Flight Bookings

When can tickets be booked?

Flights to and from St Helena

The air service is a charter service paid for by employers operating on Ascension Island. Priority is therefore given to the employers to ensure their staff are able to travel to and from the island. Remaining seats will be released for sale to the general public three months before the date of departure of each flight. As such the majority of requests for bookings will be confirmed within three months prior to the date of departure. For flights either side of the Christmas season, bookings will be confirmed within eight weeks of the date of departure.

Tickets may be booked up until 13:00 (GMT) on the Thursday preceding the weekend of the scheduled flight. Ticket bookings received after this time will not be processed for travel. Passengers are advised to book as far in advance as possible.

Flights to and from the UK

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.

To request a booking or to make enquiries, please email or call on +247 67000, extension 111. Booking forms are also available on the AIG website here. Tickets will be issued with flight details and baggage allowances.

How to Book Tickets

There is no online booking system for tickets. Visitor tickets can only be booked through the AIG Flight Bookings Team.

All visitors and tourists must be issued an entry VISA prior to travel.

You must have a minimum of six months validity on your passport upon arrival to be granted entry to Ascension Island.

To book tickets you will need to complete a Flight Booking Form and email this to the AIG Flight Bookings Team.
