380 million dollar airport on the remote island of Helena is finally open for business

the weekly service between Johannesburg and St Helena is now regularly scheduled

The virgin flight, an SA Airlink service from South Africa, ends the island's long-standing reliance on a ship which sailed every three weeks.

It is hoped that the service, funded by the UK, will boost tourism and help make St Helena more self-sufficient.

But British media have dubbed it "the most useless airport in the world", mostly because the British taxpayers paid for it, and have no use for it

I posted about it in May 2016
