Security at St Helena Airport
The safety and security of aircraft, passengers, crew, staff and visitors at the Airport is paramount. Please click on the sub-menu links to the left to access information relating to general security requirements at the Airport and in particular, when proceeding through to Departures.
St Helena Airport is an international airport and as such needs to meet and maintain strict security requirements in order to operate safely, securely and effectively. As such, it is no different to any other international airport around the world, regardless of size or frequency of aircraft movements. The Aviation Ordinance gives powers to the Aerodrome Security Officers to stop, search, and if need be, detain persons in or around the Airport if the safety of the Airport is compromised.
The public is thanked for its cooperation and understanding in this respect.
