Have you ever thought that getting to and from St Helena via the St Helena’s newly built Airport as a tourist was impossible by air, then it is not, if you talk to No limits Travel and Tours. St Helena has spent many long hours marketing the Island as a tourist destination in readiness for the Airport opening and the Islands transition from sea to air travel, however due to the safety concerns, the Airport is not open for commercial operations and the forecast of regular visitors has not been possible, however yesterday St Helena welcomed the Maselis family from Belgium, who arrived on a private jet and was the first official tourist to land on the Island by air.
No Limits Travel and Tours under the companies branding Island images were asked months ago to facilitate the entire visit to the Island. Yesterday that visit was a reality for the home grown motivated Travel and Tour company, today it was successful Island history as the Patrick Maselis and his family departed St Helena after twenty fours on Island. Here is summary of the visit as Island Images summarises the experience of the visit on their news page on their website which can found here.
Derek said this afternoon in a telephone conversation this is hopefully one of many visits and hinted that he will soon be looking out from the observation deck at the airport for another potential client to arrive.
