Qantas 787 Dreamliner
We take to the skies over Antarctica aboard the 787 Dreamliner. We are afforded optimal views to the vast white wilderness thanks to windows 65% larger than any other vessel of its size. Its lower cabin altitude mitigates the discomfort passengers may sometimes experience during and after a long flight. USB charging ports and personal HD touchscreens are also available for all seating classes, for those moments in between iceberg spotting.

What To Expect
The flight provides a full day of Antarctic experience. Our flight from Australia ranges between 9,500 – 10,500 kms round trip (approximately 12.5 hours) depending on your departure city. Expert Antarctic expeditioners are onboard to talk on the polar environment and its history while video screenings depict life on the ground.
Approximately three hours south of Australia, passengers will usually see the first scattered ice followed by dozens of icebergs and ice floes. We then cross the South Magnetic Pole where you will start to view the rugged mountainous topography of the Antarctic mainland.
