Taipei-based carrier STARLUX Airlines has announced that it will launch a new route between Taipei and Clark starting August 15. Clark will be STARLUX’s third destination in the Philippines, following Manila and Cebu.
STARLUX is set to offer a more luxurious option for travelers flying to explore Taiwan’s tourist attractions or transiting to North America via Clark International Airport (CRK). STARLUX will operate an Airbus A321neo on the flight from Taipei to Clark. The aircraft is configured in a two-class layout, featuring eight fully-flat business class seats in a 2-2 configuration and 180 seats in Economy Class in a 3-3 setup.
For the North American transit market, STARLUX Airlines provides enhanced convenience with significantly reduced travel times.
“STARLUX’s presence in CRK is eagerly anticipated by travelers to and from Taipei, especially in these times when leisure and business travelers seek the most delightful experiences. Our new airport terminal provides timely amenities and conveniences that cater to their needs,” said Luzon International Premiere Airport Development (LIPAD) Corp. CEO Noel Manankil.
LIPAD, the consortium that operates CRK, has introduced a new, spacious terminal to accommodate CRK’s growing number of passengers who seek hassle-free travel options and ease of reaching their destinations.
The flight arrives in CRK at 9:45 AM and departs at 10:45 AM on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, flights arrive at 7:25 PM and depart at 8:25 PM. The travel time is approximately two hours.
STARLUX Airlines currently serves 17 destinations, including Los Angeles, Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Okinawa, Sapporo, Sendai, Macau, Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hanoi, Manila, and Cebu. The fleet continues to expand, with a current count of 20 aircraft, including 13 A321neos, four A330neos, and three A350s. The fourth A350 is expected to be delivered by the end of the year.
