Checks requested by Alcatel Space on
Turksat 2A/Eurasiasat mean that the satellite must be returned to the S3
preparation building in Kourou to perform the necessary investigations.

A new launch date will be set early next week in agreement with the
customer, once the investigations have been completed.

The next Arianespace flight will use an Ariane 5 (AR 508) to orbit the
Astra 2D, Aurora III/GE-8 and LDREX satellites.

The launch will take place during the night of Tuesday, Dec. 19 to
Wednesday, Dec. 20, in the following launch window:

     9:26 to 10:09 pm, local time in Kourou
    00:26 to 01:09 GMT
