Ariane 6 space programme
Ariane 6 significantly reduces the cost of launching satellites into Earth orbit compared to its predecessor, Ariane 5. Launches will be performed from the Guiana Space Centre with 11 flights per year planned for 30 years. It will carry, for example, additional satellites for the European navigation system Galileo into orbit. The first group of satellites was transported by the previous model Ariane 5.
The main advantages over Ariane 5 are not the performance, but the operating economy. The rocket is designed so that its price is half that of its predecessor, while being capable of at least twice the number of launches per year.
