International Day of the Air Traffic Controller reminds us about the hard work that these men and women undertake to make air travel safe.  It is an increasingly important and demanding role given the significant growth of air travel over recent decades. The air traffic control profession is one that requires highly specialized knowledge, skills and abilities. Air Traffic Controllers must work rapidly and efficiently to coordinate the succinct movement of aircraft whilst ensuring safe separation between air traffic. This role requires total concentration, the highest levels of professionalism, excellent spatial awareness along with psychological and medical fitness, to ensure that safety is always assured around aircraft in flight and on the ground. St Helena Airport currently has two Air Traffic Controllers, Bramwell and Dayle, who are vital to the air service link by ensuring our airspace is safe for all aircraft.  Not only do they provide core air traffic control functions, but they also conduct weather observations, lead the Runway Safety Programme, and if called upon would coordinate tasks in an emergency situation.  Put simply, without Bramwell and Dayle, St Helena would have no air services. At St Helena Airport we are proud to work with our air traffic control colleagues from ATNS, and we celebrate them, together with their colleagues around the world, for the work they do to make our air travel safe.

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.

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.
