Aero, a semi-private airline based in the U.S., has tapped SpaceX to equip its fleet with Starlink’s in-flight connectivity service, the company announced Thursday.  

Aero pitches itself as “the future of first class,” and its semi-private jets have just 16 seats. The airline operates out of private terminals and flies select routes in North America. 

The company is equipping its fleet of ERJ135 with Starlink. The service is now available on all flights between Los Angeles, California; Dallas, Texas; Sun Valley, Idaho; Aspen, Colorado; and Los Cabos, Mexico. 

“We aim to provide an exceptional guest experience and so we are thrilled to deliver fast, free, and reliable in-flight Wi-Fi on all of our scheduled routes,” said Ben Klein, Aero CEO. “Equipping all of our ERJ-135s with Starlink reflects our deep commitment to ensuring that the Aero experience remains best-in-class throughout our guests’ journey.”
