The Falcon 9 rocket blasted off early Monday from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The satellite was earlier sheduled to be set in motion in to the orbit with the help of a previously flown Falcon 9 rocket from SpaceX pad situated in Florida on Friday at 12:29 a.m. EDT.
SES was the first company to accept a ride on a used SpaceX rocket, back in March 2017.
SpaceX won't attempt to recover the first stage after the launch.
Space X had said the spacecraft would embark on four missions per year to the International Space Station, three carrying cargo and one carrying crew, and then once Crew Dragon missions were underway for NASA, SpaceX would launch the private moon mission. The company provides satellite communications services to broadcasters, content and internet service providers, mobile and fixed network operators, governments and institutions. Upgrades to the Falcon 9 rocket have seen it getting more of a use and focus lately.
Halliwell said SES-12, built by Airbus Defense and Space, combines features that would have required two spacecraft just a few years ago, providing direct-to-home television and other communications services through six beams covering an enormous area with multiple beams providing broadband connectivity.

Martin Halliwell, chief technology officer for SES, said at a pre-launch press conference last week: 'The first stage is a Block 4, and the upper stage is a Block 5'. That engine is a monster.
The firm launched the Block 5 for the first time on May 11 following a botched attempt the day before in which a flight was aborted less than a minute before lift-off.
This is part of SpaceX's wider goal to make launching rockets similar to commercial flights, where they "can be flown again and again".
Space X is phasing out older models of Falcon 9s after two flights on Falcon of upgraded version so that it will be able to launch 10 or more times.
Standing some 27 feet tall and weighing almost 12,000 pounds, Halliwell joked that the spacecraft built in France by Airbus Defense and Space barely fit inside the Falcon 9 rocket's nose cone, or payload fairing.
