In 1991, many penguins were using old, outdated ships, to haul freight across the country, which had delays, and took days, but a penguin, came up with an idea to create the Antarctic's first cargo airline. Using retired aircraft from many other airlines, the airline made many freight deliveries to cities, which then used incorporated fields, known as Grassruns, The hub of the airline was proposed to be at Highlaw Island, But, due to some takeoff overruns at the airport with the bigger aircraft, the company moved to another area, into South Pole City, the airline made a small hub at the airstrip in South Pole City, before the small airstrip was closed in 2007. The hub was moved to another airport, South Pole City-Metropolitan International Airport. The airline operated a large base at the airport, making it the second largest carrier at the airport.
