After the contract signed in April and May 2018 for an Ariane 5 mission in 2020 to orbit the BSAT-4b satellite and four contracts for the Vega launcher's first proof-of-concept flight with the Small Spacecraft Mission Service (SSMS), Arianespace's order book stands at euro 4.7 billion. It includes 56 launches for 32 customers (70% commercial and 30% institutional, in terms of the number of launches), with 16 by Ariane 5, 28 by Soyuz, 10 by Vega/Vega C and two by Ariane 6.

Spire selects Arianespace to launch the company’s small satellites on multiple Vega flights.

The multi-launch contract with Spire – a company providing weather, maritime, and aviation data to public and private customers – will cover a significant number of CubeSats to be launched on Vega as part of the Small Spacecraft Mission Service Proof Of Concept (POC) flight in 2019, as well as options on subsequent Vega flights.

Contrary to a few reports, there was no pressure on ISRO nor were the two new launches a quid pro quo for taking GSAT-11 to space, he said. GSAT-31 and 30 would be signed this month only because launches with Arianespace must be committed four months before launch date that ISRO sought — before December 15 — he said.

The national space agency had envisioned that its two GSLV rockets would fully take over geostationary orbit launches and that GSAT-11 — its heaviest to date and most ambitious for digital communication — would be its last satellite to go outside India for a launch. But early this year, it realised that upgrading a GSLV-Mk2 engine would need more time. The bigger Mark 3 was also not available in time.

“We already knew that we have to look for outside launch again for these two satellites,” Dr. Sivan said.

Horizons 3e is currently scheduled for launch on 7 September, 2018 during a window that is currently scheduled to open at 5:56 pm EDT and closes at 6:31 pm EDT. Following a successful launch, Horizons 3e will be placed at the 169° East orbital location, where it will undergo in-orbit testing prior to its expected in-service date in the first quarter of 2019.

"As per Arianespace protocol, the launch date must be signed four months prior to lift-off. We need to launch GSAT-31 by 15 December as the satellite (INSAT-4CR) to be replaced has a lifespan till January," added Sivan.

Cross-post, ADM-Aeolus launch delayed 23 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds:
http://www.arianespace.com/mission-update/vega-flight-vv12-delay/

The liftoff of Arianespace’s Flight VV12 with Europe’s Aeolus satellite has been delayed by 24 hours due to winds at altitude over the Spaceport in French Guiana...With this one-day postponement, the liftoff of Flight VV12 is now set for August 22 at exactly 6:20:08 p.m., local time in French Guiana – pending an improvement of the wind conditions at altitude.

Cross-post from forum thread OneWeb constellation (+900 sats) to be built by Airbus; plus other content.


Re: launch date window, from the SN article, by Caleb Henry, dated August 27: OneWeb, Arianespace target December-February for first Soyuz launch
Quote
Arianespace CEO Stéphane Israël told SpaceNews that OneWeb’s targeted launch period is from Dec. 18 to Feb. 19 [bold mine].


Edited cross-post, referring to the same SN article:
Quote
The first launch of OneWeb’s low-Earth-orbit broadband constellation could still happen by year’s end, but may slip into early 2019, according to officials from OneWeb and launch provider Arianespace.

Reason [from OneWeb founder Greg Wyler]:
Quote
“Arianespace had an urgent customer need, and being good partners we can move around a bit, but we are hoping to get up as early in our launch window as possible.”

The article also says Stéphane Israël pretty much refuted what Wyler said  :)
Quote
Israël said there are no other customers on the Arianespace manifest pushing on OneWeb’s schedule.

AND:
SFN launch schedule, updated August 28, lists this launch as OneWeb 1, NET December 2018, and VS21.
