During the World Satellite Risk Forum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from March 1 to 3, 2010, Arianespace is reaffirming its role as the benchmark launch service provider for the Middle East.
30 years of success
Since its founding, Arianespace has signed more than 300 launch Service and Solutions contracts - including four new contracts already signed in 2010 - and has launched 277 satellites for 76 customers, accounting for more than half of all commercial satellites now in service.
A flawless record for the last seven years
Arianespace set a new record for Ariane 5 in 2009, with seven launches during a calendar year. These missions orbited nine commercial satellites, the Herschel space telescope, the Planck scientific observatory and the Helios 2B observation satellite.
Number 1 in the Middle East
A major Forum partner
According to Jean-Yves Le Gall, Arianespace Chairman and CEO, "Arianespace has always had a very open relationship with the insurance sector, and our presence at the World Satellite Risk Forum will enable us to sustain these ties, through communications based on mutual trust."
