Description: The project aims to establish sustainable air services to St Helena to promote economic development and increased financial self-sufficiency, leading eventually to graduation from UK budgetary support. This is being done through the construction of an airport and the introduction of scheduled air services. The project also includes support to the operation of the airport for a period of ten years and the construction of a wharf. The project has established the necessary legal, regulatory and monitoring framework, and includes a series of reforms currently being implemented by the St Helena Government to open up the island to inward investment and increased tourism.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: A Gate 0 Review of the St Helena Airport Programme was undertaken in April 2014. The Delivery Confidence was an improvement from the previous review.

Start date: 2005-03-15
End date: 2026-08-31
Schedule text: By end September 2014, construction of the airport was approximately 70% complete. Currently the project is running to time for opening in early 2016, and to budget, though significant challenges remain. A separate contract has been signed for the management of aviation and ground fuels, and bids have been received for the provision of air services.
Baseline: £33.54m
Forecast: £34.57m
Variance: 3.10%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £445.17m
WLCost text: The whole life costs cover the 40 year design life of the airport. The costs are attributable to both the UK Government and St Helena Government; with UK Government commitment due to cease in 2026 after 10 years of airport operations. Areas of expenditure included when calculating the whole-life cost are: planning, design, construction, operations, maintenance, asset renewal and/or disposal. As the project is forecasting so far into the future (2046) there are high levels of uncertainty pertaining to some of the costs
