Arianespace said launch of Ariane Flight VA221 has been postponed again by unfavourable high-altitude winds over French Guiana.

The launch was originally planned for Thursday, December 4, 2014, but was delayed because of the weather conditions at the launch site in Kourou.

Flight VA221 will place into geostationary transfer orbit the DirecTV-14 (pictured) and GSAT-16 telecommunications satellites.

Another launch date will be decided depending on the evolution of the weather conditions in Kourou, Arianespace said in a statement.
