Qantas is the national airline of Australia and one of the biggest flight operators in the whole world. While you might be familiar with this airline due to its international flights into Sydney, they also offer up one of the most unique travel options on Earth: mystery flights.
What Are They?
Ever since the 1990s, Qantas has offered up mystery flights periodically as a fascinating trip option for travelers. With flights leaving from Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, travelers are packed into an airplane with no idea of where they are going for a national day trip.
Flown on B737 aircraft and featuring a ticket that includes transportation, activities upon arrival, and breakfast in a pre-flight lounge, this is a unique and interesting way to spend a day in Australia.
The destination is never known before you leave, but Qantas does provide you with a pre-flight email telling you what the weather will be like and what sort of clothes you need to pack for your activities.
Smaller towns and cities, both beachside, in the country’s interior, and near national landmarks have been some of the destinations which have been flown to. What’s clear, however, is that this adventure, with a starting price of around $550, is for those of us who are open to a little bit of uncertainty!
