Thuraya NOVA SIM Plans

At OSC we offer three options for Thuraya pre-paid airtime; Standard Pre-Paid, NOVA Pre-Paid and Backup Pre-Paid. As you can see from the table below, the Thuraya NOVA SIM plans offer greater benefits, such as extended validity for Thuraya Satellite Phone customers than those on standard and back up SIM plans. However, these more attractive conversation rates are only available if the customer is within a NOVA zone.
