Back to Business – Europe’s Spaceport

Workers are returning to Europe’s Spaceport at Kourou in French Guiana to resume preparations for Vega and Ariane 5 launches. Construction of the new Ariane 6 launchpad has also restarted in preparation for the launcher’s maiden flight.

COVID-19 lockdown measures introduced in March meant that all but safety-critical operations were suspended at the spaceport and the vast site had to be secured. Strict new safety and hygiene procedures have now been introduced. Launch teams returning from mainland Europe will spend two weeks in quarantine.

Vega is due to return to flight this summer with a record 42 satellites on board.
