Spirit Airlines Will Begin Installing Wi-Fi

Article By:

Ultra-low cost carrier Spirit airlines plans to install Wi-Fi across its fleet by Summer 2019. Spirit will charge an average of $6.50 for the additional service. The exact price will be higher or lower based on the route and length of the flight.

The airline expects Wi-Fi coverage across 97% of its network by Summer 2019, with the exception of Latin America. It also expects a significant bump in internet speed once its partner (Thales Group) launches a new satellite in 2021.

It’s always cool to see more airlines installing Wi-Fi to keep their data hungry customers happy. Spirit will begin retrofitting its aircraft with the new equipment this Fall. I still haven’t actually flown Spirit. Should I give them a chance?
