Safran's Skylounge Core Seats makes first flight on STARLUX Airlines
Taipei-based STARLUX Airlines has just completed its first flight with an Airbus A330neo equipped with Safran Seats' Skylounge Core business-class seats. STARLUX Airlines is the launch customer for this seat.
The first of the eight Airbus A330neo aircraft ordered by STARLUX Airlines was delivered on 18 February 2022. These aircraft are equipped with 28 Skylounge Core seats, specifically designed for long-haul aircraft such as the Airbus A330neo or Boeing 787.
The Skylounge Core seat is made in France, and provides the best Business Class features for an unrivalled consumer experience: direct access to the aisle, fully flat bed, comfortable living space and high privacy levels, featuring specific STARLUX modules.
