Flights from British Indian Ocean Territory
The British Indian Ocean Territory, also known as Chagos Islands, is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom located in the Indian Ocean. It is situated halfway between Tanzania and Indonesia. It comprises Chagos Archipelago’s seven atolls with more than 1,000 individual islands. Its largest and southernmost island is Diego Garcia, which is a site of a joint military facility of the United Kingdom and the United States.
The British Indian Ocean Territory is considered as remote islands, therefore making visits impractical. In fact, there are no commercial tours to the Chagos Archipelago. Access is restricted while private visits are limited and must abide by strict rules. Although it is accessible by private yacht, you should secure permission from the BIOT government first. Most of the non-government visitors to the archipelago are highly skilled scientists who land a sought-after position on one of the occasional research expeditions to the area. Volunteer and visiting opportunities are rare, or little to none.
Where to go
Unfortunately, the British Indian Ocean Territory is not intended for tourism, therefore, there are no commercial flights available into our or out of the islands. Only military facilities can be found here, and no civilian settlements.
All ports of entry in the British Indian Ocean Territory are exclusively for military use. There are no commercial flights offered to and from the islands. Private planes are also prohibited, unless they have a permit from the government.
As mentioned, the territory is mainly for military purposes only and there are no commercial flights offered here.
How to get out
British Indian Ocean Territory is served by one airport, Diego Garcia Tracking Station, a military airport which offers extremely limited entry because of the large American and British military presence on the island. Access to Diego Garcia is only permitted to those with connections to the military facility.
