UAE-satellite operator, Yahsat, celebrates the fifth anniversary of the launch of its first satellite, Y1A, on 23 April, 2016. In 2011, the Ariane 5 rocket carrying the satellite launched from the European Space Centre in Kourou, French Guiana.

The following year Yahsat launched its second satellite, Y1B. Today, the company is on-track for the eagerly anticipated third member of its fleet, Al Yah 3, which will provide high-quality broadband coverage to an additional 19 countries including first time entry to South America through Brazil.
