Eutelsat call the "African Broadband Satellite" now "KONNECT "
Launch is still scheduled for H2 2019.
Easy to be confused with "KONNECT VHTS"  :o

There is the KONNECT HTS fleet and the KONNECT VHTS fleet. EUTELSAT ABS is HTS.

I found this article today morning:
http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/technik/alain-charmeau-die-amerikaner-wollen-europa-aus-dem-weltraum-kicken-a-1207322.html
Google translate:
Quote
SPIEGEL ONLINE: The new "Ariane 6" rocket is scheduled to launch in July 2020 for the first time. Can you do that?

Charmeau: Yes. We are on schedule.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: So that the project does not become a piper, you need support. Europe's governments should commit to buy a certain amount of rockets. What commitments do you have meanwhile?

Charmeau: The first start is funded with the development contract. Now we need customers for launches number two, three and so on. After all, we have already received an order from the European Commission.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: There they want to buy two missiles for "Galileo" navigation satellites.

Charmeau: According to our plans, we need a total of five launches in 2021 and eight in 2022. Part of this needs to be done by the governments or the EU Commission.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: What do you imagine?

Charmeau: We are thinking of a total of four "Galileo" launches, plus a probe from the Esa, plus one German and one French government mission. We need a clear signal that we can start producing the other rockets. And we need a total of seven contracts for guaranteed launches. Till the end of June.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: That sounds sporty. And why just until the end of June?

Charmeau: Because the production of the first rocket is already running. Our factories, our teams now need more orders to continue their work. The second launch of the "Ariane 6" should already take place in late 2020 or early 2021, depending on customer requirements. That's in less than three years.

Moscow. May, 23rd. INTERFAX.RU - Three more launches of Soyuz-ST carrier rockets at the Kourou space center in French Guiana are planned by the end of this year, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said.

On May 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks in St. Petersburg with French President Emmanuel Macron, who will pay an official visit to Russia.

Speaking about the cooperation between Russia and France, the assistant to the head of state noted the space sphere. "Since 2011, 17 joint launches of the Soyuz-ST carrier rocket at the Kourou space center in French Guiana have been carried out since 2011. The last one today was held on March 9, three more are scheduled before the end of 2018," Ushakov said.

"The Greek University can and build microservices from start to finish. At the moment, four Greek universities join forces, Greece in one and a half to two years from now will have its own array of micro-satellites, "said Pappas, adding that" the two satellites that are already in space , Hellas Sat 3, and Hellas Sat 4 to be launched at the end of the year, will allow Greece to have many transponders. Some of them are also used for the needs of the Greek Armed Forces. "

This also led to the ISRO recalling GSAT-11 for conducting thorough checks. “After a thorough check and additional tests, it was found fit for launch,” the official said. The space agency is now waiting for a slot from Arianespace, the company which will launch the satellite, the official added.

The official confirmation from Arabsat:

...The award was handed by the President of Cyprus to Mr. Khalid Balkheyour, President and CEO of Arabsat who stated the following: “ARABSAT accepts with great honour the CIPA award and came to Cyprus to stay for a long time.  The business environment and the strategic geographic position of Cyprus are the main factors for our successful operations. Since Hellas Sat became member of ARABSAT group we expanded our operations with the launch of HS3 satellite and the procurement HS4 which is expected to be launch at the end of 2018.”

The James Webb Space Telescope will produce first of its kind, world-class science. Based on recommendations by an Independent Review Board, the new launch date for @NASAWebb is March 30, 2021.

#Arianespace has a busy schedule for the second half of 2018, including three missions in less than two months: #Ariane5’s next flight w/ #Galileo satellites (July 25), the #Vega mission to orbit Aeolus (late Aug) and the 100th launch of Ariane 5 (early Sept). #MissiontoSuccess

Ariane 5 VA243 early September

Re-stating, then extrapolating:
That's VA244 on July 25; then VA243 in early September, followed by BepiColombo on the putative VA245 on NET October 5, and then a dual GTO VA246 in November near year's end?

If the payloads are ready, could another dual GTO launch, a VA247, fit into the Ariane 5 launch cadence in December before year's end?

EDITED 7/26 for clarification
