The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence has renewed a contract worth £15.7 million with Airbus Defence and Space to provide the core WelComE welfare service to the British Armed Forces until August 2022.

Airbus Defence and Space has been providing WelComE services to the United Kingdom for 16 years including delivering welfare communications in a number of operational environments. The service has evolved and been expanded over the years from the provision of satellite phones and associated facilities to full WiFi services and video calling on operational bases.

Over 132,000 service personnel have used the service and over 500 million minutes of calls have been provided by the WelComE service.
