ANTARCTIC SIGHTSEEING


Hey IFC,

I saw a really cool news and I thought to share it. Qantas is starting antarctic sightseeing flights to Antarctic with their B787.


MY OPINION

I think these flights will be a great way to increase tourism. Australia is already a holiday paradise but with addition of these flights, they can really have a boom in tourism.

Antarctic is a great place for sightseeing, however not everyone can afford to plan a trip there. By these flight, even a middle class man can have a look at one of the wonders of the nature (hoping fares will be nominal).

I am hoping these flights would start soon. Let me know your opinions.

Cheers !

True ! Flying with a B747 for these flight would be just mind blowing. But nothing can be done now. Let’s enjoy these flights :)

Personally, I would go on that if I were to live in australia or ever happen to travel there. But I think it will not pay up to fly these since you don’t carry cargo and just passengers.

Wow that’s crazy! I know one of Icelandair’s B757s is used to take people there from Chile or one of the South American countries. Cool that’s it’s for sight seeing!

is it possible if the planes go too north or too south it will be too cold to fly

I actually have no idea 😂
I know with the Iceair flight they don’t refuel in Antarctica, they fill up in Chile and then use that fuel all the way back. So they only have a couple of attempts to land on the ice runway before they have to return
