Taqnia Space inks contract with Eutelsat to expand in-flight connectivity

Tuesday 31 July 2018 | 10:36 CET | News
Saudi Arabia's Taqnia Space (TSC) has signed a multi-year contract with Eutelsat including incremental multi-transponder wide-beam capacity on the Eutelsat 70B satellite, as well as the fifth HTS spotbeam on Eutelsat 3B, on which it already operates the four others. This will enable Taqnia Space to add more space assets to its high density bandwidth coverage over MENA and Europe, and expand for the first time TSC in-flight connectivity services over Central and South-East Asia.
