Gentoo Airways is the proposed national carrier of the Federated States of Antarctica.
Gentoo Airways will be the third airline to serve all six continents (the first being Air Centrino and Skate Airways). Currently, only eight carriers in the world serve five continents: British Airways, Air France, Delta, Emirates, Korean Air, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, and South African Airways. International destinations include:
- Cape Town
- Hong Kong
- Los Angeles
- Mexico City
- New Delhi
- New York
- Punta Arenas
- Rio de Janeiro
- Sao Paulo
- St. Petersburg
Gentoo Airways will not serve any destinations in the Middle East.
The Gentoo Airways fleet will consist of five aircraft types.
Used for long inter-hemispheric flights, such as between Antarctica and Europe or North America. These flights can be anywhere from 18 to 26 hours long and a large aircraft providing maximum comfort as well as high fuel capacity is critical. The Airbus A380 is capable of carrying 853 passengers. However, Gentoo Airways will use first-class type seating in the entire aircraft. The upper passenger cabin will consist of sleeper cabins, similar to what is available on Amtrak trains. This will reduce passenger capacity to to around 450.
Boeing 737 and 767
Used for intra-hemispheric and trans-continental flights. This will be the most common aircraft type in the fleet.
A regional class aircraft for short flights.
These will be used for transportation to locations that do not have a landing strip or runway, such as Georgetown and Vladiyug. In some cases, such as Vladiyug and the Adelaide Islands, a runway will be away from the main settlement. Passengers will fly via regional aircraft to the runway and then transfer to a helicopter, which will fly them to a heliport at the destination.
Dreamliner Cargo Jet
Used for transporting cargo to destinations that are not practically reached by sea or land.
