Flights to the United Kingdom & Falkland Islands


South Atlantic Airbridge flights via Ascension Island are currently suspended due to air safety reasons.   AIG do not expect South Atlantic Airbridge flights using RAF Voyager aircraft to resume until 2020/21 at the earliest.  

The Ministry of Defence and Foreign and Commonwealth Office are working to identify alternative travel arrangements for essential personnel living and working on Ascension Island.

Travel between the UK and Falkland Islands is unaffected as the Airbridge is being routed through Cape Verde.
