Taiwan’s STARLUX Airlines has taken delivery of its first wide-body aircraft – an A330-900. It is the first of 26 Airbus wide-bodied set to join the airline’s fleet, comprising eight A330neo and 18 A350s.
The A330neo aircraft and one A350 are being acquired on lease from ALC, while the airline has 17 A350s on direct order with Airbus. Benefitting from the A330neo’s unbeatable operating economics and award-winning Airspace Cabin, the aircraft will feature a two-class cabin with 28 business-class seats and 269 economy-class seats.
The A330neo joins an existing fleet of seven single-aisle A321neo aircraft and will complement the airline’s network by flying regional routes from Taiwan to the wider Asia-Pacific.
At the same time, STARLUX has also signed up for the computer-based ACE (Airbus Cockpit Experience) suite training solution. Using a “learning by discovery” approach, STARLUX’s flying crew will be able to use the ACE trainer that simulates a 3-D cockpit environment with guided lessons and free play.Email Post to a Friend
