Members of the public will be awaiting the sale of tickets for the St Helena Air Service.

Airlink are currently loading fares and the accompanying taxes onto ticket distribution systems. This is work in progress and is taking slightly longer than expected.

The final pieces of information to upload relate to the taxes that apply at St Helena Airport. As each piece of information is uploaded, the system is being tested to ensure that everything is working smoothly. Work is well underway and it will not be long before ticket sales go live.

An announcement will be made to provide advance notice of the point at which tickets will go on sale.

In November 2011, St Helena Government signed a Design, Build and Operate (DBO) contract with Basil Read (Pty) Ltd. The contract included £201.5 million for the design and construction of the airport, an additional amount - of up to - £10 million on shared risk contingency and £35.1 million for ten years of operation.

The project aims to provide air services to St Helena, fulfilling the UK Government’s commitment to maintaining access to the Island, and provide it with a real opportunity for economic growth through tourism.

Both the St Helena Government and the UK Government hope that this will lead to eventual financial self-sustainability for St Helena.
