Destination - Falkland Flights

Domestic flights within the Falkland Islands are operated by the Falkland Islands Government Air Service (FIGAS) with Britten-Norman BN-2B Islanders. 

The FIGAS service is the sole method of transportation to the outer islands which are home to some of the most important concentrations of wild-life in the Falklands. Travelling around the islands on FIGAS is a big part of the Falkland experience for visitors. The low altitude flying allows encompassing views of the islands as you transfer from one destination to another. The total complement of passengers will be 8 people or less so you will undoubtedly get to know other visitors and share your experiences. You will also get to know the pilots by name. You may be lucky enough to sit at the front of the plane next to the pilot who will ensure you don't miss any sights below on your journey.

FIGAS flights are operated on demand in the style of an air-taxi service. The flight schedule for each day is advised during the afternoon the day before. The itinerary for each flight is determined by the destinations reserved, the total number of passengers travelling and any landing strip weight restrictions.

Apart from Stanley and Mount Pleasant airports, landing strips around the islands are generally grass strips.

The luggage allowance for visitors is 20kg per person. This is the total allowance for checked and hand luggage. Apart from a small camera case or similar, no other items can be carried in your seat as hand luggage. It is possible to pay extra to transport excess luggage but this must be reserved and paid for in advance. Excess luggage is charged per kilo and per each flight sector of your itinerary.

Charter flights can be reserved by prior arrangement, subject to availability.
