Satellite flies with Volga-Dnepr

January 22 - Volga-Dnepr Airlines has delivered the T

The 60-tonne spacecraft was placed into a special container for its flight on board one of the airline's AN-124-100 freighters.

During the flight and technical stops a constant temperature of 10°C was maintained to protect the satellite's sensitive technology. The high value space equipment also required precise and delicate handling during the loading and unloading process.

Experts from Japan arrived in Kazakhstan onboard the freighter to participate in the launch of the Türksat 4A satellite from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, which is scheduled to take place in February.

The Türksat 4A telecommunications satellite was produced by the Mitsubishi Electric Corporation in Japan on behalf of Turkey's communications satellite operator Türksat AS and will provide Turkey, Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa with TV broadcasting and broadband communications.
