Bleaker Island : : Getting Here

From Stanley and elsewhere in the Falkland Islands, the Falkland Islands Government Air Service (FIGAS) is the only option. The aircraft type is the Britten-Norman Islander, with a seating capacity of 9 (although the Bleaker Island runway can only take 7 passengers due to its length).

From July 2013 a return fare Stanley-Bleaker-Stanley is £150 for a non-resident, with a baggage allowance of 20kgs. Fares are dependent on the distance flown, and further details can be obtained from Figas Operations Control on email FOperationsControl@figas.gov.fk


Local tour operators can also make the necessary arrangements, and their details are:-
