As such, the airport will be open to everyone from 10 a.m. on the dates shown below*, with the 1st floor café and the viewing gallery open until the aircraft departs at around 2:30 p.m. 

Please note, however, that the airport buildings will remain closed to the public on every Saturday flight to permit the necessary COVID-19 protection measures to remain in place.  However, vehicles for the use of those arriving on the Saturday flights may be left at the Airport, at the owner’s risk.  Drop-off times are Friday 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. the day before the flight, or on the Saturday morning until 10 a.m.

SHAL continues to maintain its robust sanitising regime and other preventative measures, in order to maintain a safe airport for staff, passengers, and the general public.  Indeed, it should be noted that persons arriving at the Airport from abroad do not use the 1st floor café or the viewing gallery; therefore, the public can feel confident that these areas are entirely safe for their use and enjoyment.

We look forward to welcoming the St Helenian community back to the Airport on a regular basis.
