    Since October 12, 2022, landing and take-off operations at Fernando de Noronha airport [FEN; SBFN] have been prohibited for aircraft with reaction engines – such as commercial aircraft and jets. The decision is a safety measure and was taken by the Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) because of the bad conditions of the runway.

    It is expected that repair works, which have already commenced, will continue. After the improvements have been completed, operations are expected to resume, as the infrastructure will then comply with the requirements of the Brazilian Civil Aviation Regulations (RBAC).

    To preserve the archipelago, the government of Pernambuco usually maintains a high standard of safety on site, in addition to controlling the number of tourists. Since 2016, Flapper has successfully offered jet flights and air taxi services to the region, respecting all the regulations and offering the best possible experience for those who want to visit this paradise destination.

    Meanwhile, we continue to offer air taxi flights to Fernando de Noronha, as any aircraft with permission to fly over large expanses of water is permitted to travel. Flights can be carried out on an exclusive basis (charter) or purchased per seat by combining two separate groups of clients (Flapper Pool).
