Elon Musk touted SpaceX’s plans to use Starlink for inflight Wi-Fi on Thursday, and emphasized that his company is discussing with airlines to increase high-speed satellite Internet services.

“If you want to use it on your airliner, please let them know,” Musk wrote in a tweet, adding that Starlink could add “low latency ~ half gigabit connection in the air!”

Starlink is the company’s plan to build an interconnected Internet network consisting of thousands of satellites, known as the constellation in the aerospace industry, and aims to provide high-speed Internet for consumers anywhere on the earth.

So far, SpaceX has launched 1,740 Starlink satellites. The network has more than 100,000 users participating in the public beta in 14 countries/regions, and the service price is US$99 per month.

Earlier this year, SpaceX vice president Jonathan Hofeller stated that the company is in talks with “several” airlines to increase Starlink’s inflight Wi-Fi, noting that it has “aerospace products under development. “.

“So far, we have conducted some demonstrations and [are] It is hoped that this product will be finalized and installed on aircraft in the near future,” Hofler said in June.

Airlines work with satellite broadband providers to provide on-board Wi-Fi, among which Viasat and Intelsat (the latter bought Gogo’s commercial aviation business) are two such companies as Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways, American Airlines, and United Airlines. The company’s flights have increased connections. However, although existing services use satellites in distant orbits, the orbits of Starlink satellites are closer to the earth, which can increase the speed that passengers see in flight.

Hofeller also emphasized that Starlink “provides a global grid,” so “airlines fly under this global grid and they can connect wherever they go.”

Shares of Gogo, which now focuses on business aviation rather than commercial airlines, fell 5% in Thursday’s trading.

Musk has previously stated that “regulatory approval” is currently determining when airlines can use Starlink’s schedule because the service “must be certified for each aircraft type.”

“Focus on the 737 and A320 because they serve most people and are developed and tested on Gulfstream,” Musk said in a tweet in June.
