9 May 2023

Government, Press Release, Travel and Shipping

The AIG is pleased to announce that the MOD have made available fifteen seats on each of the flights to and from Ascension and the UK, starting when the Airbridge resumes on 8 May. The AIG will manage the booking process.  Flight bookings are currently accessible to staff working on Ascension, their dependents and visiting family and friends.  The MOD will currently not permit transit bookings or those where Airbridge passengers intend to link visits to Ascension with travel to or from St Helena via the Airlink. However, the MOD will review this decision in the near future, once the Airbridge is re-established.


The price for fares will be as follows:




Children under 2 years of age: Travel Free

Children aged 2 and over: Full adult fare

Bookings with less than 14 days’ notice: Seats must be requested from the MOD, so there is no guarantee seating will be available. Bookings will incur an additional £30 late booking fee on top of the standard fare.

Waitlisted Bookings: An additional £30 is chargeable for seats AIG requests in addition to the 15-seat allocation.

Cancellation more than 3 days’ notice: Full refund less a £30 administrative fee per person

Cancellation less than 3 days’ notice: No refund on the full cost paid for ticket.

Amendments: Amendments are permitted, if requested at least 72 hours prior to the flight departure date. An amendment fee of £30 per person, is chargeable for each amendment made.
