Due to the incorrect use of the lift in the Terminal Building at St Helena Airport, the lift is currently unserviceable and therefore closed to the public. Accordingly, access to the landside café and viewing deck on the 1st floor of the Terminal Building is currently only possible via the stairwell.
Replacement parts have been ordered and an engineer will come to the Island to effect a repair, but due to lead times for replacement items, this will not be possible until approximately mid-August 2019. As such, the lift will remain inoperable until it can be repaired and re-certified to ensure ongoing safe operation.
St Helena Airport Limited would like to apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause to the public.
A further announcement will be made once the lift becomes operational
