Spectacular Scenery!
Jul 2021
Our pilot Jim was incredible. The flight arranged by Blanket Bay saw the aircraft collect us from Glenorchy and take us on the most incredible scenic flight across the Dartford ranges, over to the West Coast and into Milford Sound.

The flight was so smooth and Jim pointed out points of interest along the flight - the landing in Milford was spectacular. We also enjoyed the boat cruise across the sound sighting, dolphins, penguins and seals!

Our return flight took us up and over Milford, down over the Milford track, across Green Valley and back into Glenorchy. Jim was both knowledgeable about the region, but importantly a great pilot that made us all feel totally relaxed in his care.

Doing pickups from Blanket Bay are always such a pleasure. We are Glenorchy Air after all ;) There is just no better way to see the Dart River valley... and why rush straight into Milford and back when you can wander around the glaciers and poke around the Fiordland National Park on your way? I'm so glad you had a good time and that we had such wonderful weather for the trip. Jim

Absolutely Incredible
Jul 2021
I had the most incredible experience with Glenorchy Air, the staff were incredible, they knew I was a bit nervous and were really good at reassuring me. I had nothing to be nervous about, the flight to Milford Sound was amazing. The scenery was stunning and Megan are captain was amazing. We had an incredible cruise in Milford and saw heaps of dolphins which really topped it off. I couldn't recommend this experience more, seamless and easy, excellent customer service from both Glenorchy Air and Southern Discoveries. Thanks so much team!

Kia Ora Hope, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for choosing to fly with Glenorchy Air. What a lovely experience you had seeing dolphins from your cruise. It is thought that there are more than 60 bottlenose dolphins living in the area, but they don't always come out to play so its a special moment when they do. Hope you had a wonderful time in Queenstown All the best. The Glenorchy Air Team

Brilliant trip with Glenorchy air on Sunday. We did fly/cruise/fly to Milford Sound. We flew in the Cessna Grand Caravan which was a very comfortable flight. Our pilot Megan was great and gave loads of information about where we were flying. Overall a brilliant experience.

Most amazing experience!
Jul 2021
This was one of the best trips I have done in New Zealand. The team were so helpful with my booking.
Couldn't recommend enough. From start til finish it was amazing! The flight was incredible over the mountains and glaciers and then into Milford. The pilot gives you a full commentary on the flight which was great.
Would absolutely book this trip again and would highly recommend to do this if your in Queenstown!

Exceptional Milford Sound trip from Queenstown.
Jun 2021 • Couples
Fantastic flight to and fro' Milford Sound with James. He gave us a knowledgeable detailed commentary with lots of extra interest information. We Included a picnic lunch deal (generous) as well and this was provided on the Southern Discovery cruise which also had a great commentary. A superb experience.

Hi Jen Thanks so much for your support and for your review. I have spent the last 9 years flying around Fiordland and I still learn new information about the incredible scenery that we fly over. We don't follow a script. All of our pilots and staff have their own commentary which is always being developed in order to add our own personal touch to our passengers' experience. I'm pleased to see that you also had a great time on the cruise with southern discoveries, I will be sure to pass your good feedback on. We hope to see you again on a future trip to Queenstown Regards James Stokes MD - Glenorchy Air
