Permission & Permits

All aircraft entering the Falklands on a commercial basis will require an appropriate Foreign Operators Permit. It is the Falkland Islands Government's policy that all flights are assumed to be of a commercial nature until it is determined otherwise. Therefore the pilots/ operators of all prospective flights will need to submit an application for a Foreign Operator's Permit before an assessment can be made and permission granted where it is appropriate to do so. A longer term arrangement to fly to and from the Falklands (beyond 14 days) requires the issue of a seasonal permit. Short Term permits can be issued for ad-hoc flights for example; Charters, Medevac Air Ambulance Flights and one off Cargo transport flights.

Foreign Operators Permits – Short Term (<14 Days)

Short term permits are regularly issued to support the community and industry in its needs for air transport with the rest of the world. Please submit all forms and/or queries to: civilaviation@sec.gov.fk.

Letter of Permission - Private Flights

Private flights where no valuable consideration has been exchanged or promised for Carriage of Passengers or Cargo will be issued with a letter of permission mitigating the assumption that the flight is of a commercial nature. This letter should be carried on the flight and be made available on request.

Please use the 'Short Term Application' and cover letter above for private flight applications.

Foreign Operators Permits - Seasonal

Airlines operating scheduled flights will do so in line with the respective ASA between the UK & the Country where the service will originate. An applying Airline may be required to be 'Designated' by its Home State under the terms of the relevant Air Services Agreement in order to operate the permitted services and it is the responsibility of the operator to ensure such a designation is in order.
