40 Years Connecting Patagonia.
DAP’s history takes us back to the early ‘80s when Mr. Domingo Andrés Pivcevic –son of settlers who arrived in Magallanes in 1900- decided to purchase an airplane to cover his needs of transporting goods, due to the scarce land or air connections that existed in Magallanes at the time.
In the late ‘80s the company grew, incorporating itself to the touristic boom that these beautiful lands at the end of the world were experiencing, with the creation of travel agency DAP Antártica (1989), tour operator whose mission is to offer an unforgettable adventure and top-level service to its clients.
In February of that same year, DAP achieved its first flight to the White Continent, building with time a route that has gained more and more relevancy, with transport and logistic support for a number of scientific missions from all over the world, as well as exclusive tour programs in King George Island, Antarctica.
In 2017 Betanzos ship is incorporated into the fleet, a versatile vessel that multiplies DAP’s logistic capabilities at the southern end of the world, to give solution to the complex needs of scientific missions, as well as making the company’s activities in Antarctica more and more self-sustained.
With strong roots in Magallanes, and a staff of experienced pilots and highly trained technical personnel, prepared to operate a fleet of airplanes and helicopters carefully chosen to fly in the highest standards of safety and efficiency, DAP continues to build its history, flight after flight.
