About Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) 

Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) will perform daily commercial flights into space as of 2014. Passengers will have a life-changing experience in viewing our planet Earth from 100 kilometers high. Plus, having been at that altitude, they can rightly be called astronauts. The flight will be performed in the Lynx spacecraft that is designed and build by XCOR in Mojave, California, USA. SXC is the launching customer of this space vehicle that comfortably takes off and lands like a normal airplane, from regular airports. The Curacao airport in the Caribbean will most probably be the first location – and Spaceport – outside the USA. The flexibility of the Lynx spacecraft makes it possible to operate from almost any commercial airport. The spaceflight costs $100,000 per flight. XCOR and SXC have sold 175 tickets so far.

The breakthrough technology of an almost unlimited reusability of this type of spacecraft signifies a completely new era for the aerospace industry. It includes superfast, long range, environmentally friendly travel outside our atmosphere. It is this vision that made KLM airlines decide to offer SXC a partnership.
