Qatar Airways x Starlink - You can now enjoy up to 500Mbps internet speed while flying


Qatar Airways has now announced a partnership with satellite-based internet service provider, Starlink. Through this collaboration, Qatar Airways aeroplanes will be equipped with Internet service support provided through Starlink - making it easier for passengers to continue accessing the Internet while in flight.

For the initial stage, Qatar Airways will complete three Boeing 777-300s under them with Starlink support, by the end of 2024. It is expected to be extended to cover all their modern flights within the next 2 years. This is a huge step for the Qatari company in establishing its position in the industry.

Additionally, Qatar Airways aims that all their customers will soon enjoy internet access up to 500Mbps while in flight. That allows them to use internet services as usual, including streaming, playing videos, etc. We have yet to confirm other details on the subject. Hopefully, local airways like MAS and AirAsia will follow suit.
