Avro RJ100 jet expected to land at St Helena Airport today

Posted 21 October 2016 · Add Comment

An Avro RJ100 jet aircraft, operated by Tronos Jet Maintenance and carrying Atlantic Star Airlines personnel, is scheduled to fly to Wideawake Airport, Ascension Island, and then to St Helena Airport today, 21 October 2016.

Both are technical stops, as part of a route for delivery of the aircraft to Chile.

The aircraft will be carrying 13 non-commercial passengers - including the flight crew - who will overnight on St Helena prior to departure on Saturday 22 October.

The Tronos flight will provide the airport with additional real time data and a pilot’s report - all part of building a more comprehensive picture of the conditions at St Helena Airport under which we will be asking a scheduled air service to operate. The flight is also planning, weather permitting, to conduct some additional circuits on Saturday to gather further data for the Airport. Atlantic Star is one of a number of potential partners with an interest in operating regular flights to St Helena.
