The St Helena government has announced that the island’s air service provision with Airlink will resume next year.
It is expected to commence towards the end of March 2022 and will include a fortnightly service between Johannesburg and St Helena as well as the monthly inter-island service with Ascension Island.
The actual service commencement date and date for when ticket sales will ‘go live’ should be announced in early December 2021, according to a statement by Airlink.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Airlink service has been suspended since March 2020. Stakeholders will now be working with airline over the coming months in readiness for the resumption of flights between St Helena and South Africa.
In order to maintain access to the Island, Titan Airways charter flights between the UK, St Helena and Ascension will continue between November 2021 and March 2022. Scheduled dates for Titan flights to depart the UK are:
- 29 November 2021
- 11 December 2021
- 4 January 2022
- 24 January 2022
- 14 February 2022
- 7 March 2022.
Due to lack of demand, the Titan flight on 28 March 2022 has been cancelled. Passengers booked on this flight will be contacted and may move their bookings to an earlier Titan flight or transition to an Airlink flight.
