In Focus COLD CALL The stark landscape of Antarctica provided a stunning backdrop as a Boeing 737-700 touched down on a runway of blue ice at the Troll Research Station late last year, marking the first time a commercial 737 flight landed on Earth’s southernmost continent. The flight, operated by PrivatAir, a Geneva-based business aviation and private scheduled service operator, carried Norwegian Polar Institute staff, PrivatAir management and a flight crew to the research post, which is dedicated to environmental and climate monitoring, scientific research and mapping. PrivatAir aims to make this a regularly scheduled flight in 2013. PHOTO: NORWEGIAN POLAR INSTITUTE 38 BOEING FRONTIERS / FEBRUARY 2013
