Airlink to St. Helena
Be one of the first to visit by air this fascinating British Overseas Territory of great natural and historic significance, a remote volcanic island, previously only accessible by Royal Mail ship
Visitors to the British Overseas Territory of St Helena will be welcomed to one of the remotest islands in the world: lying in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean between Brazil and Angola it is a beautiful tropical island of volcanic origin.
Most noted for its long association with the famous East India Company and the place of Napoleon’s exile and death in 1821, it was for a while a successful provider of flax but as synthetic fibres were introduced, the island’s main trade decreased and with it visits from commercial shipping and line voyages heading for South Africa.
St Helena is known as the Galápagos of the South Atlantic; after 14 million years of isolation it boasts 500 endemic species and a coastline frequented by marine life including dolphins and whale sharks. Now, with the introduction of an airport the lonely Island is easier to get to than ever and we would love to be the ones to take you there.
