Get above the noise
FOR revellers looking for a slightly more chilled way to bring in the new year, an exclusive flight across Antarctica might be just the ticket.
Antarctica Flights will charter a Qantas 747 jet for a flight across the frosty continent later this year, departing from Melbourne International Airport on 31 December and returning the next morning. Far away from the sounds of traditional fireworks and the urban festive throng, passengers on this flight will be among the first on Earth to celebrate the new year in broad daylight while overlooking the vast beauty of Antarctica’s landscape.
Economy class seats are available from $1,119 per person, while the most luxurious experience on board, Ice class seating, provides uninterrupted views and can be purchased for $7,999. Ice Class passengers will also enjoy extra benets including champagne and a complimentary gift pack.
