Soviet era Aeroflot! Ok, I know SU was state run and the military planes were painted in SU colors, but they still said Aeroflot on the side!

SU didn't have scheduled flights to Antarctica. Their airplanes were not military either (sorry if I'm missing sarcasm  ).

This thread would have been much shorter and less repetitive (same question is asked quite regularly) if the question had read: What airlines fly to North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia?

No cometcial airline service there...yet.


PA did! And also Soviet era Aeroflot! Ok, I know SU was state run and the military planes were painted in SU colors, but they still said Aeroflot on the side!

Pan Am had a few charter flights for the U.S. government. There's never been any commercial service by any airline to Antarctica, and I doubt there ever will be.

Quoting bmacleod (Reply 38):
If not for SA in Star, JNB would be added as well..

I doubt AC would have ever started service to JNB, regardless of the Star Alliance. Market is just too small and costs of operating such a thin longhaul route are too high. And little premium traffic. The state of the South African economy now would make it even more unlikely. For AC it makes more sense to use alliance partners via Europe (not SAA via the U.S. as AC gets very little revenue when they only carry a passenger on the shorthaul transborder sectors).
