We all knew it was just a matter of time. With the rate of growth of the internet and the availability of information, the clock is ticking and the ultimate demise of the cloak of secrecy that has shrouded some of the greatest mysteries of all time is fast approaching. The rate of ice melting in the Arctic has some experts predicting an ice free Arctic and shipping trade routes through the Arctic Circle by the end of the next decade.
But until then, you can check out for yourself what there is to see at the "north pole" with the first "true" polar flight of Richard Branson's Virgin Air. This flight will leave Heathrow Airport and fly straight to Fiji via a direct polar route that shaves 6 hours off of the otherwise 24 hour flight. So be the first to book a polar flight on Virgin Air and let us know what you see as you cross over the top of the world. Just be sure to book a window seat!
