St Helena Government (SHG) continues to plan for the future, this includes maintaining an effective air service for travel to and from the Island.
Recently it was announced that, due to increased demand, three additional charter flights had been added to the schedule during peak travel periods.
To improve the passenger booking process for all charter flights, SHG has partnered with the Shipping & Travel Department of Solomon & Company (St Helena) Plc. Solomons will now take on full responsibility for the customer booking process, this will include flight booking requests, cargo, confirming flight arrangements and processing ticket deposits and payments.
SHG’s Head of Civil Aviation, Mark Souter, said:
“We are very happy to have Solomons working with us on the Titan Airways charter flights booking process. This is an area where they have prior experience having undertaken a similar role with Airlink and passengers will benefit from an improved and focussed service.”
“We are very pleased to be partnered with SHG in supporting these vital travel links to and from St Helena and look forward to once again assisting passengers with their travel arrangements.”
