Airport closed to visitors on flight days - 14 April 2020
In view of the measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on St Helena, the public is advised that no visitors will be permitted at St Helena Airport until further notice.
Only passengers who are due to leave on a flight will be permitted to enter St Helena Airport; those transporting passengers to the Airport will be asked to drop them off and then leave the Airport premises – the Terminal Building will not be open to them.
Passengers who will be arriving on flights will be processed through Immigration and Customs and then transported to a place designated by a Proper Officer to commence a minimum of 14 days of compulsory self-isolation. As such, other than when private transportation has been permitted for arriving passengers, there will be no opportunity for friends or family to meet and greet returning residents.
To assist with the management of persons arriving and departing the Airport, the barriers at the foot of Mole Spider Hill will be in place and manned. Only those persons with a legitimate reason to proceed into the Airport complex will be permitted to do so.
The public is thanked in advance for their support and cooperation.
