Aircell announced that it will charge a flat monthly fee of $1,495 for unlimited access to its air-to-ground broadband data service by business aviation users. “We believe all-you-can-use pricing makes the most sense for the business aviation market,” said CEO Jack Blumenstein, adding that per-passenger pricing models will be rolled out for fractional jet owners after the broadband service debuts later this year. The broadband hardware needed to access the service aboard large-cabin business jets will cost $125,000. He added that lower-priced systems for smaller business jets will also be offered.
