A New Era of Antarctica Flights
Take to the skies over Antarctica aboard the 787 Dreamliner. You are afforded optimal views onboard Qantas 787 Dreamliner to the vast white wilderness thanks to windows 65% larger than any other vessel of its size. Its lower cabin altitude mitigates the discomfort passengers may sometimes experience during and after a long flight. USB charging ports and personal HD touchscreens are also available for all seating classes, for those moments in between iceberg spotting.
What To Expect
The flight provides a full day of Antarctic experience. Our flight from Australia ranges between 9,500 – 10,500 kms round trip (approximately 12.5 hours) depending on your departure city. Expert Antarctic expeditioners are onboard to talk on the polar environment and its history while video screenings depict life on the ground.
Approximately three hours south of Australia, passengers will usually see the first scattered ice followed by dozens of icebergs and ice floes. We then cross the South Magnetic Pole where you will start to view the rugged mountainous topography of the Antarctic mainland.
Where You Fly
Whilst you will be over the Antarctica Treaty area for around 4 hours, approximately 3 – 4 hours will be spent flying over the Antarctic continent.
In planning the route, considerable time is taken to select the most spectacular area of Antarctica within aircrafts range. The selected area will be chosen from 19 different flight plans, taking into account:
- Maximum viewing potential from both sides of the aircraft
- Maximum penetration over Antarctica
- Maximum variety in land mass scenery, including high mountains, glaciers, ice plateau and coastline
- The best possibility for viewing should weather conditions be adverse
Commitment to the Environment
It is Antarctica Flights mission to leave this pristine landscape the way they found it. That’s why every Antarctica Flight is carbon neutral. Inspired by their Antarctic experience, many guests go on to become environmental ambassadors.
