With our daily Los Angeles-Taipei service and new San Francisco destination, STARLUX is thrilled to offer our U.S.-based passengers increased convenience traveling from North America to Asia. With San Francisco’s proximity to Silicon Valley and status as a significant political, economic, and tourism hub, the City by the Bay has established itself as a top travel destination. And with one-third of its population of Asian descent, our new route will cater to these travelers’ needs too, whether they are visiting family, vacationing, or traveling for work. STARLUX strives to continue expanding and is also planning a new Seattle route next year.
