New Atlantis not cleared for landing in Starfield – What to do?

If you are doing the main mission, “One Small Step” in Starfield, then after the first planet you visit, the second planet you will be tasked to visit is called Jemison. On Jemison, you are supposed to go to New Atlantis. Now if you have been doing the main mission continuously without any pauses, then you shouldn’t have any issues. But if you are someone like me, who has taken some time to explore other planets before heading over to New Atlantis, you might get a pop-up on your screen saying “New Atlantis area not cleared for landing” when to try to land on New Atlantis. This guide will show you how to clear the area and land on New Atlantis:

How to Clear New Atlantis for Landing in Starfield

The thing is, if you have taken some time before visiting New Atlantis, you might face this issue, as there is a huge chance that you are trying to land on New Atlantis at the wrong time.

You see, every guarded planet will have Patrol Ships circling around them. Those ships will scan your ship and give you a clearance. After that, you will be able to successfully make a landing. While on your way to New Atlantis, if you notice that there are no ships patrolling the planet, then you won’t be able to land.
Landing on New Atlantis - Starfield

If you are getting the “Area not clear for landing” message on New Atlantis, then:

  1. Just get up from your seat and go to the back of your ship.
  2. There, you will notice a Jump Seat.

  3. Sit on one of the Jump Seats and select “Wait”.
  4. Select 1 hour, and once you are done, go back and see if the patrol ships are back.
  5. If they are, then they will clear you, and you will be able to land on New Atlantis.

That is all there is to it. You can use this method for every planet where you get this message while landing. The Jump Seat is nothing but a time-skip mechanic. You are just skipping time until someone arrives to scan your ship and clear you.
