Arianespace

Arianespace is a French commercial space transportation company

Arianespace is known as the world's first commercial satellite launch company that represented ten European countries when it launched. The company was founded in 1980, and is a sub-organization of ArianeGroup, which is headquartered in Singapore, Central Region, Singapore.

The company serves international clients around the world, and has completed over two hundred launches and missions, delivering hundreds of satellites into space. The company utilizes the Spaceport in French Guiana, named the Guiana Space Center which is suitable for commercial launches with spacecrafts such as the Ariane 5, the Soyuz, and the Vega for heavy to light-weight capacities, respectively.

In 2020, Arianespace launched three spacecrafts into space after the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19. Aboard these launches included communications satellites and a satellite servicer. This launch marked the first launch in five months, the previous one being a mission with a Soyuz rocket to launch a mega-constellation startup from Russia's Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
