SANTA HELENA (HLE/FHSH): o mais novo aeroporto do mundo!

Mensagempor AeroEntusiasta » Sáb Abr 16, 2005 09:21

Uma das ilhas habitadas mais remotas do mundo, SANTA HELENA (pert. UK) receberá um aeroporto.

Esta ilha é o local onde Napoleão Bonaparte foi exiliado em 1815 e passou seu últimos anos de vida até 1821, quando morreu.

Atualmente ela é servida por dois navios da Marinha Real Inglesa. Veja o press release:

PRESS RELEASE


An Airport for St Helena

The South Atlantic island of St Helena, which is one of the most isolated inhabited islands in the world, is set to get its own international airport.

One of 13 remaining UK Overseas Territories, St Helena is at present accessible only by several days’ sea voyage from ports on the African mainland or from Ascension Island. The airport, which should be ready to accept flights by 2010, is expected to provide a boost for the island’s economy. The Department for International Development (DFID) will provide funding, subject to satisfactory bids for a `design, build and operate` contract and a rigorous environmental impact assessment. All private sector investor interest in St Helena will be considered on an equal footing.

The decision by DFID, in consultation with the St Helena Government, follows evaluation of options to maintain access after the island’s passenger and supply ship reaches the end of her working life in 2010. This last remaining ‘Royal Mail Ship’, the ‘RMS St Helena’, is now the island’s lifeline to the world.

Speaking today, International Development Minister Gareth Thomas said:
“I am delighted to make this announcement, which I know will be welcomed by the island community and St Helenians everywhere. I have every confidence that the islanders will take full advantage of the enormous social and economic benefits that we expect it to bring to them and to their island”.

The island’s Governor, His Excellency Mr Michael Clancy, said:

“I have no doubt that this will prove to be a momentous decision in the history of St Helena. We are sure we can develop the proposal into a huge success that will lead to economic growth and considerable advantages for the island. The island government and community are most grateful for this expression of confidence by Her Majesty’s Government in the future of St Helena”


Note to Editors:

1. The new airport will be located on Prosperous Bay Plain - on the eastern coast of the island. It will incorporate a total runway length of 2250 metres, sufficient to support safe operation of long-haul jet aircraft such as the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737-800. Pending an international tendering process, the initial cost estimates for the work will not be released for commercial reasons.

2. The project will include technical advice to help establish regular scheduled air services and to support St Helena in reaping the economic benefits of air access for the island. Increased tourism and inward investment is expected to follow the much improved access arrangements.

3. UK assistance to St Helena (pop 3900) is currently about £13 million per year. This includes budgetary support to meet essential public services and to subsidise the island’s dedicated shipping service.

AIRPORT OPENING CEREMONY POSTPONED

St Helena Government today confirms that further safety and operational work is required prior to the Official Opening of the Island’s new Airport – and that this event has therefore been postponed. While this means that the Airport will not officially open on 21 May 2016 as originally planned, the safety of aircraft and passengers is of course paramount.

Last week the Island’s Air Service Provider, Comair, brought a Boeing 737-800 aircraft to St Helena on an ‘Implementation Flight’. The crew was able to gather real time information on the conditions at St Helena’s new Airport to assist in preparations for the commencement of scheduled air services. The objectives of the Implementation Flight included route assessment, airside operations, passenger and cargo handling, training and various aspects of safety at St Helena Airport.

One outcome of the Implementation Flight has been the gathering of additional data on turbulence and windshear on the approach to Runway 20 (from the North). As a result of the data gathered and the conditions experienced, it has been decided that there is some additional work to be done in order to ensure the safe operation of scheduled passenger flights to and from St Helena Airport.

Windshear refers to a change in wind speed or direction, including a rapid change over a short distance. Difficult wind conditions, including turbulence and windshear, are encountered and safely managed at many airports around the world.

All parties are now working hard to get a better understanding of how windshear conditions can be mitigated at St Helena Airport – assessing what measures need to be taken to ensure the safety of incoming aircraft landing on Runway 20. Everyone involved remains committed to commencing commercial flights to and from St Helena at the earliest possible opportunity.

SHG – working with all parties – has taken the decision to postpone the planned Official Opening Ceremony until a solution is found to manage this important safety issue.
The Official Opening of St Helena Airport will now take place at a later date which has yet to be determined.

The public will be kept informed as this work progresses.

British Airways 737-800 First Landing On St Helena

THE FLIGHT FROM THE TOP OF THE BARN | Sharon Henry

The last time we clambered onto ‘The Barn’ the airport runway was only partially laid, this time we’ve scrambled up to watch an actual aeroplane land on that completed piece of gleaming concrete. And not just any aeroplane, a spanking new Boeing 737-800, operated by Comair, emblazoned with British Airways livery in the red, white and blue of the Union Jack. It’s the first passenger plane to touchdown on the new landing strip, the BIG one after the three smaller calibration flights before it.

ATLANTIC STAR AVRO RJ100 FLIGHT TO ST HELENA DEPARTS ON SCHEDULE

October 20, 2016
|
Atlantic Star Airlines
The team from Atlantic Star Airlines and Tronos Aviation Leasing took off from Zurich airport earlier today on the first leg of their ferry flight to South America via St Helena. The Avro RJ100 regional jet will travel via fuel stops in Marrakesh, Banjul and Ascension Island, before arriving in St Helena on Friday afternoon. The total distance will be 4500 miles over 4 European and 6 African territories.

Captain Richard Brown, commenting on the successful departure stated: "Maintaining the schedule on ferry flights such as this is always a challenge but we have made an excellent start and, weather permitting, we look forward to touching down in St Helena on Friday and demonstrating the excellent capabilities that make the Avro RJ100 a potential choice for air operations at St Helena."

Subject to weather conditions, the Avro RJ100 will land on Runway 02 at St Helena Airport to demonstrate in real world conditions the excellent short runway landing capability for which this jet is renowned. Runway 02 allows pilots to avoid the wind-shear that is sometimes encountered at St Helena Airport and instead, land with the prevailing tailwind. The high-wing, 4-engined, Avro RJ100 is ideally suited to this type of operation as it has a high performance braking and undercarriage system and, uniquely, it also has a tail mounted air brake to assist with stability when airborne and with deceleration once on the ground.

The purpose of the visit is to illustrate the reliability and versatility of the Avro RJ100 in the demanding flying environment of St Helena. Atlantic Star proposes to offer services using the aircraft, initially to neighbouring Ascension Island, 700 nautical miles way to the north-west, and to offer 24/7 medical evacuation capability to the 4500 strong Island community. Wind-shear data continues to be collected to establish a framework for safe operations, and once flights are established and a long range RJ100 variant is supplied by manufacturer BAE Systems, flights to Cape Town, Windhoek, Johannesburg and Accra will become possible.

The Atlantic Star team will post further updates on progress via Facebook, Twitter and our website blog after safely touching down on St Helena.

Atlantic Star Airlines remains committed to St Helena despite wind shear warnings.

Home News Atlantic Star Airlines remains committed to St Helena despite wind shear warnings.

Last week’s rumours around town and on social media about Atlantic Star Airlines flying an aircraft to St Helena have come to fruition and the flight is now scheduled to arrive next week.

>>>> https://youtu.be/yCPVxlakfrI

The Aircraft used by Atlantic Star is an Avro RJ100. The Journey will begin at Zurich in Switzerland then on to West Africa calling at Ascension Island for refuelling before the journey continues to St Helena.

This Aircraft which is owned by TronosJet, an Aircraft maintenance organisation based in Canada.

Tronosjet is well known in the aviation business and owns over 20 AVRO RJ/BAE 146 family aircraft and specializes in the aircraft maintenance and aircraft leasing.

The Avro RJ will be flown by specialist experienced pilots. Two Directors from Atlantic Star Airlines, along with other aviation specialists will also be on board.

Atlantic Star Airlines who have been committed to offering an Air Service to St Helena were schedule to make their first long haul journey from London to St Helena in May 2016 chartering a Boeing aircraft but was unable to deliver due to the airport not being commissioned for commercial operations.

Atlantic Star Airlines has always been committed to help find a solution to air access for St Helena.

The visit to the Island on this occasion is a non-commercial technical visit for Atlantic Star and TronosJet.

The crew will stay overnight on St Helena, accommodation and catering has been arranged to accommodate the visit before departing for South America.

The four engine turbo fan AVRO RJ100 ticks many boxes as a potential aircraft that could offer a service to the Island from Ascension and Cape Town to suit the constraints of the Islands airport.

The Aircraft type is owned by many civil organisations and private owners all over the world including RAF Queens Flight, AirFrance CityJet and Brussels Airlines and is renowned for its landing and take-off performance in identical runway lengths and conditions similar to St Helena.

Details of the exact accurate arrival times are not available yet however, it is hope that this along with other information will be released soon as the itinerary planning is completed. Captain Richard Brown from Atlantic Star is keen to meet with as many people on St Helena during his short stay, He is hoping to arrange a question and answer session in The Consulate Hotel on the evening of his arrival.

Is Atlantic Star The Solution To St Helena Airport Wind Shear?

Posted on 22 October 2016.

Imagem

AIR TRAVEL IS AT ST HELENA’S DOOR | Darrin Henry

Islanders on St Helena starved of information for more than six months concerning the fate of air access, saw despair brushed aside by the heroic, entrepreneurial spirit of Atlantic Star’s commercial airline ambition, when they coolly landed an AVRO RJ100 jet plane at the island’s much maligned airport.

Flying A Big Jet Into St Helena

The four-engine, British made aircraft designed for short take-off and landing operations completed the 700 mile, two hour flight from Ascension Island, landing first time on runway 02, the southern approach with a tail wind of approx 6 knots. The flight is actually being operated by Tronos Aviation Leasing. From the perspective of an untrained eye the landing looked as smooth as you could wish for, confirmed later by Atlantic Star Director, Richard Brown.

“It was pretty straight forward actually. We got visual of the island about 10-15 miles out. …then we had the opportunity to remain over the sea and we could just fly straight round onto the final for runway 02 and it was fine. Nothing much really to say about it.”

Imagem
Touchdown was at 15:51, Friday 21 October 2016, Atlantic Star’s first flight into St Helena Airport on an Avro RJ100 jet, operated by Tronos Aviation Leasing. This flight made its own little piece of history being the first direct air connection between Ascension Island and St Helena.

Fifteen minutes later, having disembarked most of the 13 non-commercial passengers, the aircraft taxied back out onto the runway, took off, circled round and this time landed from the opposite end, on runway 20, the northern approach which has been plagued by wind shear. In cross winds of approx 18 knots this was also completed without a problem.
“…we were completely on the published profile for the runway and it was fine.”

One witness became quite emotional as we looked on. I completely understood. The gloom that had descended around us over the last six months was suddenly lifted; the dream was on again it seemed.

Touchdown was at 15:51, Friday 21 October 2016, Atlantic Star’s first flight into St Helena Airport on an Avro RJ100 jet, operated by Tronos Aviation Leasing. This flight made its own little piece of history being the first direct air connection between Ascension Island and St Helena.

The Wind Shear Factor

A little over a year ago, islanders had finally dared to believe that air travel was possible when the first ever airplane landed at the brand new St Helena airport; a small, twin prop, Beechcraft King Air 200.

>>> YOUTUBE VIDEO: https://youtu.be/VsIEmiSskMI

Six months later, barely a month before the official grand opening, a commercial aircraft test flight by a Comair operated British Airways 737-800, dramatically wobbled and bobbled on final approach before aborting the landing just a few feet from the runway. A second attempt was successful; however, the phenomenon of wind shear had raised its ugly head in front of an audience that reached around the world via YouTube.

Everything was put on hold as problem solving began. But islanders who had been urged for years to start businesses and prepare for the age of air travel and an influx of tourists have been left in the dark as to the progress of this problem solving. Wind data was being collected and analysed – that’s been it, just about.


Imagem
On the St Helena Airport viewing deck as the Avro RJ100, takes off to demonstrate its rapid climb capability and how it can land on runway 20. This visit was Atlantic Star’s first flight to the island.

Any suggestion the airport is not open is quickly quashed by the St Helena Government who insist it is indeed, open. However, when Saints and friends of St Helena voted, campaigned and even marched in London for air access, none of us envisioned an “open” airport to be one that none of us could afford to use.

So poor has been the flow of information that during a formal sitting of Legislative Council in July, Councillor, Lawson Henry, delivered a stinging criticism of the government’s failure to communicate honestly with elected members and thus the public. “The morale on the island could not be any worse,” said Mr Henry, in reference to the effects of poor information sharing.

Such has been the ongoing ramifications of wind shear.

But today, 21 October, 2016, hope is alive again following the successful arrival of Atlantic Star and the Avro RJ100 jet.

Of course there have been plenty of rumours.

Imagem

Who Is Atlantic Star

In 2005 when Captain, Richard Brown, a British Airways pilot, heard about St Helena’s airport ambitions he was intrigued and spread a map on his kitchen table to learn more. The Atlantic Star adventure had begun.

Recruiting like-minded aviation and travel enthusiasts, a team was formed and the idea developed further.

In 2013, Director, Andrew Radford visited St Helena spreading a positive message about the company’s ambitions.

Atlantic Star went on to submit a bid to operate the scheduled air service from the island to Johannesburg but were unsuccessful, losing out to South African airline and British Airways’ franchisee, Comair.

Disappointed but still determined, Atlantic Star pushed on, partnering with TUIfly Airlines to ‘borrow’ a Boeing 737-800 and announcing a set of charter flights to St Helena, direct from UK, with a technical stop (refuelling) along the way. This direct option appealed to many Saints and a lot of bookings were made.

When the Comair, 737-800 test flight in April 2016 encountered severe wind shear, everyone’s plans were dashed, including Atlantic Star’s.
But they didn’t give up. Through contacts and business links, Atlantic Star seized on an opportunity to piggy-back on an Avro RJ100’s delivery flight from Europe to Chile and divert from the route for two days to come to St Helena.

Against all the odds this relentless team have boldly seized the initiative; they’re replaced six months of despondency with hope by parking a large white and red Avro RJ100 outside the airport terminal – twice!

The AVRO RJ100 Landing On St Helena

Two very experienced captains from Atlantic Airways (yes, a similar name) based in the Faroe Islands were at the controls today: Captain, Hjalgrim Magnussen and in the role of first officer for this flight, Hans Christian Petersen. Both are natives of the Faroe Islands giving them a real empathy for St Helena’s isolation.

Captain Magnussen told me although they did notice wind shear today it wasn’t much, it would need to be “more windy conditions” to compare to what they experience back home.
“If you have an airline that is set up for ‘normal’ conditions then they will have criteria that they will have to adhere to which will make the operation into a special place like St Helena a problem for them,” said Captain Magnussen.

He went on to explain that, like the Faroe Islands, St Helena’s airport requires specialist pilots used to flying in windy conditions. “They will be more adaptable, and it would be easier for them to get an operation up and running into a place like St Helena.”

I asked: Would you be confident that, with that type of plane it is possible to provide a good air service.

“Yes, absolutely.”

I also asked Richard Brown about the stopping distance of the Avro RJ100, as it travelled the length of the runway before turning around, albeit at a continually slowing pace.
“I think the rule breaking distance we calculated was 780 metres, against 1550.”

He compared their stop to how we stop a car at a junction, gradually rather than hammering the brakes.

“We feathered the brakes. We could have stopped much quicker than we did, but why would you heat the brakes up that way? So the raw distance was 780 metres, it would be more than that with 50 passengers on board. But bear in mind the aircraft weighs about 20 tons empty.”

Richard ran through a few rough calculations demonstrating the tolerances were very good.

“That’s why this aircraft is great for this. It’s small, it’s rugged, it’s got great braking. It’s got everything you need for this mission.”

What Happens Next?

This particular Avro aircraft is actually being delivered to a buyer in Chile, South America. The owner, Adrian Noskwith, was enthused by the idea of the St Helena project and has supported this little excursion.

At a public meeting at the Consulate Hotel tonight, the visiting team were greeted with applause from a large crowd who came to hear them speak and answer questions.

Although the flight was able to come via Wideawake Airfield on Ascension Island, permission was a one-off affair; despite being a British island, the runway is an American military facility and not open to scheduled commercial operations.

Atlantic Star reported an enthusiastic welcome and superb assistance from everyone on Ascension, including from the Americans. However, if our neighbouring island is to become a hub as part of St Helena’s air access solution, a more permanent agreement needs to be reached soon.

In terms of a service schedule, Atlantic Star’s initial proposal is to establish a twice weekly shuttle flight to Ascension Island, carrying approximately 50 of the Avro’s 100 passenger capacity. This reduced number allows good safe margins landing at St Helena in tail winds up to 15 knots. The idea is for connections to be made with the RAF passenger flights to the UK.

This is just a starting point; there would be plenty of scope to then develop the service with more frequent flights and also acquiring a second, modified aircraft for longer range links to both Cape Town and Johannesburg. Increased flights mean more efficient use of the aircraft.

The aircraft would be based on St Helena and therefore available as a 24/7 medevac option if required.

If the go-ahead was given today, Atlantic Star says they could be operational by the (northern hemisphere) spring.

I asked about fares, but the team were reluctant to give a figure at this moment, except to say prices will match market expectations. A multitude of factors make it impossible to nail down a figure this far out.

There is a clear buzz of excitement with people for the first time since that ‘wind shear day’ in April. The demonstration of commitment from Atlantic Star to provide an air service to St Helena has been extremely impressive.


Imagem


Who Is Paying For The Atlantic Star Flight?

Last week, via email, Atlantic Star had agreed to my request to photograph the interior of the aircraft for our blog. I was excited. But with a couple of days to go, SHG stepped in to put a stop to this on the grounds of security. They had decided, however, they would go on board to take pictures themselves for distribution to the press.

This exertion of control led me to assume SHG had financed the flight. Reporter’s due diligence and all, I asked Richard Brown how much SHG had contributed to the visit.
“Nothing, not a penny,” was the surprising reply. “Not a single penny. We’ve paid full price for the fuel. We haven’t had to pay immigration fees because we’re all crew. But no, it’s completely unsupported… most of it is Adrian. This is us doing it off our own back.”

When Does Air Travel Start For St Helena?

So, the St Helena Airport has reached another juncture in its short but eventful life. There is renewed hope. Seeing really is believing and today the whole island saw possibilities again.

St Helena has been treated to the visit of proactive, aviation enthusiasts, infectious with their belief. These guys have laid their cards on the table – put their money where their mouth is.

It would be really helpful to know if there are any other comparable solutions being considered.

Richard Brown and his Atlantic Star dream have been knocking on St Helena’s door for 11 years now. Is anyone else knocking? Is anyone going to open the door?

I hope it’s not too long before we learn the answers.

Embraer 190 Vai Ser Testado Na Ilha De Santa Helena


Um avião Embraer 190 vai pousar no novo aeroporto da ilha de Santa Helena, uma possessão britânica no Atlântico Sul, nesta terça-feira, dia 29 de novembro, confirmaram fontes governamentais regionais.

A aeronave procede do Aeroporto Internacional do Recife, no Estado de Pernambuco, Brasil, e transporta a bordo apenas três tripulantes. O Embraer 190 ficará na ilha até à quinta-feira, dia 1 de dezembro.

Há poucos dados acerca desta visita, mas uma nota do Governo de Santa Helena, distribuída na semana passada, convidou a população a observar a evolução da aeronave, que durante dois dias estará na ilha para fazer diversos voos de testes, o que, naturalmente, será um acontecimento na pacata ilha que tem cerca de cinco mil habitantes.

As obras do aeroporto de Santa Helena terminaram no início do ano e custaram mais de 250 milhões de libras esterlinas (cerca de 360 milhões de dólares) à Coroa Britânica. Foi feito um voo inaugural com um Boeing 737-800 da companhia sul-africana Comair, ao serviço da British Airways, mas os resultados não foram os melhores, já que o aeroporto, construído no alto de um rochedo, é afetado por frequentes ventos cruzados que dificultam a operação e colocam algumas dificuldades à operação.

O fenómeno começou a ser estudado com maior profundidade. Da parte de alguns responsáveis técnicos e pilotos, o B737-800 não será o melhor avião para ser utilizado nas próximas carreiras regulares para a ilha, e as companhias interessadas em escalar a ilha – a British Airways e a recém constituída companhia regional Atlantic Star Airlines – deverão optar por aeronaves de menor lotação que serão tripuladas por pilotos que serão submetidos a treino específico para poderem contornar as situações que, eventualmente, encontrarão sobre a pista de Santa Helena.

No passado dia 21 de outubro a Atlantic Star Airlines, em cooperação com uma empresa de leasing de aviões promoveu o pouso na ilha de um avião Avro RJ100, um jato regional de quatro motores a jato. O avião ia da Europa para o Chile e fez uma escala da ilha, levando a bordo 13 pessoas. Era pilotado pelo comandante Hjalgrim Magnussen e pelo piloto Christian Petersen, ambos da Ilhas Faroé, na Dinamarca, com grande experiência em aeroportos de ilhas e com iguais problemas de vento, tal como os que se registam em Santa Helena. Os testes foram animadores e deram alguma razão a quem defende um tipo de avião mais pequeno e com boa força de motores.

O Governo de Santa Helena no comunicado distribuído na semana passada adianta que os jatos regionais Embraer 190 são apontados como uma das possíveis soluções para o tráfego regular de passageiros no aeroporto da ilha.

EMBRAER TRIAL FLIGHT CONFIRMED – LARGE PASSENGER AIRCRAFT TO LAND ON TUESDAY

An Embraer ERJ-190-100 jet aircraft (picture inset) – operated by Embraer Commercial Aviation, carrying three crew and flying from Recife, Brazil – is scheduled to arrive at St Helena Airport on Tuesday 29 November 2016, at approximately 3.55pm local time. As normal, this arrival time is subject to possible change due to weather and other factors.
The purpose of the flight is a non-commercial trial flight.

The Embraer aircraft will depart on Thursday 1 December at around 9am – bound for Recife – having completed some landings, take-offs and circuits at St Helena Airport.
The Embraer flight will provide the Airport with additional real time data and a pilot’s report – all part of building a more comprehensive picture of the conditions at St Helena Airport under which we will be asking a scheduled air service to operate.

This Embraer aircraft is one of a number of potential solutions to operating regular flights to St Helena.

Final confirmation of the flight and timings will be provided on Monday – listen out on local radio.

Note to Public

The public is reminded that, because of the siting of sensitive Light Detection & Ranging equipment (LIDAR), Mole Spider Hill is currently out of bounds until further notice.

Also, due to the small crew on board this flight, the Terminal Building will not be open on this occasion.

However, normal arrangements for public viewing will apply, with Horse Point, Millennium Forest, Bradley’s and Woody Ridge areas all accessible.

Please drive and park responsibly.

COMMERCIAL AIR SERVICE ‘TAKES OFF’ AT ST HELENA AIRPORT
Posted on October 14, 2017 by St Helena Government
Today began an exciting new chapter in St Helena’s history when the first ever commercial flight from South Africa touched down at St Helena Airport at 1.59pm.

Using their Embraer E190-100IGW aircraft, Airlink brought in this inaugural flight from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, following a six hour journey incorporating a fuelling stop in Windhoek, Namibia. Airlink will now operate a weekly service between St Helena and Johannesburg and St Helena and Cape Town (via the stopover at Windhoek International Airport).

72 passengers comprising returning Saints and invited guests – Tour Operators from Eastcape Tours, Get Africa Travel, Springbok Atlas and Island Holidays, International media – BBC, ITV, The Times, Thomson Reuters, Associated Press and other publications – were greeted by HE Governor Lisa Phillips on arrival and then by a full St Helenian welcome in the packed Arrivals Hall.

Speaking about today’s flight, HE Governor Lisa Phillips, said:

“For St Helena, today is the start of a bright new future. We are determined to make sure that air services work to benefit all St Helenians and bring about a higher standard of living for those on the Island. We are open for business and investment and we know tourists will marvel at the beauty of the Island. We are happy to welcome our visitors to the ‘secret of the South Atlantic’.”

Sales and Marketing Manager in Airlink, Karin Murray, added:

“This is a momentous historic occasion for St Helena, its citizens and its stakeholders. On behalf of all of us at Airlink, the staff, the Board of Directors and the Shareholders of Airlink, I hereby express our absolute joy and pride at having accomplished this inaugural flight and for having established this scheduled public air transportation air bridge for St Helena. This is indeed a privilege for Airlink and we congratulate St Helena on achieving this auspicious milestone which has been many years in the making.”

To mark today’s momentous occasion, guests will undertake a full itinerary of visits to key tourist attractions on St Helena. A reception at Plantation House is also being hosted by Governor Lisa Phillips for all passengers onboard today’s flight and for key people involved in the arrangements leading up to today.

The flight will depart St Helena tomorrow, Sunday 15 October 2017, at 2.30pm.

The commencement of a commercial air service is St Helena’s link to the rest of the world and will transform the Island’s tourism industry. The growth of the tourism industry will have a positive knock-on effect for other sectors including, agriculture, fisheries and construction.

The weekly air service on a Saturday will make it cheaper, quicker and easier to travel to and from St Helena, and will help ensure the Island’s long term prosperity.

Airlink will also operate a monthly charter service between St Helena and Ascension Island. This service will commence with the first flight from St Helena on Saturday, 18 November 2017, and returning on Sunday, 19 November. Thereafter the flight will take place on the second weekend of every month.
