Sky Perfect JSAT has ordered Superbird-9 from Airbus, targeted to launch in 2024, the companies announced Thursday. JSAT estimates the total investment including this contract is around $275 million (30 billion yen).

We strongly believe that Superbird-9 will play a significant role in providing our advanced communications service and developing new space business,” commented Eiichi Yonekura, SKY Perfect JSAT Holdings representative director, president and CEO.

At the time , Jean-Marc Nasr, head of Airbus Space Systems, said he expects the company to sign three OneSat orders in 2021.
