Arianespace Flight VA210: Liftoff!
 

November 10, 2012 – Ariane Flight VA210

Ariane 5 has lifted off on its 66th mission, carrying the EUTELSAT 21B and Star One C3 telecommunications satellites on Arianespace’s sixth heavy-lift mission of 2012.
 
The two payloads are to be deployed by Ariane 5 during a flight of 33 minutes.
 
Once in its orbital position of 21.5° East, EUTELSAT 21B will operate for the European-based Eutelsat Communications – providing coverage for data, professional video and government services over Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. 

Star One C3 will join the fleet of Brazil’s Star One – an Embratel company – with a footprint encompassing Miami and the entire South America region – including the Andean countries of Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Venezuela.  To be located at 75º West, this satellite will expand the capacity and coverage for TV, data and voice transmission services.
