Temporary Closure of St Helena Airport
Please be advised that St Helena Airport is temporarily closed in accordance with standard regulatory procedure as the Aerodrome Certificate previously held by Basil Read Ltd has been rescinded by ASSI (Air Safety Support International) since Basil Read Ltd are no longer contracted to operate the Airport.
St Helena Government (SHG) is in the process of activating contingency arrangements.
SHG is using all best endeavours to resume normal operations. Regulatory arrangements are already in place so that should a medevac flight be required during the course of this week, the flight could operate as normal.
