Persons who have been offered a seat on the flight have now been contacted by the Tourist Office. An information pack is on its way to each person.  Persons requiring further details should contact Christina Plato at the Tourist Office via email: or on tel. +290 22158.

Whilst it has been possible to accommodate the majority of travel requests on the repatriation flight, we are aware that names continue to be added to the travel request list.  If you are one of the persons who has been offered a seat on the flight, please confirm your booking with the Tourist Office at the earliest opportunity.  If you are contemplating declining to travel on the flight, your seat can then be made available to someone else.  Should seats become available, these will be offered to those who have pre-registered on the travel request list.  If you have pre-registered, you will be contacted directly should a seat become available. 

The public is reminded that St Helena Airport remains closed to visitors and non-travellers. Passengers arriving on the repatriation flight will be transported directly from the Airport to commence their 14 days of compulsory quarantine. Likewise only departing passengers will be permitted to enter the Airport.  Those transporting passengers to the Airport will be asked to drop them off and then leave the Airport premises.

SHG continues to investigate options for further charter flights.  If you have a requirement to travel over the coming months, please register your interest with Christina Plato at the Tourist Office (see details above).
