Flights to the Falklands:
The preferred option for most visitors is to enter through Chile. Every Saturday, LATAM offers a direct flight from Santiago (SCL) with a return trip on the same day. The flight makes a stop in Punta Arenas (PUQ), a southern Chilean city, for customs procedures. Once a month, the flight also stops in Rio Gallegos, Argentina (RGL).
To obtain information and pricing for flights to the Falkland Islands from various destinations, you can get in touch with International Tours & Travel Ltd, the Latam Airlines General Sales Agent in the Falkland Islands.

If you are traveling to the Falkland Islands from Santiago, please be aware that you will need to depart from the Domestic Terminal instead of the International Terminal. This is because the flight to Punta Arenas is considered a domestic flight. 

The United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence offers biweekly flights from Brize Norton in Oxfordshire to the Falkland Islands, with a  stop in Ascension Island . These flights depart from the UK every Sunday and Wednesday, while return flights leave the Falklands on Tuesdays and Fridays. Civilian passengers can secure seats on these flights through the Falkland Islands Government Office. 
These flights may be subject to unexpected alterations at the last moment. Therefore, it is essential for travelers to plan their schedule with ample time around their intended travel dates to accommodate any unforeseen circumstances.
