Spirit Airlines Adds High-Speed Wi-Fi on Its Airbus A320 and A321

Spirit is getting fancy. Guests can now binge their favorite shows via Spirit Wi-Fi on flights operated by its Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft.

Spirit partnered with Thales to install the high-speed connectivity solution FlytLIVE to cover Spirit’s network across the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean. Guests can enjoy an at-home level of experience in the air while viewing video from their streaming services, playing games and connecting on social media with their personal devices.

Spirit expects to provide the fastest Wi-Fi service of any U.S.-based airline when all FlytLIVE-enabled planes are connected to the new, very high-throughput SES-17 satellite by September 2022.

“This is a real groundbreaking moment in the industry as Spirit adds in-flight amenities and product options that have previously not been available on ultra-low fare carriers,” said Matt Klein, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer for Spirit Airlines. “We’re continuing to deliver the best value in the sky by providing options that are important to our Guests, like our high-speed Wi-Fi service, while keeping our focus on affordable fares to provide our Guests with More Go.”

In total, more than 80 percent of Spirit’s fleet has Wi-Fi capability. The expansion of Wi-Fi functionality to Spirit’s existing A319 sub-fleet will be determined at a later date. Spirit plans to gain 24 brand new A320neo planes in 2022 for a projected fleet-wide total of 197 by the end of the year, and 33 more new planes projected for delivery in 2023.

Pricing and Details

Just like bags, seat assignments and refreshments, Wi-Fi service will also come at an extra cost. In addition to purchasing Wi-Fi on the flight, Guests can pre-purchase Wi-Fi at the time of booking on spirit.com effective July 13, 2022, and on the mobile app effective August 10, 2022, for flights on or after August 24, 2022.
