Flight

Launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. ISS Expedition 59 / 60.

Hazza Al Mansouri from United Arab Emirates was scheduled to launch with Soyuz MS-12 and land a few days later with Soyuz MS-10. Due to the abort with contingency landing of Soyuz MS-10 his flight was cancelled. He and his backup Sultan Al Neyadi were planned to fly as Spaceflight Participant (UKP).

Following an only six hours solo flight Soyuz MS-12 docked to ISS on March 15, 2019. Aleksei Ovchinin, Nicklaus Hague and Christina Koch became the ISS Expedition 59 (together with ISS Expedition 58 crew members Oleg Kononenko, David Saint-Jacques and Anne McClain). With the arrival Expedition 57 became a six-person-crew.
