When will they set up an Airport close to Pole, to facilitate air travel in the South?
Antarctica is pretty much a forbidden zone. The Antarctic Treaty was signed in Washington on 1 December 1959 by the twelve countries whose scientists had been active in and around Antarctica during the International Geophysical Year (IGY) of 1957-58. It entered into force in 1961 and has since been acceded to by many other nations.

The map to the left shows Antarctica as a white uneven circle around the Flat Earth model. The Gleason Map (1892) published in Buffalo NY. To download click HERE for the Map.
What Admiral Byrd said about Antarctica
TV interview 1954 Q&A
Q- Is there any unexplored land on this Earth, that might appeal to adventurous young Americans?
A- Yes, there is. Not at the North pole......
But strangely enough, there is left in the world today an area as big as the United States, that's never been seen by human beings, and that's beyond the pole, on the other side of the South pole, from middle America. And I think it's quite astonishing .....
Arctic North Pole: The animals include the reindeer, polar bear, Arctic fox, narwhal, walrus, seal, ox,moose, orca, and snowy owl. The Alaskan malamute is a powerful sled dog from Alaska. This small, white fox lives farther north than any other land animal. This white hare lives in the Arctic and has huge hindfeet. Approximately 1,700 species of plants live on the Arctic tundra, including flowering plants, dwarf shrubs, herbs, grasses, mosses, and lichens. The tundra is characterized by permafrost, a layer of soil and partially decomposed organic matter that is frozen year-round.
Antarctic South Pole: No terrestrial mammals. No plants or trees.
