How does the seat swap work?

The helpful Qantas staff onboard will be facilitating the seat swap and instructing on the cleaning regime required during the process.

Weather is not generally the issue, cloud cover is our biggest challenge. We have 20 different routes we can follow and the Captain will choose the route with they anticipate will provide the best viewing on the day. It is noted that weather conditions can change quickly in Antarctica, even mid-flight. For our South Pole flight, we will be at the mercy of the conditions on the day. This route is focused on the history and scale of the epic journeys of Amundsen and Scott.

  • To reduce congestion on board, not all seats in Economy Class will be utilised. This will allow more space for passengers.

Itinerary

Day 1ANTARTICA DAY FLIGHT (IFM)

Depending on your departure city, you will travel between 9,500 km round trip. A team of Antarctica Experts from Chimu Adventures will be on board to explain the continent’s landscapes and history as you fly over Antarctica. Over the years, Chimu have assembled one of Australia’s largest and most experienced Antarctica teams. They utilise the experience and knowledge of thier staff to provide a fantastic experience for clients.

Generally it takes around three hours of flying time south of Australia before you start to see scattered icebergs and shortly after you normally reach the continent itself, where, weather permitting, you’ll get to take in the dramatic mountains, glaciers and frozen landscapes of Antarctica. You will spend 3 – 4 hours flying over the Antarctic continent and weather permitting you’ll hope to reduce the flying altitude to approximately 20,000 feet to give improved viewing of some areas.

On each departure date the team carefully consider a number of factors, including weather, cloud cover and ice conditions to help provide you the best viewing experience on the day. Working with Qantas, we have 20 different potential flight paths to choose from, all of which have a variety of interesting features to see.
