Imagine to fly into the night and bear witness to one of the world’s most indescribable natural phenomena. Aurora hunter and astrophysicist Dr Ian Griffin and a team of expert astronomers have helped put these trips together so that you can enjoy a private Qantas Boeing 787-9 as you head over the Southern Ocean toward Antarctica. As you travel far away from the light pollution you will drift high above the clouds and weather systems to see a magical and unforgettable display with an uninterrupted view of the Southern Lights – where Aurora Australis is brightest.
Departing from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane you will see constellations, stars and planets as you have never witnessed them before. Passengers will enjoy Qantas inflight service in both business and economy classes. Expert astronomers will provide information on route about how an aurora is created, as well as pointing out their favourite night sky objects. They will instruct passengers on how to photograph an aurora and we will have a photographer onboard to assist on how best to use your cameras. These flights will be departing between April and June 2021.
