The ACJ on ice: an historic flight ti the Antarctic

An Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ) made history by performing the first ever passenger flight linking the Australian and Antarctic continents, landing on a new ice runway located some 70 km. from the Casey research station.

This milestone round-trip journey from Australia´s southern city of Hobart was performed overnight, with a flight time in each direction of approximately 4.5 hours. The A319 landed on the 4,000-metre-long Wilkins Runway - a blue-ice landing strip topped with compacted snow - where it spent several hours before departing for the return leg to Hobart.
