Antarctic Scenic Flights

Once in a lifetime views

Regarding life-changing travel experiences, very few compare to the allure of beholding Antarctica’s pristine, icy expanse. This November, Antarctica Flights are set to redefine wanderlust by allowing travellers to embark on a day-long adventure over the world’s final untouched frontier.

Beginning this November, intrepid voyagers can buckle up aboard a privately chartered Qantas 787 Dreamliner and embark on their most sensational aerial journey. The unparalleled sightseeing flight, curated exclusively for the Australian market, promises the entirety of the Antarctic spectacle – without needing a passport!

Amid the flight, passengers are graced with nearly three hours of panoramic views, from hints of scattered ice to the majestic visions of icebergs and ice floes, eventually leading to a majestic pass over the South Magnetic Pole. The rugged mountainous regions of mainland Antarctica unfurl below, offering sights typically reserved for polar explorers.

The end of this year promises something even more spectacular. Imagine welcoming 2024, thousands of feet above Antarctica’s shimmering ice sheets, bathed in perpetual daylight! This dream will become a reality for those aboard the special New Year’s Eve flights departing from Melbourne and Brisbane on 31st December 2023.

Pioneered by Phil Asker over a quarter-century ago, these journeys epitomise uniqueness. Each of the seven flights scheduled between November 2023 and February 2024 has a specially crafted route, ensuring that no two experiences are identical. While aboard, travellers can select from various seating options catering to different budgets and preferences.

In a statement, Antarctica Flights’ CEO, Bas Bosschieter, said, “Our flights are not just about sightseeing; they’re education. While cruise ships merely touch the Antarctic coastline, our passengers soar right over it! It’s a rare opportunity to witness this ethereal white wilderness and gain insights from polar specialists without needing luggage or passports.”

While the company takes passengers on a breathtaking journey, their commitment remains grounded to the planet. In cognizance of Antarctica’s fragility amidst the climate crisis, they are ardently championing further research and education. Their collaboration with the Antarctic Science Foundation and endeavours to carbon offset every flight speak volumes of their commitment to safeguarding the last great wilderness.

For the eager globetrotters marking their calendars:

  • Sydney takes off on 26th November 2023 and 4th February 2024.
  • Melbourne soars on 19th November and 31st December 2023.
