NZL - Antartica Charter Flights Re-starting

Tue Sep 04, 2012 6:09 am

Commercial sight-seeing fligths to Antarctica will operate from New Zealand for the first time since the Mt Erebus crash more than 30 years ago.

Flights to the cold, remote destination from Auckland stopped when a the Air New Zealand Flight 901 crashed on November 28, 1979, killing all 237 passengers and 20 crew on board.

Thirty-three years later, Antarctica Sightseeing Flights will introduce one flight on February 3 next year, using a Boeing 747-400ER aircraft chartered from Qantas.
