White Desert Antarctica launch ‘Echo’
The White Desert is one of the first operators to build a luxury camp. Now it is also helping to transport scientists to their Antarctic research stations using their planes. Its latest projects, "Echo", came after "Whichaway" and "Wolf's Fang".
The company, White Desert Ltd, was established by polar explorer duo Patrick and Robyn Woodhead in 2005. Born out of the desire to allow people aside from scientists to explore Antarctica, the company has stood for 16 years and now employs about 80 people from 17 different nationalities. Winner of five World Travel Awards, as of 2021, the company is the first to pioneer commercial private jet services to the continent.
In the same year, the company signed up with the Glasgow Declaration and UK Net Zero Target to aim for the replacement of all Jet A-1 fuel uses to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), a type of biofuel that will reduce Greenhouse gas emissions, over the next 3-5 years.#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial #antartica #antarctica #penguins #vacation #luxury #luxurious
