This means that tickets issued from today for travel on Airlink's flights after 10 June 2020 will reference the new flight number. Tickets already issued for travel after 10 June 2020 on flights with SA813x flight numbers will remain valid for travel subject to re-accommodation; Airlink will work with travel agents, tour operators and customers to expedite the re-accommodation. In the meantime, Airlink will continue to sell tickets for flights operated on the SA813x code up to 10 June 2020.  These are available through travel agents, tour operators, on both the www.flyairlink.com and www.flysaa.com as well as all other online booking platforms. Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster said “Marketing and selling flights under our own 4Z code is an exciting development for Airlink as we propagate our business and take advantage of new market opportunities.  At the same time, we will be able to strengthen our vital partnership with SAA."

St Helena Airport Limited is working with all stakeholders at the airport to monitor the situation, both locally and globally, and will implement additional proactive and reactive measures to protect staff and the public. These measures include assessing arriving passengers based on recent travel history through the use of a questionnaire, and the use of a temperature sensor to check for possible signs of fever. Passengers and the public can greatly assist with minimising the likelihood of the spread of the virus by taking precautions such as: St Helena Government has issued further advice on its response to the outbreak - it can be found here. Further information and advice can be found on the WHO website.

The Annual Environmental Report (AER) provides information on the progress the airport has made towards its environmental responsibilities throughout the period 1st July 2018 to 30th June 2019.  These responsibilities extend to the airfield and surrounding environment, as well as external locations such as the Fire Training Rig and navigational aids.  It requires airport operations to be implemented safely and securely, but also in a way that is environmentally sensitive and sustainable. The report shows that of the 30 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) identified to monitor progress and track compliance, 24 of them (80%) were achieved; one KPI was partially met and five KPIs were not met.  Although this resulted in a slight deterioration in performance compared with the previous year, potential achievement of 3 of the KPIs was affected by factors outside of the airport's control. This independent report demonstrates the continued commitment of St Helena Airport Limited (SHAL) to robust and comprehensive environmental monitoring and management to ensure the airport's responsibilities are maintained and managed effectively.  SHAL takes its environmental responsibilities seriously, and indeed seeks to extend them in 2019-20 by investigating ways to reduce its carbon footprint and positively contribute towards the local and global environment. Gwyneth Howell, CEO and Accountable Manager for SHAL said, "Caring for the environment is an important responsibility for St Helena Airport.  The airport itself is built in an environmentally sensitive part of an Island which itself is teeming with endemics, spectacular natural landscapes and numerous micro-climates.  Whilst there is still much to do, I am very proud of SHAL’s stewardship of the environment in which we live and work.  It continues to be beholden on us all to monitor, manage and care for the environment to the benefit of this and all future generations."

Usually visitors to this part of the Island are greeted with wonderful views across Prosperous Bay towards Turks Cap, Cox's Battery and the Barn, but due to the weather, the walkers were presented with blanket fog and rain.  Nevertheless the fog and rain did not dampen spirits and the visit to and through the airport was greatly appreciated. [caption id="attachment_7304" align="alignleft" width="1000"]A photo of walkers taken outside the vehicle control point at St Helena Airport The intrepid explorers having completed the walk to King and Queen Rocks[/caption]   Access to the postbox can be arranged through an approved tour guide in liaison with the airport.  A passport or other official ID is required in order that the participant can be escorted airside and to/from the start of the walk.
