How to make the tools move faster when the tool is not cutting anything in Solidworks CAM?

I am drilling a set of holes on Stainless Steel. Since it is stainless steel, the speed and feed for the tool is very less. When the tool goes to the next hole after drilling 1 hole, it should go faster.(Because it is cutting nothing there). But the movement speed is very slow. I found out that it is moving at the same speed set for the tool. In Solidworks CAM silulation, it shows less than 5 minutes to mill. But in reality, it is taking around 30 minutes to mill.

Could someone please tell me how I can go faster from one hole to another, when the tool is not cutting anything?
Thanks in advance.
