The World's Most Unique Scenic Flight

Welcome to Antarctica - the world's last great wilderness. Become one of the privileged few to witness the desolate beauty of this untamed polar desert. Aboard a privately chartered Qantas 787 Dreamliner, you will experience unparalleled Antarctic viewing over the vast and various landscapes of this continent.

What to Expect Onboard

With nineteen planned routes to match the day's weather and viewing conditions, no two trips are ever the same, each with a duration of between twelve and fourteen hours. Enjoy full Qantas service onboard, including premium drinks, delicious meals and talks from Antarctic expeditioners. You'll have up to four hours over the ice, and the remaining time spent to enjoy being onboard. It's truly an experience like no other.

A Birdseye View

About three hours south of Australia, passengers will usually see the first scattered ice followed by dozens of icebergs and ice floes. The flight then crosses the South Magnetic Pole where you will start to view the rugged mountainous topography of the Antarctic mainland.

In planning the route, considerable time is taken to select the most spectacular area of Antarctica within range. Many factors are taken into account when planning the route, including maximum viewing potential from both sides of the plane and the variety in land mass scenery. The photos here were taken during a previous flight - and from all reports it is truly one of the most incredible travel experiences you will have.


How Does It Work?

As the flight doesn't touch down anywhere, technically you don't leave Australia, or even cross a domestic border! There are departures from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, and all you'll need is your drivers licence! Select from one of six different seating categories, including different levels of economy, premium economy and business class.


The Finer Details

The departure dates are as follows:
* Melbourne 15 November 2020
* Sydney 22 November 2020
* Melbourne New Year's Eve 31 December 2020
* Perth Australia Day 26 January 2021
* Brisbane 7 February 2021
* Sydney 21 February 2021

To secure a seat, a non-refundable deposit of $300 per person applies, with the balance due two months prior to departure. There is added flexibility to the terms and conditions this year, allowing for the booking to be transferred in full to another person up until 24 hours before, for credits to be given if a passenger is ill on the day of travel, and refunds given if travel isn't permitted due to COVID-related travel restrictions.
