The United States Minor Outlying Islands is a collection of nine small islands located in the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. These islands are unorganized, unincorporated territories of the United States and have no permanent population. The islands are mostly used for wildlife conservation and scientific research.
As there is no permanent population on the islands, there is no official language or currency. However, English is the language used by those who visit the islands for scientific research or military purposes.
As the United States Minor Outlying Islands are located in different regions of the world, flight times from the UK would vary significantly depending on the specific island. However, the islands are generally remote and difficult to reach by commercial air travel.
The islands also have different time zones, depending on their location. Baker Island, Howland Island, Jarvis Island, Kingman Reef, and Palmyra Atoll are all in the UTC-12 time zone, which is 12 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-12). Johnston Atoll and Midway Atoll are in the UTC-11 time zone, which is 11 hours behind GMT-11. Navassa Island and Wake Island use the UTC+12 time zone, which is 12 hours ahead of GMT+12.
As there are no commercial airports on the islands, there is no main airport address to provide. Access to the islands is typically restricted to scientific research teams or military personnel, who must travel to the islands via military or government transportation.
