLUX continues to expand their network and introduce new aircraft. The carrier will receive eight Airbus A330-900s and 18 A350 XWBs during the first half of 2022. With the new widebody aircraft, STARLUX will steadily grow, serving most major cities in Asia, and launch trans-oceanic routes to North America by the end of the next year.
