History[]

A group of penguins from Snowzerland, started the airline as Blizzard Air Service in 1999. The company was A cargo airline at the time, delivering dish, supplies and mail to many communities around Antarctica. In 2000, the airline became a passenger charter airline, and based operations out of South Pole Airstrip. The airline suffered with many financial blows in the spring of 2001, as the airline closed many regular routes down, due to low loadfacators. In 2005, the airline became Snowball Airlines, and continued it's charter service. In 2010, the airline merged with Zurich Air, and became a commercial airline. The company retired most of its old fleet, and started re-painting the aircraft of Zurich Air into Snowball Airlines livery. A few months ago, 60% of the entire fleet is out of service, since the aircraft are going under maintenance and re-painting. Currently, only 45% is now out of service, due to good business.
