Taiwan-based Starlux Airlines and the Los Angeles Dodgers have announced a three-year renewal agreement to be the team’s exclusive Taiwanese Airline Partner.
The renewal, which runs through the 2026 Major League Baseball season, coincides with the recent announcement of the Dodgers’ signing Japanese star players Shohei Ohtani and Yamamoto Yoshinobu. Starlux Airlines operates daily flights on the Los Angeles-Taipei route and will offer Dodgers-themed amenities on flights departing from Los Angeles.
“We are so pleased to extend our rewarding relationship with Starlux Airlines,” said Lorenzo Sciarrino, senior vice president, global partnerships, Los Angeles Dodgers. “As the Dodgers embark upon a momentous new era in the history of this storied and iconic franchise, we are thrilled to have such a successful partner that shares our ambitions to be a star on the global stage.”
Starlux will be well-represented at Dodger Stadium. Its presence will include a permanent pavilion roof sign along with other stadium signage, such as the carrier’s name displayed on the ballpark’s outfield wall. The Dodgers are the second L.A. professional sports team to partner with Starlux on the heels of the Clippers’ partnership with the carrier announced in March 2023.
“Since introducing our inaugural U.S. destination to Los Angeles in April 2023, we’ve celebrated significant accomplishments together,” said Starlux Chief Executive Officer Glenn Chai. “This past season saw the Dodgers’ most attended games in the MLB and the Starlux Los Angeles-Taipei route became one of the hottest tickets among travelers between the U.S. and Asia. The 2024 MLB season promises to be even better.”
