Weighing more than six metric tons at launch, SES-17 will be among the 10 largest telecom satellites launched by Arianespace since the company’s founding. SES-17 is the third all-electric satellite for which SES has chosen an Arianespace launch. The satellite built by Thales Alenia Space is fitted with an electric propulsion system for orbital positioning and station-keeping; its payload comprises 200 Ka-band spotbeams; the orbital position of the spacecraft has not yet been disclosed.
“SES and Arianespace have developed an exceptional partnership over the past 30 years”, said Martin Halliwell, Chief Technology Officer of SES. “With this launch, we build on that relationship and underline our commitment to the European space industry. Together with today’s agreement with Arianespace to launch another four spacecraft of our O3b constellation on Soyuz in 2019, we are satisfied to conclude two important contracts with Arianespace giving us the necessary and reliable access to space that we need to further develop and drive our business.”
Stéphane Israël, CEO of Arianespace, noted: “This latest contract reflects the excellent relations built between Arianespace and SES over the past three decades. Our order book speaks for itself, with now 10 satellites to be launched for SES by 2021. We are honored to have been selected by SES for the launch of the new-generation SES-17 - an impressively sized, all-electric satellite - which shows Arianespace’s ability to adapt to customers’ evolving requirements. SES’ continued trust in Arianespace is a clear demonstration that our Ariane 5 heavy-lift launcher is keeping pace with these changing technologies, prior to the advent of our new-generation Ariane 6 launch vehicle - for which discussions are underway to serve future SES missions.”

Oxera Releases New Analysis on Europe’s Aviation Market, Revealing Increased Competition between Airports26.9.2017 19:13 | Tiedote
Oxera Consulting LLP has revisited the subject of airport competition in Europe, conducting research and analysis on the implications of recent market trends on the dynamics between airports and airlines in Europe. Oxera found that the European aviation market grew by 25% between 2010 and 2016, with key trends including the continuing rapid expansion of LCCs (low-cost carriers) and non-traditional hubs in the Middle East and Istanbul. These developments have contributed to an intensification of the rivalry between airports, across all channels through which they compete. With many of these trends now being long established, the competitive pressures on airports, of all sizes, across Europe are highly likely to endure and continue to develop, implying that regulators and government stakeholders will need to address this ‘new normal’.
