Are There Flights To Antarctica?
Yes, you can fly to Antarctica! Logistically speaking, the 7th Continent is one of the most isolated places on Earth, and specialized resources are needed to operate in the region.
We carefully and thoughtfully planned out all our expeditions. Permits are secured in advance, and aircraft and ships with crews and staff have to be brought to the region for the short Antarctic travel season during the Austral summer.
Antarctica flights were not very common in travel before the air-cruise model. However, Antarctica21 pioneered the Antarctica fly-cruise program in 2003. As of March 2020, we’ve operated 225 Antarctic flights over the Drake Passage, the body of water that separates South America and Antarctica. DAP Airlines is our official Antarctica flight partner with over 25 years of experience flying to Antarctica and Patagonia.
