Antarctic and Southern Ocean stories

Antarctic flights take off

Want to take a sightseeing flight over Antarctica? Well, very soon you will be able to do that from Hobart airport. The first scenic flight over the icy continent to leave from Hobart airport will take off in November. Antarctic Flights offers full day round trips over the Southern Continent with at least four hours hovering above the Antarctic Treaty area. The flight paths are chosen according to weather conditions, and to maximise the viewing potential of the spectacular scenery over dramatic ice formations and mountain ranges. In the past, flights have departed from mainland airports. However, when the polar plane takes off from Hobart on November 25, it will represent another chapter in the growing status of Tasmania’s capital city as the gateway to the icy continent.
