Launch postponement for Flight VA218 due to verifications with its OPTUS 10 payload

Ariane Flight VA218

The liftoff of Arianespace’s Flight VA218 has been postponed to enable verifications on one of the mission’s two satellite payloads, OPTUS 10.

Arianespace announced the postponement after being notified of the necessary additional checkout by Optus Networks Pty. Ltd.

A new launch date for this heavy-lift Ariane 5 mission will be announced as soon as possible.


Designated Flight VA218 in Arianespace’s numbering system, it is to carry OPTUS 10 with the MEASAT-3b satellite in a dual launch from the Spaceport in French Guiana.
