Cheap flights from French Southern Territories

The Territory of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, simply French Southern and Antarctic Lands, is a group of islands established as an overseas territory of France. Other names for the territory are the French Southern Lands or the French Southern Territories, although the latter does not include Adélie Land and Scattered Islands, where French sovereignty is not internationally recognised. They are located in the Southern Ocean, somewhat equidistant from Africa, Antarctica, and Australia, although the territory consists of a strip of Antarctica itself. The French Southern Territories consists of the following islands: the Kerguelen Islands (Archipel des Kerguelen), which are a group of volcanic islands lying on the southern Indian Ocean; the St. Paul and Amsterdam Islands (Îles Saint Paul et Amsterdam), which are another group situated north of Kerguelen; Crozet Islands (Îles Crozet), south of Madagascar; Adélie Land (Terre Adélie), a claimed territory of France on Antarctica; and the Scattered Islands (Îles Éparses), which are a group of islands spread out on the coast of Madagascar. The islands have no permanent population, only military personnel, scientific researchers, support staff, and civilian officials who occasionally visit.

Where to go

Unfortunately, the French Southern Territories is not intended for tourism. Therefore, no accommodations or commercial establishments and attractions can be found in the islands. The territory is mainly utilised for research purposes, such as meteorological and geophysical research.

There are no short-haul or long-haul flights from the French Southern Territories due to lack of commercial flights in the area.

How to get out

None of the islands have a harbour, although an oceanographic ship called the Marion Dufresne travels back and forth from Reunion to the islands four times a year. The French Southern and Antarctic Lands also possesses four airports in Europa Island, Glorioso Island, Juan de Nova Island, and Tromelin Island. However, there are no commercial passenger flights available to and from the airports.
