With the financing delay having slowed work at the manufacturer, it will be a challenge for O3b to deliver on its promised milestone of getting two groups of four satellites delivered in time for launches, in the first half of 2013, aboard Russian-built Soyuz rockets operating from the vehicle’s new commercial base at Europe’s French Guiana spaceport, industry officials said.

Rigolle said Thales Alenia Space has indicated there is plenty of time to meet the current schedule. “We think our plan for two launches, four satellites each, in the first half of 2013 is solid,” he said.

Oh, and it looks like "somebody up high" likes taking risks and it seems we will go first on Soyuz from CSG...

The problem is that Galileo launch requires Soyuz-STB rocket, which is not in Kourou, and that there was agreement that the first launch will be with Soyuz-STA use. The problem is that French Ministry of Defense does not want to launch Pléiades satellite in the first flight. The Soyuz-STA dry rollout to the launch pad will be in February 2011 and, after that, the first launch will depend on payload: if Pléiades - then launch in May, if Galileo - then August/September 2011.

This what i'm hearing too, however I'm also hearing that there is some "political push" to have us launch first, i'll check again "upstairs"

Final preparations for the launch of the Metop-B polar-orbiting weather satellite in mid-2012 aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket operated by the French-Russian Starsem joint venture, and a late-2012 launch of the third Meteosat Second Generation geostationary-orbiting satellite as a co-passenger on a European Ariane 5 rocket.

The French Defense Ministry on Dec. 2 announced it has ordered two high-resolution optical and infrared reconnaissance spacecraft from Astrium Satellites and Thales Alenia Space in a $1.1 billion contract that calls for the first satellite to be launched in December 2016.
Quote
The two post-Helios satellites are called CSO, a French acronym for Optical Space Component.
Quote
The contract with Astrium and Thales Alenia Space includes an option for a third satellite that could be built if and when other nations elect to join the French CSO program.

According to http://www.russianspaceweb.com/kourou_els.html#2010 the first launch of a Soyuz from Kourou will be NET September 2011.

Quote:
By the end of the year, an unofficial but reliable source in the Russian space industry said that the first "dry" rollout of the Soyuz rocket to the launch pad was scheduled for April 20, 2011. As a result, final qualification of the facility for operation could take place by the middle of the summer, thus pushing the first Soyuz launch from Guiana to September 2011, as the earliest.

Arianespace will meet new challenges in 2011, as the complete European family of launch vehicles enters service. No less than six Ariane 5 launches are scheduled, including for the ATV 2, “Johannes Kepler”, on February 15.

Arianespace will begin operating the Soyuz launch complex in April, and plans to carry out at least two Soyuz launches during the year from the Guiana Space Center. At the same time, Arianespace has planned three Soyuz launches from the Cosmodrome in Baikonur, Kazakhstan.

Arianespace and ESA have also signed the production contract for the first operational launch of the Vega light launcher, while Arianespace and ELV have signed the VERTA framework contract concerning the supply of five Vega launchers following the qualification flight. Arianespace will take over responsibility for Vega launch facilities at the end of June, then carry out the first Vega launch during the second half of the year.

Arianespace plans a total of 12 launches in 2011.

According to Space News, Mr. Le Gall confirmed 9 launches 2011:

"In 2011, Arianespace expects to conduct six Ariane 5 launches. Le Gall said a seventh is unlikely because a few large satellites slated for launch in late 2011 are expected to be behind schedule. In addition to these launches, Arianespace expects to inaugurate operations of the Europeanized Soyuz rocket from Europe’s Guiana Space Center space port with two launches in 2011. Europe’s Vega small-satellite launcher is expected to make its inaugural launch in the second half of 2011, Le Gall said."

On the sidelines of the Space Summit session at the 98th Indian Science Congress Wednesday, T.K.

Later this year or early 2012, GSAT-10 will be launched again by Ariane.'
