Starlux Airlines Shop: I Want Everything!

Starlux Airlines Shop: I Want Everything!

16

Starlux Airlines is Taiwan’s newest airline — I flew the airline shortly after it launched, and even have top-tier elite status with the carrier’s COSMILE loyalty program (thanks to a status match, but still…). The airline is currently in the process of expanding significantly, as it just took delivery of its first Airbus A350, which it plans to fly to LAX as of April 2023.

Anyway, I don’t know how I missed this until now, but Starlux Airlines has an online shop, and as an avgeek I kind of want everything. I’m someone who would usually much rather spend money on experiences than material goods, but this is an exception.

Starlux Airlines’ amazing merchandise

The Starlux Shop has an incredible selection of Starlux Airlines-branded merchandise. Typically when an airline has some sort of an online shop, I might find one or two things I like, since I’m not particularly materialistic, and don’t like clutter. But the Starlux Shop… well, that’s a different story.

The airline sells ridiculously cute destination-themed mugs, with one for each destination the airline serves.

Or there’s this Starlux keychain, which looks like a seatbelt.

Or there’s the Starlux air purifier and fragrance oil, so that your home can have the signature Starlux fragrance, “home in the air” (or maybe in this case it would be “air in the home?”). 😉

Or who wouldn’t want to go to the gym with this Starlux workout bottle, which is both Starlux Airlines and aviation themed?!

If you’re looking for a reusable bag, this Starlux water-resistant bag is pretty awesome.

And now for my two favorite items in the collection…

Starlux Airlines is selling its pilot uniforms online, minus the “stripes.” Specifically, you can buy the same jacket that Airbus A330neo pilots wear, and it’s awesome. I mean, would I look like a total cheeseball walking around Miami with this? Yes. But, like, have you seen how people dress in Miami? It would hardly stand out!

Last but most certainly not least, check out the Starlux night light music box. This is possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. It’s essentially a little night light with moving vehicles around a plane that plays Starlux Airlines’ landing music. This is too cute, I literally can’t deal, and I need to get my hands on two of these — one to put next to my bed, and one to put next to Miles’ crib (and maybe a third one, in case one of the first two breaks, because I can’t take that risk).

The good & bad news about the Starlux Airlines shop

There’s good and bad news about the Starlux shop. The bad news is that international shipping is only available to Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, and Singapore. That’s also the good news, since that saves a lot of us a lot of money.

I’m not going to lie, with Taiwan’s borders once again open, I’m seriously plotting the best way to get my hands on many of these products. I guess I can try to reach out to a local contact and have things shipped there (and then I’ll pick them up). Alternatively, if Starlux Airlines is willing to ship to the United States, I promise I’m willing to make a bulk order. 😉

Bottom line

While plenty of airlines have online stores with merchandise, Starlux Airlines is in a league of its own when it comes to how cool its selection of products is. I’ve never seen an airline sell so many tempting things.

Anyone else find Starlux’s merchandise as awesome as I do?

    Starlux has 3 shops in downtown Taipei. Also, I know for EVA Air and China Airlines, you can order items online, and they will give it to you on your flight. Maybe Starlux will offer the same service in the future, given they're all Taiwanese airlines.

    Taiwanese border is opened! I just arrived yesterday with virtually no rule except for giving you 4 rapid tests which they don’t enforce you to report the result back lol

    long time listener here from Penang -- happy to get these for you then reship to ya in the States.. drop me a note :)

  4. Judy Guest

    I'm going to Taiwan in December to visit family! Email me if you want to pick it up. I live in Florida even.

  5. Kevin B Guest

    Damn, I really want the nightlight/music box for my kid, for some reason that item only ships to Taiwan and my forwarder I use only provides China and HK mailboxes.

  6. François Guest

    Lucky, have you looked at the Lufthansa WorldShop recently? They have a ton of merchandise from upcycled from retired aircraft, plus a decent amount of branded accessories.

    A lot of hotels would be happy to accept a delivery and hold it for you if you have an upcoming stay. That could be an option if you plan on a trip to Asia.

    Those mugs are glorious! WANT!

    What a cool collection. I even thought of someone who could use the landing music thing as well. Let's petition for international shipping! Now, who do I know in Taiwan...

    The good thing about promo items is that airlines don't make them, promo companies do. I think you can find any of this. https://www.etsy.com/listing/772874075/crew-airplane-buckle-keychain-for?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_c-accessories-keychains_and_lanyards-keychains&utm_custom1=_k_CjwKCAjw5P2aBhAlEiwAAdY7dJ0wdO0_DSnvEfk5ElQxKUkkwjQaa-PS8NwQS4FYCpD_EqLJxOMvwRoCvpgQAvD_BwE_k_&utm_content=go_12574412283_122532970707_507558083038_aud-1184785539738:pla-352693456253_c__772874075_130477492&utm_custom2=12574412283&gclid=CjwKCAjw5P2aBhAlEiwAAdY7dJ0wdO0_DSnvEfk5ElQxKUkkwjQaa-PS8NwQS4FYCpD_EqLJxOMvwRoCvpgQAvD_BwE

    Nice branding and marketing initiative. Airline geeks really get into this stuff (see KLM delft houses). I particularly like how they sell the pilots jackets and the collection of destination-themed mugs.

    Might be an exciting stress test for Amex Platinum concierge?

  12. JB Guest

    I love the jacket! I also live in Miami, so we can wear it outside together :)

    1. 305 Guest

      Ben better watch out. He went from thinking he’s gonna be the only one in Miami wearing that jacket to creating an entire crew of us. Folks might start thinking Starlux opened a pilot base here!

  13. Adil Guest

    What would Lucky do if Qatar, Emirates and Etihad also offered music boxes with their onboard music? :)

  14. Nick Yeh Guest

    My family lives in Taiwan and I go back every year. Happy to arrange for it to be delivered to taiwan and then shipped to the states!

  15. PM1 Guest

    Wow! I would usually be uninterested in something like this but I AM now after seeing the creativity. Maybe we can start a campaign for them to ship items Stateside. Kudos Starlux!
