New Delhi: Antarctica is the place which is always covered with snow. Where common man cannot reach easily. An aviation company has created history on the same icy continent. The Airbus A-340 has landed in Antarctica. This had never happened before today. If there is no airport far away, then where and how did the landing of this plane take place? The landing of the plane in Antarctica is a historical event.
Where nothing is visible except ice in Antarctica and nothing like this had happened on this continent before today. Airbus A-340 with a capacity of 290 people landed on an icy runway. Hi Fly, an aviation company working in the field of tourism, has made this possible.
History was made when Hi Fly 801 passenger plane made a successful landing in Antarctica. This Hi Fly 801 flight took off from Cape Town, South Africa on 2 November. After a five-hour journey, this plane reached Antarctica.
Let us tell you that ice is frozen in Antarctica for most of the year. In such a situation, getting the runway ready here was also a big task. Earlier, between 2019 and 2020, several trials were conducted for this high-ply flight. Of course, there is no airport in Antarctica, but many air strips and runways have been built here.
