The small and remote island of St Helena, a British Overseas Territory in the middle of the South Atlantic, has recently witnessed an exciting moment in it’s history – the arrival of the first commercial scheduled airline at it’s new, £285m international airport.

Of course, the island is already of interest to those of a historical hue, as it was famously the location of Napoleon’s exile after his defeat at the battle of Waterloo. However, with the arrival of a brand new airport, St Helena is increasingly accessible to the wider world, with the number of intrepid visitors and tourists now expected to rise accordingly.

At the moment, however, commercial services to this island are limited to one weekly flight from Johannesburg, meaning that for those looking to fly to St Helena, a private jet remains the most practical and convenient means of travel.
