Celebrating 25 Years of The World’s Most Exciting Day Trip

The one and only, Antarctica Flights, is celebrating 25 years of fulfilling the dreams of over 40,000 guests since their first charter in 1994. With each new season comes new sights to behold, join the privileged few to witness the desolate beauty of this untamed landscape.

The 25th season of Antarctica Flights will commence on 18 November 2018 departing from Sydney, and for the first time ever, an Antarctica Flight will be available from Hobart on 25 November 2018. The ever-popular New Year's Eve Antarctica Flight ex Melbourne will be making a return, perfectly positioning passengers over the icy continent right in time to ring in the New Year while witnessing glaciers, icebergs and lunar landscapes, as the sound of a four-piece jazz band plays live in the cabin.

This unique experience is the only way to visit Antarctica from Australia and the only 'flightseeing' tour in the world to explore the region. With Antarctica Flights, reach the continent in just four hours aboard a privately chartered Qantas 747—and be back to sleep in your own bed that same night.

No two flights are the same, with up to 19 weather dependent routes, there's no wonder this is every pilot's favourite flight to command. With up to 4 hours viewing time over the ice paired with Qantas' full international flight service, commentary from the cockpit and Antarctica experts hosting the flight, it's certainly a special treat for adventurers young and young at heart. Take in the sights as the plane descends to as low as 10,000 ft and swoops in figure 8 patterns to maximize viewing opportunities of research bases, mountainous peaks and colossal icebergs below.

"The length of time sailing rough seas and cost of a cruise to Antarctica means the closest most people will ever come to seeing the world's last great wilderness is via their TV screen. Our one-day sightseeing flights enable more people to fulfil a lifelong dream of seeing Antarctica," explained Phil Asker, Founder of Antarctica Flights.

Enjoy unparalleled bird's eye views stretching far beyond the horizon, while on-board Antarctic experts inspire guests with intrepid expedition stories and in flight documentaries about the region to complete a truly immersive experience. Normal travel rules go out the window, everyone is encouraged to rotate around the cabin to enjoy a different viewing perspective. The atmosphere on board is charged with adventure.

How often do you get the chance to tick an entire continent off your wish list – in a day? With a range of seat classes available to suit all budgets, an Antarctica experience would make the ideal special occasion gift—or treat for yourself.
