Yahsat engineers sign off on Al Yah 3 by leaving a personal message on the satellite before being loaded onto the Ariane 5 for its launch planned on 25 January (26 January UAE time) in Kourou (French Guiana). With the launch of Al Yah 3, Yahsat’s commercial Ka-band coverage will be extended to an additional 20 markets, reaching 60% of Africa’s population and over 95% of Brazil’s population.
