Its partnership with GTNT will ensure that Thuraya can provide uninterrupted satellite communication services to federal, departmental and corporate users in the fields of energy, petrochemical, construction, logistics, forestry, relief and media sectors.

Thuraya’s CEO, Samer Halawi said: “Russia with its countless energy, defence, media and maritime enterprises is an exciting prospect for Thuraya. Our superior satellite network provides seamless, border-to-border coverage within the country, and our impeccable yet affordable services will enable people in the prominent Russian market to communicate instantly regardless of their location.”

Halawi further added, "We have joined forces with our trusted partner GTNT to expand our distribution network and reach out to our vertical industry consumers wherever they may choose to operate in Russia."

Alexey Ostapchuk, GTNT general director said: “Our company GTNT has already completed the deployment of Thuraya’s network in the Russian segment of the system. We are ready to deliver mobile satellite telephony, data transmission and broadband internet access to all federal, departmental and corporate users as well as geologists, builders, transport, forestry and rescue workers, primarily those working in areas not covered by conventional communication systems. We hope to bring all corners of our big country closer and within reach through satellite-based mobile communications.”
