How can you be faster than airplanes? Airplanes travel at around 900-1000 km/h, which is more or less equal to the speed of a Hyperloop, right?

When traveling with airplanes a lot of the travel time is spent on airports. Checking in, going through customs, boarding, taxiing and take-off all take up a lot of time. And this proces is repeated at the destination airport. The Hyperloop can be as convenient as a metro-network. People get to the station, go through a brief security check, and board the next Hyperloop. Because of the high frequency (capsules could leave every 1 or 2 minutes) you won’t have to wait hours for the next Hyperloop to depart.
