SUCCESSFUL MEDEVAC FLIGHT

Another successful emergency aero-medical evacuation from St Helena Airport took place on the weekend to transfer three patients, accompanied by a St Helena staff member, to Cape Town.

The Falcon 20 aircraft, operated by Guardian Air, arrived at St Helena Airport at around 11.25hrs on Sunday 15 January 2017. Everything went as planned and the flight departed for Cape Town at 07.50hrs this morning, Monday 16 January 2017.

The flight takes four hours and the estimated arrival time in Cape Town is 11.50hrs (St Helena time).

    Well done. The more publicity you print concerning such flights the better, to keep frothing armchair critics in the UK from becoming even more unhinged.

    DONT KNOW WHY A PLANE HAVE NOT ARRIVED FROM THE UK THER MUST BE 2 OR MORE THEY COULD TEST AS I AM SURE THAT EMBAURER WILL BE CHOSEN TO COME FROM CAPE TOWN TO ST HELENA BUT THE SAINTS NEED ONE ALSO FROM THE UK THE AIR LINES CHOSEN MUST ALSO KEEP TICKET PRICES AFFORDABLE BY KEEPING BAGGAGE WEIGHT TO 15 KILOS IF NEED BE BUT CAPE IS A GOOD START.

    Congratulations, get that airport operating fully by whatever means a.s.a.p
    When I visited the island ,before the airport was even approved I realised how very essential it was to have it .

    Please keep these reports coming, as I’d like to know ASAP when commercial passenger flights become available.
