Stellar Choices with STARLUX
STARLUX Airlines Sets Course for Second North American Destination

Following its presence in Los Angeles, STARLUX Airlines officially announced on December 16th that it will commence flights to its second North American destination – San Francisco. Initially, there will be three flights per week, increasing to daily flights starting at the end of 20th March next year.

STARLUX Airlines CEO, Zhai Jianhua, stated that San Francisco is the second most densely populated city in the United States, following only New York. Proximity to the technological hub of Silicon Valley makes it a crucial political and economic center in the American West, generating significant demand for international business travel. With one-third of its population being of Asian descent due to historical connections, the introduction of the San Francisco route by STARLUX Airlines will cater to the travel needs of passengers commuting between Northern California and Asia, further enhancing the airline’s network.

Collaboration with Alaska Airlines

After the successful launch of the Taipei to Los Angeles route, STARLUX Airlines announced Alaska Airlines (AS) as its inaugural aviation partner. Through this partnership, passengers can seamlessly connect STARLUX Airlines’ Los Angeles and San Francisco routes via Alaska Airlines’ North American network, facilitating swift travel to Taipei or further connecting to STARLUX Airlines’ 16 Asian routes. Meanwhile, Asian passengers can take advantage of STARLUX Airlines’ flights via Taipei to reach Los Angeles and San Francisco, connecting onward with Alaska Airlines to various destinations across North America.

As STARLUX Airlines continues to expand its footprint in Asia and North America, it is poised to meet the diverse needs of students, business travelers, family visits, and tourists, rapidly increasing its membership and passenger numbers.
