The island of Saint Helena is one of the most remote inhabited places in the world. It is located in the middle of South Atlantic, 1,200 miles from Angola and 1,900 from Brazil. Famous for Napoleon's exile, it was reachable only by sea.
But now things may change. After two years of forced closure for security reasons, the airport built by the British government is now open and a weekly flight connects the island to Johannesburg and Cape Town. The locals (called "Saints") hope that tourism can become the first source of income for the community, putting an end to the exile that lasts for 5 centuries.
However, the new air link will mean the loss of an integral part of the island: the ship that for years has guaranteed its connection with the rest of the planet.
