Hawaiian Airlines To Use   Pacific Flights

Starlink Internet On Trans

SpaceX has secured another airline

customer for its Starlink internet service. Hawaiian Airlines will use Starlink to provide Wi-Fi on its trans-Pacific flights, the company announced on April 25.

Back in 2021, SpaceX founder and

 CEO Elon Musk said SpaceX was working on making Starlink service available on various aircraft

Starlink is a good choice for

rural or remote customers (presumably including airline clients) who are looking for better internet connectivity, SpaceX representatives say. 

Users can expect

 to see download speeds between 100 Mb/s and 200 Mb/s, and latency as low as 20ms in most locations

The Starlink home page

states of its service to ground terminals. The page does not say what those speeds might be at 30,000 feet (9 kilometers) above Earth.

SpaceX regularly sends Starlink

 satellites to orbit aboard the company's Falcon 9 rockets. SpaceX now has launched more than 2,300 Starlink satellites and may eventually send up about 30,000.
