Arianespace delivers for Latin America! Ariane 5 orbits Intelsat 30 and ARSAT-1

Arianespace continued Ariane 5s track record of success with another heavy-lift mission performed today from the Spaceport in French Guiana, which orbited a pair of telecommunications satellites for Latin America: Intelsat 30, which is hosting the DLA-1 payload; and ARSAT-1.

Both spacecraft were deployed into geostationary transfer orbits following their ascent from the Spaceports ELA-3 launch zone, with Intelsat 30 released nearly 28 minutes after liftoff, and ARSAT-1 separating approximately six minutes later to complete the flight sequence.
