The unique New Year’s Eve Antarctica Flight from Melbourne still has limited seats available from $1,199 per person
Those looking for a memorable way to welcome the new decade this New Year’s Eve should look no further than Antarctica Flights. Departing from Melbourne mid-afternoon, the return chartered Qantas flight positions guests over the icy continent right in time to ring in the New Year. Passengers will bear witness to glaciers, icebergs and lunar landscapes as the sound of a four-piece jazz band plays live in the cabin.
And with up to 19 weather dependent routes with up to four hours viewing time over the ice, no two flights are the same. Paired with Qantas’ full international flight service, commentary from the cockpit and Antarctica experts hosting the flight, the plane descends to as low as 10,000 ft and swoops in figure-8 patterns to maximise viewing opportunities of research bases, mountainous peaks and colossal icebergs below.
Better yet, no passport or luggage are required. You can even go in your board shorts, if that’s your thing.
Limited seats also available on the 16 February 2020 flight from Melbourne.
