Qatar Airways is collaborating with Starlink to enhance the inflight experience with complimentary high-speed connectivity. Passengers will be able to enjoy ultra-fast Wi-Fi speeds of up to 350Mbps.

Qatar Airways is collaborating with Starlink and will roll out a complimentary high-speed, low-latency internet connectivity experience onboard specific aircraft and routes. 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 video streaming their favourite entertainment and sports videos, gaming, enriched web-browsing and much more.

“Qatar Airways is proud to announce its agreement with Starlink to provide seamless and complimentary Wi-Fi to its global passengers,” said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive. “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’ inflight experience.”

The agreement with Starlink will allow passengers to have a rich, seamless Wi-Fi connectivity experience onboard with simple one-click access. The high-speed and low-latency network is powered by the Starlink satellite communications 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 the Qatar Airways fleet.

“Qatar Airways continues to lead the way prioritising the passenger experience,” said Jonathan Hofeller, Vice President of Starlink Commercial Sales, SpaceX. “With Starlink set to support the entire Qatar Airways fleet, passengers travelling between over 160 destinations around the world will be able to stay connected with the most advanced high-speed internet service from space. 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.”
