The public is advised that the Airlink flight to St Helena and Ascension scheduled to have taken place over the weekend has for operational reasons been postponed until next week.  Due to a combination of poor weather conditions that are forecast to prevail for much of the rest of the week, and flight crew duty limitation in the circumstances of the weather uncertainty, the difficult decision has had to be taken to postpone the flight.

The Johannesburg – St Helena – Johannesburg flight will operate as normal on Saturday, 21 July 2018.  There are still some seats available on the inbound flight and there will be opportunity for some passengers originally booked to travel to St Helena on 14 July to travel on 21 July, if they so wish.  There are still seats available on the outbound flight providing opportunity for passengers originally booked to travel to Johannesburg on 15 July to transfer to this flight, if they so wish.  Ticket transfers will be carried out in a priority order based on the original booking.

Airlink will provide a replacement flight to St Helena and Ascension which operate to St Helena and then on to Ascension Island on Monday, 23 July 2018, returning to St Helena and then Johannesburg on Tuesday, 24 July.

Affected persons on St Helena should contact Solomon’s Travel Agency at the Shipping & Travel Agents Office in the Malabar, Jamestown, in person or on tel: 22523.
