St Helena Government is pleased to announce additional flights to and from St Helena for summer 2019/2020. In addition to the scheduled service to St Helena that operates each Saturday, this additional flight will be scheduled on a Tuesday between December 2019 and May 2020.
These additional flights, much like those for 2018/19, have been programmed to take into account the peak period of travel, to meet anticipated demand and to offer a greater flexibility in the length of stay on St Helena – 3, 4, or 7 day stays (and multiples thereof).
Director of Tourism, Helena Bennett, said:
“It is fantastic news that we are able to announce to the travel trade that the mid-week flights will continue for the summer of 2019/2020. This will allow potential tourists, business people and friends and relatives overseas, the opportunity to plan their trip to our wonderful Island and home”.
Chairman of the Economic Development Committee, Councillor Lawson Henry, commented :
“This is good news for St Helena and those wishing to travel here during this time. This is the kind of planning that needs to go into building a tourist destination and I hope it will bring much needed confidence and stimulus into our economy, particularly the hospitality sector. I would like to thank our partners in the Department for International Development (DFID) for their support.”
Further information will be published when flights and flight dates have been finalised, and when tickets will become available for purchase.
