I had a best day with True South Flights. Bridgette was super friendly and my pilot Elliot was very chatty and knowledgeable. One of the best service I have in Queenstown. Defiantly recommend them!

We took two trips with True South Flights. The service was amazing, helping us with a last minute booking, and giving us great advice on which days might be best for which trips. We did coach/cruise/fly for Milford Sound and the Franz Josef Glacier trip....More

Thanks Kimberley! The altitude isn't too different from a commercial airliner, since most large aircraft are pressurized to an cabin 'altitude' of 8000 to 10000 feet. We don't typically go above 8000ft ourselves. Cheers, Gareth

We had some trouble arranging because of the weather, but Elliot and the team couldn’t have been more helpful. The trip was magical, plane layout great for getting photos, pilot knew everything and made sure we sure all we could. Highly highly recommended

What an unbelievable and beautifully serene flight to the majestic Milford Sound. Captain Peter gave the perfect amount of commentary and allowed us time to take in the beautiful landscapes that NZ has to offer. Would definitely recommend True South Flights to everyone we know!

Very well organised. Wonderful friendly staff. True South contacted us to advise a date change due to expected bad weather on our booked day. Thanks for rescheduling as our flight was very smooth and the scenery breathtaking. We will always remember flying up Milford Sound...More
