Experience the Northern Lights Like Never Before on Board a Private 737 Jet

The exclusive Aurora | 360 Experience, Canada’s Ultimate Aurora Viewing Tour, is back!

WHITEHORSE, YT, Sep. 27, 2019

Today, Consulta Meta I.M. is officially announcing the return of the Aurora | 360 Experience, the most exciting way to see the Northern Lights. Building on the success of the inaugural launch in February, 2019, this exclusive opportunity offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy the Northern Lights by private-chartered 737 jet for unrivaled, eye level Northern Lights viewing.  It’s the only flight in the world to take off within the Aurora Oval, offering the chance for Aurora viewing shortly after take-off.

The Aurora | 360 Experience is January 23rd to 27th, 2020, with the flight scheduled to take-off either January 24th or 25th (the flight date will be chosen a few days earlier based on Aurora forecasts). The five-day package not only offers serious bragging rights, but will provide high altitude views of the spectacular Northern Lights in the Yukon sky combined with exceptional culinary components, industry leading guest speakers, cultural events, optional day tours and more. With only 70 seats available, the Aurora | 360 Experience gives passengers the unique opportunity to fly above the clouds, and witness the Aurora Borealis closer than ever before.  As part of the package the passengers get to learn more about the Aurora Borealis from renown guest speakers: Emmy award winner David Levy (Three Minutes to Impact), William Murtagh (White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as the assistant director for Space Weather, Energy, and Environment Division), and Pierre Paquette (Astronomy Ambassador of The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada).

“The Aurora Borealis is truly one of the world’s greatest celestial phenomenons, and we are proud to once again offer this unparalleled experience,” says Anthony Gucciardo, President of Consulta Meta I.M. “It’s a bucketlist worthy moment you’ll never forget. We can’t wait to get airborne!”

“The Northern Lights are one of the Yukon’s biggest attractions. We saw great success last year with the inaugural launch, so we’re understandably thrilled it’s being reintroduced and made even better,” says Robin Anderson, Global Marketing Manager at Tourism Yukon. “Last February passengers saw the Aurora Borealis just fourteen minutes after take-off and the lights continued for 3 straight hours. We hope they break that record this January!”

Once on board, guests can relax and enjoy the incredible views while sipping a celebratory gin from Yukon’s award-winning Yukon Brewing company while award winning Canadian photographer Mark Kelly will assist with helping passengers to take their own Aurora photos.

The Aurora | 360 Experience includes:

  • the Aurora | 360 flight, 4 nights accommodation in Whitehorse, 4 delicious breakfasts, 3 distinctive Yukon-flare dinners, scientific, natural, historical and cultural knowledge of the Territory, entry to Takhini Hot Springs, all ground transportation and more for just $3,883.95 CAD (taxes included).

FLIGHT OF A LIFETIME

Could it be that the most memorable plane ride you ever take is a flight to nowhere?
BY JENNIFER BAIN

“IT’S WHEELS UP AT 11:45 P.M. at Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport. We have a three-hour flight that will take us over a large swath of the Yukon and into the Northwest Territories. Instead of a destination, though, we have a mission aboard this Boeing 737. We will spend an evening in the sky, making a ceremonial crossing of the Arctic Circle while searching for nature’s most dazzling light show.
We are aurora hunters on the flight of a lifetime.”
