Evening flight from Newcastle 9th March 2018

Price from £220 per person*
Departs 9th March 2018

Enjoy a wonderful journey through a star-studded sky, distant galaxies & the Milky Way and hear about folklore legends in a quest to see one of the most spectacular natural phenomena known to man . . . The Northern Lights.

Our guest astronomers will guide you on your voyage of exploration and discovery through the crystal-clear winter sky and we hope to see nature’s very own spectacular light show from the aircraft as we take up our holding pattern north of the Shetland Isles.

Please note: a passport is not obligatory for this flight, although you and each member of your party will require some form of personal identification which includes a photograph of yourself (e.g. a driving licence or passport).

Regrettably Omega Holidays cannot be held responsible for the non-appearance of Pete Lawrence or any of the other named astronomers and no refunds will be given in this event.

Although at this time no changes are expected, we reserve the right to amend any of the flight times or departure dates, if required.

Important note: the Northern Lights are natural phenomena which cannot be guaranteed to occur during our flight, although they have been visible on many previous outings. Our guest astronomer advises at least an 80% chance of a sighting
We ask you to gather before the flight for an interesting illustrated, 60 minute presentation about the night sky and the Northern Lights by our guest astronomers. After this, we will board our aircraft for our flight in search of the Northern Lights.

The flight will last for about 3 hours. We will head northwards, as directly as possible, usually over Aberdeen and the Shetland Isles to a point in the North Atlantic between the UK and Icelandic airspace.

During the flight, the cabin lights will be dimmed* for you to watch the Northern Lights display* and passengers will be required to rotate seats so that everyone will have a window seat at various times throughout the flight. Our astronomers will also be on board, guiding you through a star-studded sky, so rarely seen through the polluted skies of Britain. If the conditions are right, it promises to be an unforgettable sight for all.

*Special notes –

The dimming of lights may mean an almost total black out and a very dark cabin. Cabin and aircraft navigation light intensity is at the sole discretion of the captain.

In order to give all passengers an equal opportunity to see the lights, please advise us when booking if you or any of your guests have a disability which will preclude swapping seats easily. Suitable seats in such instances are available, but are limited in number
