Starting February 17, 2022, STARLUX Airlines will fly between Taipei and Fukuoka once a week on every Thursday. The airline currently operates a Taipei-Tokyo route and a Taipei-Osaka route. Fukuoka will mark the airline’s third destination in Japan. STARLUX plans to increase the frequency to two flights per week in March, and gradually increase the frequency in response to travel market demand.
Recently, Japan has eased border entry restrictions for some business travelers and students. Japan has long been the most popular destination among travelers in Taiwan. Despite the pandemic, STARLUX launched its Tokyo and Osaka routes last year to provide deluxe service to business travelers and their families. With two more A321neos being delivered at the end of this year and the expectation for the gradual recovery of overseas traveling in 2022, STARLUX plans to open more routes between Taipei and Japan in addition to Fukuoka next year.
STARLUX continues to expand its network and introduce new aircraft in spite of the impact of COVID-19. The delivery of eight A330-900s and 18 A350 XWBs will begin in the first half of 2022. With the wide-body aircraft in place, the network and total capacity of STARLUX will steadily grow, serving passengers in most major cities in Asia as the airline gradually develops its trans-oceanic routes to North America, planned for the end of next year.
