India’s Communication satellite GSAT-18 was successfully launched from the European spacepad of Kourou in French Guiana on Thursday.

GSAT-18, built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), aims at providing telecommunication services by strengthening the space agency’s current fleet of 14 operational telecom satellites.

European launcher Ariane-5 VA-231 blasted off at 2 a.m. (IST) and placed GSAT-18 in the orbit in a flawless flight that lasted about 32 minutes.

“GSAT-18 successfully launched by Ariane-5 VA-231 from Kourou, French Guiana,” ISRO said.
