Silversea is offering fly-cruise trips to Antarctica in 2021 onboard a private jet.
The line said its Antarctica Bridge programme, which opens for sale on 10 December, features 12 voyages by Silver Explorer and sees guests fly over the Drake Passage “in business-class comfort”.
Departing from December 2021, fares lead in from $17,500pp based on two adults sharing.
Passengers will take direct flights from Punta Arenas in Chile to King George Island in Antarctica onboard an aircraft exclusively chartered for Silversea customers and adapted to land on King George Island.
The journey will take just two hours each way, meaning guests will avoid approximately four days at sea on the return journey.
An in-flight entertainment programme will include Zodiac and International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators briefings, tailored to Antarctic expeditions, to prepare guests for their experience.
