St Helena is Booming
The government of St Helena has announced that Airlink is their preferred bidder to fly passengers between South Africa and the island. Until the airport opened, the only scheduled way to travel to and from St Helena was aboard the Royal Mail Ship St Helena. An influx of tourists to the remote destination is anticipated and award-winning hospitality group Mantis has renovated three Georgian buildings to form a luxury hotel. The Mantis St Helena will comprise 30 beautifully decorated bedrooms. With hundreds of endemic species and impressive marine biodiversity, St Helena is on the list of the United Kingdom as a possible future UNESCO World Heritage Site.
