Further to the announcement issued on Friday, 4 May 2018, St Helena Government (SHG) and Airlink are pleased to advise that the additional flights to St Helena and Ascension have today been loaded into booking systems and tickets are available for sale. The flights will operate on a Tuesday.
Passengers should note that flights are loaded into the system 342 days in advance so booking systems are updated on a rolling basis.
Tickets are available via the Airlink website at: https://flyairlink.com/ and through all normal IATA global distribution systems. Passengers are advised to contact their IATA travel agent.
For those passengers resident on St Helena, ticket bookings can be made via Solomon & Company (St Helena) Plc's Shipping & Travel Agency at the Malabar in Jamestown. Passengers can visit the Shipping & Travel Agency in person or contact them via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 22523.
Airlink will continue to monitor the bookings and amend the schedule as appropriate.
These additional flights mean that St Helena can now cater for the anticipated demand to travel to the Island whilst benefitting Saints, visiting friends and relatives who traditionally return to St Helena for Christmas. This is also a positive step for the tourism and business markets with an expectation that there will be an increase in visitor numbers during the summer period. Passengers now have the option of three, four, seven or ten night stays (or indeed longer) on St Helena.
