St Helena news

Travellers to and from St Helena could be offered a special charter flight from the UK over the 2018 Christmas holiday period.

Atlantic Star Airlines is looking at a flight leaving the UK on 16/17 December to arrive in St Helena the following day then returning to the UK to allow Saints living on the island to visit families in the UK over the Christmas period. A return flight would leave the UK on 5/6 January arriving in St Helena the following day before returning to the UK with passengers who have spent Christmas on the island.  Each flight will require an intermediate refuelling stop in West Africa.

The cost per person will be approximately £1,500 for UK originating passengers and £1,200 from the island.  Children’s fares will be two-thirds of the full adult fare.  Supplyng the aircraft is an established European operator.  Interested parties should click the link below.

It would be possible to shorten the visit from either end by using the Airlink service from Johannesburg and Capetown.  These flights are said to be doing well although there are no plans to up the frequency from weekly at present.

The RMS St Helena has made its last passenger visit to the South Atlantic island. A monthly cargo service remains.
