Taiwanese carrier Starlux Airlines is to deploy its first three Airbus A321neos on services to Vietnam, Macau and Malaysia.
The airline has taken delivery of its first aircraft, which was ferried to Taipei from Hamburg, via Dubai and Bangkok.
Starlux says it will commence a week-long series of familiarisation flights in Taiwan.
It says another two of the type will be delivered before the carrier commences services in January next year.
Starlux says these first three aircraft will be operated on routes to Macau, Da Nang, and Penang.
It is taking 10 A321neos from lessor GECAS.
Starlux has also ordered 17 A350s, a mix of -900s and -1000s, which will be introduced in 2021.
