Valuables can include laptops, portable devices, currency, jewellery, watches and anything else of significant monetary or sentimental value. Whilst the likelihood of tampering or theft from luggage cannot be entirely eliminated, there are a number of precautions that can be taken to minimise the possibility of tampering or theft occurring. It is recommended that you place valuable items in your cabin baggage and keep it with you at all times; as a secondary security measure, consider using a lock for your cabin baggage and try not to use external pockets that cannot be secured. It is normally recommended that you do not use hold baggage to transport your valuables, but should the need arise, please consider additional security measures.  Having your luggage professionally wrapped will add an additional layer of security as well as protecting your luggage against damage.  Wrapping services are available at St Helena Airport, OR Tambo International Airport and most other international airports. Alternatively, consider using a luggage strap to minimise the loss of the contents of the luggage should the main zip fail; luggage straps with locks are also available. Taking these precautions can minimise the likelihood of the loss of the contents of your luggage, particularly in respect of valuables, and can also assist in keeping the contents secure during the rigours of air travel.

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.
