Published on : Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Antartica-QantasTake off on the ultimate New Year’s Eve adventure this year aboard Antarctica Flights’ specially chartered Qantas 747 to one of the world’s most difficult to reach destinations.

 

 

Antarctica Flights has announced bookings are now open for its unique all inclusive trip, which gives guests the opportunity to take in the vast expanse and breathtaking beauty of this frozen wilderness in just one day.

 

 

Only accessible to Australians, this special day flight over the pristine white landscape of the Earth’s southernmost continent takes in the icebergs, coastal cliffs, glaciers and spectacular mountain ranges for which Antarctica is renowned.

 

 

Quality celebratory drinks plus dinner and a live on board jazz band add to the once in a lifetime excitement of the New Years Eve “Midnight Sun” flight, while expert Antarctic expeditioners are also on board to talk about the polar environment and life on the ground.

 

 

For 21 years, Antarctica Flights has taken more than 45,000 travellers on 125 flights across the Antarctic and, according to Phil Asker, Founder and Director of Antarctica Flights, the New Years Eve flight continues to attract the most interest:

 

“People are always looking for new and exciting ways to celebrate the New Year. Here in Australia, our close proximity means that we can actually fly to Antarctica and back in just one day. It’s a once-in a lifetime experience. And what a phenomenal experience it is. Guests tell us that there is something quite special about being one of the first people in the world to welcome the New Year in daylight.

 

 

“Unlike cruises, there are no long sailing times, the cost is not prohibitive and because you are viewing Antarctica by air you get to experience its full majesty and gain an appreciation for its size. It’s a great feeling to know that through our Antarctica Flights we enable more people to fulfill what is often a lifelong dream, to see this stunning continent in all its glory.”

 

 

Antarctica Flights’ New Year’s Eve itinerary takes approximately four hours to reach the South Magnetic Pole, descending over spectacular sea ice and icebergs and crossing the Antarctic coast near the French research base at Dumont d’Urville.

 

 

From there the aircraft flies over magnificent glaciers and ice fields before continuing to Cape Hudson and Cape Washington and the astounding Trans Antarctic Range.

 

 

Up to 19 different routes are available to take advantage of the clearest weather conditions of the day, ensuring the best possible views of the Antarctic landscape.
