Those persons transiting through St Helena to Ascension Island (and vice versa) will be permitted to do so.  No other persons wishing to visit St Helena at this time will be permitted to enter the Island. These measures have been put in place to limit the likelihood of the COVID-19 virus arriving on this small, remote and vulnerable Island.

Measures to prevent the spread of diseases include limiting exposure by avoiding crowds and close proximity to one another.  As such, visitors to the airport are asked to be mindful of preventative measures that would assist the Island in limiting the inadvertent spread of disease. As such, those coming to the airport to collect someone arriving by air are asked to consider waiting outside the Terminal Building or perhaps in their vehicle rather than go into the airport building.  Likewise, those assisting travellers who are leaving St Helena by air are also asked to consider just dropping them off at the airport rather than entering the building. These measures will help reduce the spread of the flu which is currently being experienced on Island, and will help reduce the chances of COVID-19 spreading throughout the population if it should come to the Island. By making this a habit now, it will better prepare the Island and its residents for the arrival of COVID-19 should this occur.  As the saying goes, "prevention is better than cure".

This year's Commonwealth Day theme is "Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating and Transforming". This theme is particularly pertinent to the world of civil aviation:   This year's Commonwealth Day theme also centred on better, more sustainable use of our natural resources, and crucially, the protection of our planet's environment.  St Helena Airport Limited has always prioritised environmental management and stewardship, and will continue to do so in proactive and reactive ways in order that it can operate in harmony with the environment in which it is located. To this end, SHAL is seeking to join the ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation scheme which demands a positive public statement of intent with regards to carbon management and will evidence SHAL's proactive approach to reducing its carbon footprint and to enhance local and global environments.
