Obsidian closes after 15 Ĺ years on Ascension
It is with the deepest regret that the Shareholders in Obsidian have decided to close their hotel/car hire business on Ascension. We have chosen to keep the business going for the six months since the curtailing of flight links with the U.K. in the hope that a worthwhile service would resume or at the very least be announced. Sadly, the air links currently proposed are completely inadequate for the purposes of maintaining a fully functioning hotel and the unknown timing of the runway resurfacing mean it is impossible for Obsidian to continue its operations any further into such an uncertain future.
The Shareholders would like to publicly and sincerely thank each of Obsidianís staff for all their endeavours over the years and for contributing so much to making Obsidian the thriving business it became.
Finally, Obsidian wishes all those on Ascension the very best as they continue to struggle through these uncertain times.
