OneWeb puts 254th satellite into space

Friday 2 July 2021 | 09:52 CET | News
Another 36 OneWeb satellites went into space on 1 July, deployed by Arianespace and its Starsem affiliate at Russia's Vostochny Cosmodrome. The Soyuz Flight ST33 brings the full OneWeb fleet in orbit to 254 and marks the completion of the company's 'Five to 50' ambition. The programme seeks to bring enough satellites into orbit for connectivity services to the 50th parallel and above by the end of this year, to cover Canada, the UK, Northern Europe, Alaska and the world's Arctic regions.
