UK-built planes

Britten-Norman has two new BN2B-26 Islanders on its production line for the Falkland Islands Government Aviation Service (FIGAS), bringing the service’s fleet to a total of six Islanders by the time the second aircraft is delivered.

The investment, approved by the Falkland’s Government, will be used to meet the islands’ increasing popularity as a tourist destination. Britten-Norman says the first of the aircraft will be delivered this summer, with the second scheduled for early 2020. FIGAS has operated Islanders since October 1979.
