Starlux Airlines enters maindeck cargo business

At the Singapore Airshow, Taiwan's Starlux Airlines placed a firm order for five A350F and three more A330neo aircraft to add to the four already in operation.


CEO Glenn Chai explained that the carrier had "continuously nurtured the cargo market since its inception [2017], capitalising on the strategic advantages offered by Taiwan’s geographical location."


The carrier’s fleet consists exclusively of Airbus aircraft, which is why Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, Airbus EVP sales, commercial aircraft, says: "We love working with Starlux in building and strengthening its fleet. The A350F will fit seamlessly into this fleet and enable the carrier to compete with the major players in key cargo markets."


Currently under development, the A350F can carry a payload of up to 111 t and can fly up to 4,700 nm / 8,700 km. The A350F will enable Starlux Cargo to serve all heavy cargo markets around the globe. (ah)
