Singapore Airshow 2024: Starlux Orders Eight Airbus Jets

Taiwan-based carrier Starlux Airlines has placed a firm purchase order for eight Airbus aircraft. Signed at the Singapore Airshow 2024, the agreement comprises five A350F freighters and three A330Neo jets. With this order, Startlux Airlines will become the first to operate the A350F in the country, and it will be used on some of the world’s busiest cargo routes. Also, adding three A330Neos will help the carrier bolster its fleet. It will boast a two-cabin configuration, with 28 business class seats and 269 economy seats.

Starlux Airlines has an all-Airbus fleet of passenger aircraft, including A350-900, A330Neo and A321Neo. The A350F, which is currently under development, will be able to haul up to 111 tonnes of cargo and fly up to 4,700 nautical miles (8,700km). The aircraft will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent-XWB97 engines, efficient enough to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions by up to 40 per cent compared to the 747F.
