MOSCOW, may 7 — RIA Novosti. For the first time since it was built at the airport of Saint Helena landed a passenger plane, writes the Times.
The airport was called the most useless due to the fact that on the construction site, the local authorities spent around 285 million pounds (approximately us $ 370 million), but the first passenger flight was made only now — a year later after construction.
The publication notes that the airport is on a cliff, so on a platform of strong wind blows, making it difficult to fit.
Landed on the island a plane with 60 passengers on Board was flying from South Africa. Local authorities hope the airport will be increasingly used after this flight.
