With the Lynx Mark I spacecraft closer to completion and first flight, the price will be raised to align more closely with the current market value of a commercial spaceflight.
XCOR entered the market to make space more accessible to the general public than ever before. As Lynx moves toward final assembly, demand is on the increase. Clients who have already entered the Lynx program and submitted a partial payment will not be affected by the change.
Over 300 tickets have been sold to early adopters of the product. These clients placed immense trust in the offering and the cost reflected this faith on their part. Up until the price increase on the 1st of January 2016, tickets can still be purchased for $100,000.
XCOR Space Expeditions offers flights in XCOR Lynx Mark I, reaching the edge of space at an altitude of 60 kilometers. The Lynx Mark II reaches the internationally recognized boundary of space, more than 100 kilometers above Earth. The flight path for both spacecraft is similar and equally exciting.
