July 14. Spirit Airlines unveiled a new Wi-Fi service available to passengers on its Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, marking the first time a United States-based low-fare airline has offered high-speed internet.
Spirit partnered with Thales to install the high-speed connectivity solution FlytLIVE to cover the airline’s network across the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean, which offers access to internet services.
Guests will be able to enjoy streaming services, play games and connect on social media with their personal devices. When FlytLIVE-enabled planes connect to the new SES-17 satellite by September 2022, they will have access to the fastest Wi-Fi service of any U.S.-based airline.
Travelers can purchase Wi-Fi on their flight or at the time of booking, with a browsing option starting at $2.99 and a streaming option starting at $5.99. Passengers must sign in via their mobile devices and enter payment or voucher code information before gaining access to the high-speed internet.
