On Monday, Starlux Airlines has taken delivery of its first Airbus A330-900neo. The new Airbus is part of a lease agreement with ALC, which includes eight A330neo and one A350. Additionally, the airline has placed a direct order for 17 A350, bringing its total widebody orders to 26 aircraft. Starlux’s A330neo features a two-class-cabin, consisting of 28 business class seats and 269 seats in economy class.
“I am delighted to welcome our first A330neo, as it marks a key milestone in our growth. Having already operated modern and efficient single-aisle A321neo, we are confident that the A330neo will bring even more flexibility and efficiency in our network strategy, whilst optimising cost efficiency and achieving high passenger comfort”, says K.W. Chang, Founder and Chairman of Starlux Airlines.
In order to get the flying crews further accustomed to the modern Airbus cockpits, Starlux has joined the ACE (Airbus Cockpit Experience) Suite. The program offers a 3D cockpit simulation with different training lessons.
Starlux Airlines already operates seven Airbus A321neos, serving regional routes in Taiwan and international routes in the Asian-Pacific area.
