Continuity for established customers: Arianespace’s Ariane 5 orbits satellites at the service of SES and HISPASAT

March 22, 2014 – Ariane Flight VA216

The workhorse Ariane 5 orbited a pair of payloads – ASTRA 5B for SES and HISPASAT’S Amazonas 4A – this evening, continuing the relationships with two customers that have come to rely on Arianespace’s launch services.

Lifting off from the Spaceport in French Guiana, Flight VA216 provided a total payload lift performance of some 9,580 kg. on the delivery mission to geostationary transfer orbit. It was one of multiple launch campaigns currently underway for Arianespace missions, covering its full launcher family – composed of the heavy-lift Ariane 5, medium-lift Soyuz and light-lift Vega.

VA216 - Mission Accomplished !

Service continuity for established customers: Arianespace's Ariane 5 orbits satellites at the service of SES and HISPASAT.

The workhorse Ariane 5 orbited a pair of payloads -- ASTRA 5B for SES and HISPASAT'S Amazonas 4A -- this evening, continuing the relationships with two customers that have come to rely on Arianespace's launch services.

Lifting off from the Spaceport in French Guiana, Flight VA216 provided a total payload lift performance of just under 9,580 kg. on the delivery mission to geostationary transfer orbit. It was one of multiple launch campaigns currently underway for Arianespace missions, covering its full launcher family -- composed of the heavy-lift Ariane 5, medium-lift Soyuz and light-lift Vega.

ASTRA 5B was deployed by Ariane 5 at 27 minutes into the mission, with Amazonas 4A separated from the launcher at 34 minutes after liftoff.
