Viking Air Travel Services

Should you wish to book your airfares through Viking Cruises, please contact our reservation team. Alternatively, you are welcome to make you own air arrangements.


  • Included Flights and Flight Credits will be booked by Viking and with Viking’s choice of airline from major gateway cities in Australia and New Zealand. Should the applicable airfare be higher than the value of the Included Flights or Flight Credit, guests are required to pay the difference. Any unused portion of the Included Flights or Flight Credit is forfeited and cannot be transferred towards any other portion of the booking or any other person. Flights are subject to availability. Flight offers only valid if booked in conjunction with a selected Viking cruise.
  • For bookings with an air component, a non-refundable deposit advised at time of booking is required to secure a confirmed reservation within 3 days of booking otherwise the reservation may automatically cancel.
  • A 72-hour air schedule notification will be sent for review before we proceed with ticketing. Any changes requested after the 72-hour air schedule notification are subject to a fee of AU$50.00 per person in addition to any change fee the airline charges. Guests who make bookings more than 10 months prior to the departure date are permitted to make one complimentary change once the 72-hour air schedule notification is received. Guest information form is to be completed before the flights are scheduled.
