Ousted EVA Airways chairman retaliates with new airline

Chang Kuo-wei plans new international carrier, a first in 30 years for Taiwan

Taiwan’s StarLux Airlines founder Chang Kuo-wei was ousted as chairman of Eva Airways after a succession brawl erupted following his father’s death in January 2016.

TAIPEI -- A leading Taiwanese aviation executive has a big dream -- to launch the island's third major commercial carrier as the "Emirates of Taiwan."

That dream may be closer to fulfilment than expected. StarLux Airlines has begun preliminary preparations for takeoff from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport by the end of 2019 -- making it Taiwan's first possible international aviation entrant in 30 years.
