Brazil could have flights to the Falkland Islands

The governments of the South American country and the United Kingdom are negotiating the proposal of a route to the archipelago.

Brazil could have in the future flights to the Falkland Islands or Malvinas. At the moment the government of that country is in negotiations with its pair of the United Kingdom for the approval of a route that connects Brazil with the archipelago of the South Atlantic.

The service should start before the month of October and, according to Brazilian media, it would depart from the São Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport. Three airlines dispute the route, Gol, Avianca and LATAM.

The British government is hopeful that the new flights can reduce the isolation of the islands and help boost tourism, which in 2016 left gains of 5.6 million pounds.

Currently there is only one regular flight between the Falkland Islands and the American continent: LATAM Airlines has a weekly service to Mount Pleasant Airport (MPN). The same departs from Santiago and makes a stopover in Punta Arenas, both in Chile. Once a month, the flight adds a stop in the Argentine city of Rio Gallegos.
