Thuraya delays satellite launch

Launch of its new T3 satellite now set for November.

Abu-Dhabi based satellite telecommunications provider Thuraya has delayed the launch of its latest satellite to November.

The launch of the T3 satellite was originally scheduled to take place this month.

"The launch of our Thuraya-3 satellite will now be in mid-November," a Thuraya spokesman told local newspaper Gulf News.

The spokesman explained that the launch schedule had been revised several times due to the availability of launch services from Sea Launch, its space launch company.
