New Mexico’s Spaceport America with Bon Voyage
Experience the Spaceport America project in New Mexico – the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport which will house Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic’s spacecraft when flights begin sometime after the end of 2012 – with US specialist, Bon Voyage.
The tour is available for the first time from 13 May and gives guests the opportunity to view the 18,000-acre site and take in the vertical launch area and the Spaceport America infrastructure currently under construction including the airfield, operations centre, fuel storage complex and the amazing terminal hanger facility.
The above guided excursion is part of a new nine-night New Mexico fly-drive holiday from Bon Voyage which combines 21st century space technology with the artwork and culture of the Native Americans.
Further highlights of the trip which begins in Albuquerque, include the state’s capital of Santa Fe, the Cimmarron Canyon State Park, the authentic Route 66 roadside town of Tucumcari, the breathtaking Carlsbard Caverns, the Cliff Dwellers’ homes at Mesa Verde National Park and Roswell, where a UFO allegedly landed in 1947 with several aliens aboard!
Prices start from £1575 per person (twin share) in May inclusive of return Heathrow, Manchester or Glasgow flights, car hire, nine nights’ four-star hotel accommodation, excursion – by coach – to Spaceport and a personalised road book.
Spaceport is a secured site and admittance to the general public is only available during the current pre-operational phase on an exclusive official coach trip from the New Mexico town of Truth and Consequences.
