Towards the latter end of the second World War, international air travel was beginning to develop and following a meeting of 54 nations in 1944, the framework that would govern international air travel was born.  This framework is called the Chicago Convention.  Over the following decades this UN organisation would establish itself as the driving force for international aviation development and regulatory control, with the aim of making civil aviation safe, secure, efficient, environmentally sensitive and an enabler of global economic development. Currently there are 193 Member States signed up to the Chicago Convention, all of whom ensuring that they support the global aviation network.  Airports, airlines, ground handling companies and air traffic navigation providers all have an input into this global network, working collaboratively with ICAO to connect the world. St Helena Airport Limited wishes to congratulate ICAO on this anniversary of its formation, and in particular, to celebrate International Civil Aviation Day with everyone connected with civil aviation around the world.

Airlink, which is a privately owned airline, is an SAA code-share and franchise business partner.   However Airlink operates its own aircraft, crew and facilities and therefore is not affected by the difficulties in which SAA currently finds itself.  As such, flights to and from St Helena should continue as usual. “As a creditor and business partner, we have been concerned about SAA’s financial crisis. However, Airlink is a financially sound, commercially agile and robust business with the resilience to see out the storm. Airlink customers can be assured there will be no disruptions to our schedule as a result of the latest SAA developments and we will continue to do business as usual,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster.

As such, passengers flying from St Helena to Cape Town are advised that they will need to go landside via Immigration and Customs upon arrival at Cape Town.  The only exceptions are the KLM and Air France flights that depart CTIA early Wednesday morning. If passengers are intending to fly to Cape Town on Tuesday afternoon on SA8139 and to then connect with the Wednesday morning KLM flight (KL598) or the Wednesday morning Air France flight (AF871), they must advise Airlink or Solomon & Company prior to travel in order that special access can be arranged to permit this transfer. Similarly, if passengers travelling to St Helena from CTIA miss the Tuesday Airlink morning flight (SA8138), they will need to return to landside via Immigration and Customs. Passengers are therefore reminded that should they need to go landside at CTIA, they will require a visa if they do not enjoy visa-free entry to South Africa.  As such, passengers who require visa entry to South Africa are strongly recommended to apply for a visa prior to arrival in South Africa to permit temporary entry into the country should this become necessary.

Previously the no fly zone (red zone on the drone map) did not allow any flights by drones except for emergency purposes.  A directive issued by Air Safety Support International (ASSI), valid from 2 December 2019, now permits restricted use of drones within this area as long as two conditions are both met:
  1. Drone activity must be conducted for legitimate research purposes, and
  2. Drone activity must be authorised by St Helena Airport Limited prior to any activity occurring.
Accordingly, should drone users who meet the two conditions wish to conduct flights within the “no fly zone” on St Helena, they should contact St Helena Airport in the first instance. All drone users are asked to respect the requirements of the directive and should understand that misuse of this opportunity to fly in the “no fly zone” may result in its withdrawal to the detriment of possible future research.  Any unauthorised drone activity in the no fly zone will be dealt with accordingly. Please note that this amendment makes no changes to the existing requirements of the “safe” and “restricted” fly zones (green and yellow on the drone map).

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 approximately 14:30 local time for the return to Cape Town, arriving at around 20:45 local time.

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.
