SPECIALIST coach operator Australian
Pacific Touring is marking the 75th anniversary of the company with the
introduction of Antarctica to its programme.

It
is featuring 12-hour sightseeing flights on a Qantas 747 aircraft with a
selection of seating options.

First
class travel leads in at £1480 with economy starting at £335.

The
non-stop flights depart Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne between December 31 and
February 9. 

Meanwhile,
the Australasia specialist has expanded its tailor-made Freedom concept, which
allows passengers the option to start or stop a coach tour anywhere on route.

The
flagship Freedom of Choice Touring has been extended to include Fraser Island,
Cairns, The Kimberleys, Alice Springs and Darwin in Australia and the Bay of
Islands and Rotorua in New Zealand.

“Research has shown that such a level of freedom
is primarily what holidaymakers want,” said APT general manager Gary
Bartelings.
