If you haven’t heard of STARLUX Airlines, this is a new airline based in Taipei, Taiwan and is planning on launching flights in January 2020 to Da Nang, Macau, and Penang.
The airline recently took delivery of its first aircraft, an A321neo, and has 9 more on order.

Additionally, they have 9 A350-900s and 8 A350-1000s on order with intentions on launching flights to Europe and the United States.

If I remember correctly, this airline was founded because STARLUX’s CEO’s brother kicked him out of Taiwanese airline EVA Air’s management.
And just today, they released their new safety video, which I absolutely love:
The animation is beautiful, and I don’t believe any other airline has adapted a style similar to this.
Truthfully, I’m very excited for this start-up airline. This airline actually seems to know what they’re doing, unlike previous start-up carriers that went bust in a short time.
What do you think of STARLUX? If you live in/travel through Taipei, will you fly on them?
