Public charter operator JSX has equipped half of its fleet of Embraer regional jets with SpaceX’s Starlink airborne connectivity system and expects to have the remainder of the fleet equipped by the second quarter. The global launch customer for Starlink, JSX will offer the service free to passengers on its 30-seat Embraer ERJ aircraft. JSX began equipping its fleet with Starlink in early December following FAA supplemental type certificate approval.

“Starlink’s in-flight Wi-Fi service has been met by our customers with amazement and delight. It’s simply that good and incredibly easy to use,” said JSX CEO Alex Wilcox. “As we continue to outfit our fleet with this industry-leading product, offered to our customers totally free of charge, the gap between the JSX experience and the rest of the industry will continue to widen.”

The company provides scheduled air charter service on 43 routes from 22 cities, including international service to Cabo San Lucas. JSX said it is continuing to grow, adding one to two aircraft each month “for the foreseeable future.”
