Overview

A new chapter for Antarctica Flights - Welcome to Antarctica – the world’s last great wilderness. Aboard our privately chartered plane, you will soar over a continent that escapes the boundaries of perception.
For the first time in our history of touring, we board the 787 Dreamliner, which affords us optimal views to the vast white wilderness, thanks to windows larger than those on a similar sized aircraft.
The lower cabin altitude also creates a more comfortable environment in which to enjoy your flight. This new chapter promises to be the very best yet.

Antarctica facts Antarctica is larger than Europe and almost twice as big as Australia, but only 2% is ice-free It’s the world’s driest continent, with an annual snowfall equating to just 200 millimeters of water. That’s even less than the annual rainfall of the world’s hot deserts!> The coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth was in Antarctica: -89.6°C at Vostok Station in July 1983> Antarctica holds 70% of the planet’s fresh water and 90% of the planet’s freshwater ice. The average ice sheet is a whopping 1.4 kilometers thick!> During winter, the pack-ice zone in the Southern Ocean almost doubles in size, extending to between 19 and 22 million square kilometers> Australia has three permanent bases in the wilderness: Mawson (1954), Davis (1957) and Casey (1969). Don’t forget to give them a wave if we fly over!
