JSX taps SpaceX's Starlink for high-speed WiFi access

By Doug Gollan, April 22, 2022

JSX offers by-the-seat scheduled flights nationally using private jet terminals saving time for its passengers

By-the-seat scheduled private jet operator JSX has selected SpaceX Starlink to provide WiFi for its 77 Embraer regional jets. The aircraft fly in an executive configuration with 30 seats.

JSX uses private terminals to save time at the airport. The deal covers up to 100 aircraft.

The first Starlink-equipped JSX plane takes flight later this year.

The service will be offered at no charge. It 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 WiFi on JSX is nearly over,” said JSX CEO Alex Wilcox.

He added, “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.

He added, “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 onto 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.”

The operator will work with SpaceX to certify, test, and outfit the carrier’s fleet.

JSX Route Network

JSX currently flies to Austin (AUS), Burbank (BUR), Concord/Napa (CCR), Dallas Love Field (DAL), Houston Hobby (HOU), Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), Monterey (MRY), Oakland (OAK), Orange County (SNA), Phoenix (PHX), San Diego (SAN), Reno-Tahoe (RNO), and Westchester County (HPN), with seasonal service to Destin (DSI).
