Getting around by air

LanChile operates one weekly flight (Saturday, 1¾ hours) from Punta Arenas, Chile to Mt Pleasant International Airport (MPN), occasionally stopping in Rio Gallegos, Argentina, en route. From other countries, connect to the LanChile flight in Santiago, where it originates.

Britain’s Royal Air Force makes six flights per month from RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, England (20 hours). Only 28 seats on each flight are reserved for nonmilitary personnel; book well ahead, particularly during summer. You can choose to stay over at the refueling stop on tiny Ascension Island in the South Atlantic. Book with Falkland Islands Government Office.
