The August Titan Airways Charter flight from the UK is scheduled to arrive at St Helena on Monday, 9 August 2021.

Persons wanting to travel on this flight have up until Wednesday, 30 June, to express an interest to fly.

In conjunction with Ascension Island Government (AIG) and due to increased demand, an additional return shuttle service to Ascension Island will operate on Wednesday, 11 August. This means the return flight to London Stansted (via Accra) will now depart  24 hours later on Thursday, 12 August. See revised timetable below:

Restrictions in South Africa and Planning for the Future

Ongoing COVID-19 measures remain in place in South Africa – these include a curfew (which was recently tightened) and restrictions on travellers entering the UK from South Africa, which is currently on the UK’s travel ‘Red List’.  Both St Helena Government (SHG) and Airlink have agreed that these restrictions continue to make it impractical for the scheduled Airlink service to resume at present. SHG remains in close contact with the airline on these developments.

SHG continues to focus its efforts on planning for the future. On 10June it was announced that the mandatory quarantine period for all arrivals to the Island would be reduced from 14 to 10 days. Other COVID-19 preventative measures remain in place which include testing on arrival at St Helena and a negative test result being required before the mandatory quarantine period is deemed to be complete. The reduced quarantine period is effective immediately and will be live for the arrival of the Titan Airways Charter flight from London Stansted on Monday, 21 June.

In addition, the Incident Executive Group (IEG) has previously agreed and approved the introduction of a ‘travel corridor’ between St Helena and Ascension, whereby passengers travelling to St Helena from Ascension, and vice versa, would be free from the mandatory quarantine requirements on both islands – subject to certain conditions to which travellers must adhere.

Flights to St Helena from London will continue with a maximum of 96 passengers because this aligns with the Island’s COVID-19 testing and quarantine security system capacity.

Flights beyond August 2021

SHG can now confirm that Titan Airways has been contracted to operate a further series of flight programmes up to March 2022.

Details of the anticipated days of operations are listed below and the flight timings will be similar to those flown previously:

Being able to offer additional flights further in advance gives travellers the flexibility to plan ahead and will ensure continued air access benefiting those wishing to visit friends and family on the Island as well as for business and tourism purposes.
