Frontier Airlines CEO says he’ll add Elon Musk’s Starlink to its planes when the WiFi service is cheap enough, but he’d probably charge passengers for it

Frontier CEO Barry Biffle told CNBC the airline had discussions with SpaceX about installing Starlink on planes. The budget airline doesn’t provide internet to passengers flying, so this would be its first WiFi deal. Starlink charges users $5,000 for its maritime service for use on boats and $135 for RVs. The airline hasn’t yet been able to find an inflight WiFi option at a reasonable price, Biffl said. He said he would probably charge passengers to use the WiFi on board its planes, saying he has no ancillary products that don’t make money.
