A new chapter for Antarctica Flights

Welcome to Antarctica – the world’s last great wilderness. Qantas has been exploring Antarctica by air since 1994 – that’s over 150 flights and 26 years pioneering a land that remains almost entirely undiscovered. Aboard a cruise ship you would only touch the edge of the coast. Aboard their privately chartered plane, you will soar over a continent that escapes the boundaries of perception. For the first time in their history of touring, you board the 787 Dreamliner, which affords you 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.

What to expect on board

Become one of the privileged few to witness the desolate beauty of this untamed polar desert. Aboard Qantas’s privately chartered state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliner, you will experience unparalleled Antarctic viewing over the vast and various landscapes of this wild continent. And with 19 planned routes to match the day’s weather conditions, no two flights are ever the same, each with a duration between 12 and 14 hours. Enjoy the bespoke full Qantas service – including premium drinks, delicious meals and talks from Antarctic expeditioners. With up to four hours over the ice and the remaining time to enjoy onboard – it’s an experience like no other.
