Safety & Flexibility

To ensure the health and safety of our passengers and crew during this extraordinary time all passengers onboard Antarctica Flights must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Additional measures will also be implemented throughout your Antarctica Flights experience. In conjunction with airport and airline regulations, we will exercise the following measures:

  • All passengers onboard our Antarctica Flights must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Fully vaccinated means that there has been at least 14 clear days from your second dose and the date of your Antarctica Flight. Learn more about this requirement here
  • For the peace of mind of all passengers, everyone will be required to complete a Health and Safety declaration form.  
  • Wearing a face mask throughout the flight is mandatory as well as in most airports before and after the flight.
  • The cabin crew and Antarctica Flight staff will assist in the seat swapping process, that occurs at the half way point of the flight, with increased sanitisation measures.
  • Qantas are implementing strict cleaning protocols. There is enhanced cleaning of the aircraft with a disinfectant effective against coronaviruses, with a focus on high contact areas – seats, seatbelts, overhead lockers, air vents and toilets. The air conditioning system of all Qantas aircraft are fitted with hospital-grade HEPA filters, which remove 99.9% of all particles including viruses. Air inside the cabin is refreshed every few minutes, ensuring the highest possible quality of cabin air.
  • To reduce congestion on board, not all seats in Economy Class will be sold allowing more space for passengers.
  • No check-in will be required at the airport. Passengers will proceed straight through security and to the departure gate.
  • Prior to embarkation, each passenger will receive a personal Qantas Fly Well pack for the flight including: disposable mask, sanitiser and disinfectant wipes.
  • Additional sanitisers will be available on board throughout the duration of the flight.



Updated Booking Conditions

We have also revised our booking conditions to provide flexibility at this time. Should your Antarctica Flight not be able to depart due to government restrictions on travel, we will provide a full refund. Should you be unable to join the flight due to COVID-19 symptoms or an isolation requirement, you will be provided a credit for the value of the Antarctica Flight. In addition, your booking will be transferable to another person up to 24 hours prior to departure with an AU$100 service fee.
