In 2017 on Australia Day, a group of 22 Have a Go News readers joined a chartered Qantas flight to embark on the day trip of a lifetime.
“It was one of the most amazing day trips I have ever experienced,” said Have a Go News editor Jennifer Merigan.
“It’s nothing like a normal flight and the excitement that builds when the ice comes into view, is just something to behold.
“The crew, the service and the information throughout the flight makes it a trip of a lifetime.
“I also took my 82 year old Dad with me and he was overawed with the experience,” she said.
This amazing trip is scheduled for Australia Day 2019 and Have a Go News will again be putting together a group.
Antarctica is the world’s last great wilderness and we invite readers to join us for this day to visit Antarctica.
The excitement throughout the plane is unbelievable, it is not like a normal flight.
Everyone is present for the same reason – to fulfill that bucket list dream of exploring an unchartered continent.
Australia is the only country from which a sightseeing flight can be taken over the frozen south.
Every departure is different – no two flights are the same…
All seating classes will experience spectacular views over the ice and an unforgettable round trip.
The trip provides the complete Antarctic experience – Antarctic experts on board, live crosses to the Australian stations, videos and other informative activities.
Passengers will receive a comprehensive information kit, two full service Qantas meals plus in-flight snacks and full bar service – including champagne, wine, beer, spirits, soft drink and usage of the state of the art entertainment system.
The crew provide wonderful service, the atmosphere on board is nothing like you have experienced and passengers experience four full hours flying across the continent.
It really is an unbelievable experience.
The Have a Go News tour manager on board takes photographs of the views and our group, providing an exclusive pictorial record. Our passengers also receive a special Australia Day goody bag and name badge.
