Recently, Qatar Airways became the largest airline to collaborate with Starlink and, in the future, will roll out a complimentary, high-speed, low-latency, internet connectivity experience onboard specific aircraft and routes.
Starlink’s service will be a further enhancement of Qatar Airways’ 5-star onboard experience. Once the service is active, passengers will be able to enjoy ultra-fast WiFi speeds of up to 350 Mbps that can be used for a variety of internet-based services such as video streaming their favorite entertainment and sports videos, gaming, enriched web-browsing and much more.
Qatar Airways agreement with Starlink will allow passengers to receive a seamless Wi-Fi connectivity experience onboard with one-click access. The high-speed and low-latency network is powered by the Starlink SATCOM system – the world’s largest satellite internet constellation engineered and operated by SpaceX. Qatar Airways and Starlink are currently in the pre-launch phase of the rollout strategy across Qatar Airways fleet.

In fact, as soon as passengers step onboard the plane the internet works seamlessly throughout their flight from gate to gate, and all from the comfort of their seats.” — Jonathan Hofeller, Vice President, Starlink Commercial Sales, Starlink
