Luxury Trip on Icelandair’s Jet

Vala Hafstað

It's a Boeing 757, but there will only be room for 75 passengers. For the price of USD 98,940, you could purchase a trip around the world on board Icelandair’s TF-FIS Boeing 757, mbl.is reports, quoting the Norwegian webside hangar.no.  

The 24-day trip is part of National Geographic Expeditions and begins in Washington, D.C. on December 28. Destinations include 15 UNESCO World Heritage sites, from Easter Island to the Great Barrier Reef.

National Geographic experts will offer lectures to participants about their research in marine biology, anthropology, archaeology, and paleontology, and insight will be gained into local cultures.

World-class accommodations are promised, including two National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World - in the hills of Bhutan and on the rim of Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater.

Icelandair has installed 75 leather seats on board the aircraft, which normally seats 233. For further information on the itinerary, visit nationalgeographic.com.
