Argentina and the U.K. agreed to increase the frequency of commercial flights from Argentina to the Malvinas Islands. While the political control of the Malvinas has been a contentious issue between the two nations.

Travel to the Islands is currently limited. The limited flights were part of former President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's strategy to increase Argentine control over the disputed islands.

The islands are currently governed as a British overseas territory, but in March 2016 U.N. ruling said that the Islands were in Argentine waters.
