In these unprecedented times, we are all focused on keeping our families, colleagues and communities safe and healthy.
Inmarsat and its global community of partners – alongside the entire satellite communications industry – are working around the world and around the clock, to ensure that our customers are able to rely on our connectivity solutions for vital safety and humanitarian services, and to keep the arteries of global trade flowing.
At this crucial time, we are proud to be supporting the maritime and aviation industries, governments, humanitarian organisations and a worldwide community of public and private enterprises, as they respond to such a difficult range of challenges. Their ingenuity and resilience is an inspiration.
I am also proud of the dedication of my colleagues at Inmarsat and our many partners for the ways in which they have adapted, so rapidly, to new ways of working. And I am delighted to say that Inmarsat’s global communications networks and connectivity solutions not only continue to support customers on land, at sea and in the air but are growing to deliver ever more enhanced services.
If you would like to learn more about how we have been working with our partners and customers, please see the links to the stories below. We will continue to update these stories over the coming weeks and months.
