Thuraya has signed a service partner agreement with Africell Holding (a subsidiary of Lintel Holding). Through this Africell, will be providing Thuraya’s data and voice services in Gambia, Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Thuraya provides seamless satellite coverage over Africa, ensuring that even consumers out of GSM reach can access reliable satellite communications. It is also the only satellite operator that offers satellite roaming capabilities for GSM consumers.

Thuraya’s CEO, Samer Halawi said:”Africa offers significant business opportunities due to its size, geographical composition, population and economical potential. The new partnership with Africell is part of our strategy to enhance our distribution network and reach out to our vertical industry consumers wherever they choose to operate. We aim to empower people and businesses in Africa through modern, cutting-edge and reliable value satellite communications.”

Ziad Dalloul, CEO of Lintel also said: “Offering Thuraya services will provide us with a competitive edge especially in countries like the Democratic Republic of Congo which is the size of Western Europe where Thuraya services would allow our subscribers to stay in touch even in the most remote areas.”
