Arianespace's flight VA250 delayed again due to weather conditions

Monday 25 November 2019 | 19:22 CET | News
Arianespace said it postponed once again the launch of its Flight VA250 due to unfavorable weather conditions over the Guiana Space Center in Kourou. The Arianspace 5 rocket's launch date was delayed by 24 hours to 26 November. The launch was previously delayed once due to a power supply anomaly in the ground segment of the Ariane 5 launch complex. The launcher and its two satellite passengers – TIBA-1 and Inmarsat GX5 – are being maintained in fully safe conditions and in stand-by mode, the company said.
