South Africa Airlink to finally establish flights to St Helena

South Africa Airlink will offer scheduled commercial air services to St Helena when it starts flights between South Africa and the island later this year.

This follows a period of contractual negotiations between St Helena government and the airline.

Initially Airlink is expected to offer a weekly Saturday service to-and-from South Africa to St Helena using the new Embraer E190-100IGW ETOPS certified aircraft that has already undertaken a number of very successful test flights to the island.
