Qatar Airways signed a partnership agreement with Starlink to roll out a complimentary high-speed and low-latency internet connectivity experience onboard specific aircraft and routes.
This partnership 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 Wi-Fi speeds of up to 350 Megabits per second, which can be used for a variety of internet-based services such as streaming videos, entertainment and sports videos, gaming, enriched web-browsing and much more.
HE Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said, "Qatar Airways is proud to announce its agreement with Starlink to provide seamless and complimentary Wi-Fi to its global passengers.
This exciting collaboration is not only in line with our industry-leading approach to technological adoption, but also serves as an unmissable opportunity to connect Starlink to our global passengers. We look forward to our passengers benefitting from this state-of-the-art addition to Qatar Airways' in-flight experience." Qatar Airways and Starlink are currently in the pre-launch phase of the rollout strategy across Qatar Airways fleet. The high-speed and low-latency network is powered by the revolutionary Starlink satellite communications system - the worlds largest satellite internet constellation.
Starlink delivers high-speed, low-latency internet to users all over the world, as it has recently been introduced to commercial airlines.
Qatar Airways/ is the latest airline to partner with Starlink. It is also being implemented by JSX, Hawaiian Airlines, airBaltic, and ZIPAIR.
