Additional flights that operate on a Tuesday do so at the same times as the usual Saturday flight, leaving Cape Town at 9 a.m. local time and arriving at St Helena at approximately 13:15 local time after a fuel stop in Namibia, then leaving St Helena at 14:30 local time for the return to Cape Town, arriving at around 20:45 local time.

Four years later, to the day, St Helena Airport showed its ability to handle a myriad of different aircraft with professionalism and to international standards, with two private aircraft and the commercial air service handled within the space of a few hours.  This involved long hours from staff given the single shift basis on which the airport operates and given the challenges of delivering safe and efficient access to one of the world's most remote locations. St Helena Airport Limited (SHAL) and St Helena Government are proud of the progress achieved thus far and look forward to further developing access and services at St Helena Airport, to be benefit of residents and visitors alike.

Accordingly, access to the landside café and viewing deck on the 1st floor of the Terminal Building is once again possible via the lift or the stairwell. The lift became inoperable in July and therefore it was taken out of service until a repair could be made.  St Helena Airport Limited would like to apologise for any delay and consequential inconvenience that this will have caused to the public. Now that the lift is again working, additional measures will be put in place to avoid a repeat of the issue that led to its unserviceability.
