St.Helena now has a real airport that can handle passenger aircraft. It’s rare in the western world to see a new airport like this open. The island used to depend on a mail ship (those of you from the colonies know what this means) so having air service is a big thing. For readers who like the idea of traveling someplace different, St. Helena should be added to your bucket list. Note you will need to fly way south to Johannesburg to fly north to the island.
