Hawaiian Airlines Begins Implementation of Starlink

Hawaiian Airlines has introduced the satellite internet service, Starlink.

The service started with flight HA70 from Honolulu to Long Beach on February 8th (Airbus A321neo, Registration: N228NA). It is planned to be introduced to 18 Airbus A321neo aircraft by spring, followed by Airbus A330 aircraft by the end of the year, and eventually to Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

Thanks to Starlink’s earth-orbiting satellites, reliable, high-speed, and low-latency connections are possible for trans-Pacific flights. No user registration or payment is required, allowing for seamless connection after boarding.

Both companies conducted tests to evaluate connectivity, including streaming videos, playing video games, and uploading or downloading large files, in cooperation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), ensuring compliance with safety standards.
