Hop-On Jet Service, JSX, Becomes The First Air Carrier to Adopt Revolutionary Starlink High Speed Internet Service

Press Release From: JSX
Posted: Monday, April 25, 2022

JSX, the world’s highest rated hop-on air carrier, today announces it has selected SpaceX’s Starlink as its Wi-Fi provider. With travelers eagerly demanding better inflight Wi-Fi offerings, JSX has placed an order to begin outfitting 100 aircraft operating across the United States with this cutting-edge new technology, with the first Starlink-equipped JSX plane taking flight later this year. The service will be offered to all JSX Customers at no charge and will not require logging in or other complexities associated with legacy systems.


“Our Customers have repeatedly asked us when we would offer inflight Wi-Fi, and we’ve said that we’ll do it when we find the best product in the world. Today, I’m proud to say, we’ve found it and the wait for Wi-Fi on JSX is nearly over,” remarks JSX CEO Alex Wilcox. “Starlink’s technology will change the way JSX Customers access and enjoy the Internet while inflight and demonstrates another example of how our forward-thinking model of flying delivers the most simple, joyful, and seamless air travel experience available in the skies.” 

 

“High-speed, low-latency internet is critical in our modern age, and during air travel is no exception,” said SpaceX Vice President of Starlink Commercial Sales Jonathan Hofeller. “With Starlink, we’re able to provide an internet experience similar to or better than what passengers experience at home. We are creating a future that when all customers walk on to the plane, the internet just works – no hassles, no logins. By being the first air carrier to adopt Starlink, JSX is setting this new standard for air travel. 

 

JSX will work closely with SpaceX to certify, test, and outfit the air carrier’s growing fleet, with the first fully equipped JSX aircraft anticipated to take flight later this year. Delivering a seamless surfing experience, free access to Starlink Wi-Fi inflight is another world’s first in JSX’s class-defining suite of complimentary amenities.
