Due to an anomaly discovered during tests on a subassembly identical to the one on the Ariane 5 launcher, Arianespace has decided to carry out additional checks, which will take several days.

A new launch date will be announced shortly.

The two satellites are in perfect condition at the launch site in Kourou, French Guiana.
