Does St Helena have an operational airport?

I'm looking into a trip to St Helena and getting conflicting reports on whether the airport is operational or not? It seems building is complete (the due date for airport completion is long past) and a number of planes have landed - some sources say it is open for business but most seem unsure of when it will actually start receiving commercial flights. Can anybody advise me on when flights from South Africa and the UK will be available to St Helena? And if it won't be anytime soon, how does one get there by ship? Thanks.
