Pioneering luxury in Antarctica
Together with White Desert we offer this extremely rare opportunity to land your aircraft on the first and only private jet runway in Antarctica. A carbon-neutral experience that is as luxurious as it is adventurous. Avcon Jet is the first and only operator currently performing flight to the Earth's southmost continent.
PIONEERING LUXURY IN ANTARCTICA
Founded by genuine polar explorers, White Desert is the only company in the world to offer luxury travel to Antarctica. A carbon-neutral experience that is as luxurious as it is adventurous. The award-winning "Whichaway Camp" accomodates a maximum of 12 guests and you can choose the length of time you wish to spend in Antarctica. Once the domain of only scientists and the polar explorer, the 7th continent is now accessible.
Avcon Jet was the private jet partner of White Desert right from the start, and still is. We are the first and only operator currently performing flight to the Earth's southmost continent. Extensive preparations went into this most impressive and remote operation.

THE FLIGHT TO ANTARCTICA
Starting from Cape Town/South Africa it will take approximately five hours (4.200 km) to Wolf's Fang Runway.
You will pass from the African night sky into 24 hours of continous sunshine. The Wolf's Fan runway is sited on glacial blue ice which, when properly treated, is entirely suitable.
Extensive preparations went into this most impressive and remote operation before our first flight to Antarctica in 2019.
To learn more about the preparations, read an exclusive interview of our Head of Trainings Department and Captain on Gulfstream G550 with more than 6.500 flight hours, Jürgen KÖRBER.
WHICHAWAY CAMP: LUXURIOUS AND TOTALLY UNIQUE
Whichaway is White Deserts flagship camp and sits on the shores of one of the freshwater lakes of the ice-free Schirmacher Oasis.
White Desert designed 6 heated ‘polar pods’ with cutting-edge exteriors and old-world interiors that conjure up images of Antarctica’s rich heritage of exploration. Guests really love to sit back and chat in the communal lounge, library and dining area which is a wonderful space to relax with amazing views.
Savour gourmet meals prepared by your private chef, enjoy a sauna with view of the glacier, sip cocktails by the fire, and cross off bucket list adventures like visiting the South Pole, ice climbing, hiking over ice waves, and coming face-to-face with 28,000 emperor penguins.
