Founded in 1976 by the 21 member-states of the Arab League, Arabsat has been serving the growing needs of the Arab world for over 30 years.
Operating a growing fleet of owned satellites at the 20°East, 26°East, 30.5°East, 39°East and 44.5°East positions of the geostationary orbit, Arabsat is the only satellite operator in the MENA region offering the full spectrum of Broadcast, Telecommunications and Broadband services. This capacity will continue to expand with the launch of Arabsat's new 6th-generation satellites, making the Arabsat satellite fleet the youngest in the region.
Arabsat also maintains strategic partnerships with most of the world's leading satellite companies and VAS integrators and recently acquired Hellas Sat, one of the leading telecom groups in southeastern Europe. These partnerships and acquisitions continue to expand Arabsat's reach with new orbital slots and frequency rights, allowing customers to reach farther than ever and deliver content and state-of-the-art solutions to any end-viewers audience or business partner around the world.
