Spanish Mountaineer ventures World's Highest Summit with Thuraya Solutions

Spanish mountaineer Edurne Pasaban has once again selected Thuraya as her satellite communications partner for her forthcoming expedition to Mount Everest. During her trek up the world's highest summit Pasaban will be deploying Thuraya XT and Thuraya IP for weather forecasts, website updates and to stay in touch with family and friends.

Having attempted Everest in 2001, Pasaban will be climbing the peak this year without the use of artificial oxygen. She is renowned for being the first woman to climb all fourteen 8,000 meter high summits across the globe. "I have decided to undertake this journey with Thuraya solutions again, as my previous experience last year with them while climbing Annapurna was a great success. Communications on such a challenging trip cannot be taken for granted. I am ensuring that I use the most reliable solution, which I believe is what Thuraya's about," said Pasaban.

Thuraya's Vice President Corporate and Marketing Communications, Ebrahim K. Ebrahim said, "We are pleased to sponsor Ms. Edurne Pasaban on another of her challenging journeys. We look forward to following the success of her trip using Thuraya IP, which enables her to update her website regularly. Both our XT handheld and Thuraya IP are supported by a robust network that ensures consumers from all remote areas, including Mount Everest, are provided with the highest quality satellite communication services to keep them in touch." - Emirates News Agency, WAM
