St Helena Government (SHG) recently announced an additional Titan Airways charter flight at the end of August.
The Titan flight that was scheduled to arrive on Monday of this week experienced a 24-hour delay due to poor weather conditions on the Island, as a result of this it has become necessary to cancel one of the two shuttle flights to Ascension Island this week. This is to ensure that the flight departs St Helena on schedule for London on Thursday, 12 August*.
It is now planned to operate/offer an additional shuttle to Ascension Island on the next Titan charter flight to the Island scheduled for late August. The additional service will result in the return flight to London being delayed by 24-hours and departing on Monday, 23 August*, and not Sunday, 22 August, as previously scheduled.
SHG apologises for any inconvenience this may cause to persons who had originally planned to return to London on 22 August.
The revised schedule for this flight is below*:
