Work to establish an airmail service via the Airlink weekly flight between St Helena and Johannesburg continues.
Negotiations concerning the carriage of mail on the flight are ongoing and prices have been formulated.
The St Helena Post Office is now in the process of locating a handling agent in Johannesburg to manage the transhipment of mail in both directions.
Until this work is concluded, the carriage of mail to and from St Helena will continue via the RMS St Helena.
The public will be kept updated.
