In response to growing travel demand, Taiwan’s luxury carrier STARLUX Airlines has announced a further expansion of its route network.

Hong Kong, a major aviation hub and Asia’s bustling metropolis, will be the airline’s newest destination, starting July 16, 2024.

Passengers can experience seamless travel between Taipei and Hong Kong with two daily non-stop flights. These will be operated by STARLUX’s state-of-the-art A350-900 and A330-900neo wide-body aircraft.

This exciting addition allows North American travelers flying from Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Seattle to conveniently connect to Hong Kong via Taipei.

Booking for the new route is now open. Passengers from the US can secure their flights for travel starting July 16 from Los Angeles and San Francisco. Flights for Seattle have departures commencing on August 16.

Connecting to Asia’s ‘World City’

Glenn Chai, CEO of STARLUX Airlines gave comments on the new route decision. “The launch of this new route reflects not only STARLUX’s strategic growth but also underscores the significance of Hong Kong as a key aviation hub.”

“We’re thrilled to connect US passengers to one of Asia’s busiest airports, facilitating business ventures, leisure getaways, and family reunions.”

Mr. Chai further emphasized the importance of Hong Kong as a destination city. “Hong Kong, also known as ‘Asia’s World City,’ consistently ranks among the top 20 most visited destinations globally.”

“It captivates travelers with its rich cultural heritage, diverse culinary scene, iconic landmarks, and vibrant shopping districts.”
