Virgin Galactic said it will release more tickets for flights into space as demand doubles.
The company launched its One Small Step qualification programme on Wednesday which requires a $1,000 (£769) deposit.
Sir Richard Branson's space firm said it had already received almost 8,000 registrations of interest for future flights.
The news comes as Virgin Galactic's latest company results show a net loss of $73m for the last quarter.
