Inaugural Antarctic passenger flight

14 January 2008

The first of a series of regular passenger flight to Antarctica took place on Friday, establishing the first regular service between Australia and the white continent.

A blue ice runway was built at a cost of $41 million, although there is no indication of how long it will last or how it was decided this would be cost effective. The wire service says this feat of engineering will bring scientists and other Australian Antarctic Division staff – but not tourists – to Antarctica on a weekly basis in the warmer months between October and March.
