    It is necessary to reach an agreement with Argentina for the flights and to establish a tourist circuit Malvinas / Ushuaia, Bariloche, Rio Gallegos, Buenos Aires, etc. and vice versa.

    @Malvinense 1833. What rubbish. When CFK started issuing edicts against tour ships because they had visited the Falklands, they skipped your grotty country and went on to Chile where they were greeted with a warm welcome. As to flights, At the moment there is a flight from Chile that is obliged to touch down in Argentina. I believe that there are talks afoot to fly to other South American destinations which have sod all to do with Argentina.

    “It is necessary to reach an agreement with Argentina for the flights and to establish a tourist circuit ”

    That depends on whether or not the tourists visiting the Falklands wish to go to Argentina.

    The cruise ships are not (currently) based in the Falklands, so an agreement with Argentina is not necessary.

    To give your countrymen some credit, they don't appear to be burning tyres on the quaysides as an 'ingenious' method of attracting foreign tourists anymore.

    Previously, this 'welcome' meant that cruise ships calling in at the Falklands went to Chile instead.
