Overview

Air Milford is a family owned and operated business based in Queenstown, New Zealand, specialising in personalised sightseeing excursions for visitors who want to experience the very best tours of Queenstown and the South Island of New Zealand. Air Milford purposefully remains a mid-size New Zealand tourism business. This allows the company to stay committed and focused on offering its guests exclusive, niche sightseeing tours of the Queenstown, Fiordland and South Island regions. Air Milford is a tour company - not a transport company. The Air Milford team have an intimate knowledge of the scenic wonders of Fiordland, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Mount Cook and the Queenstown region. The 'hands on' tours take in magnificent fiords, New Zealand native forests and glaciers. Guests will be introduced to New Zealand's stunning native birds, seals, penguins and dolphins. Our modern aircraft are meticulously maintained and we are proud to have achieved one of the Civil Aviation Authority's (CAA) highest audit ratings for operations and safety.

We booked a day cruse and opted to upgrade and fly back. A stunning view and fabulous flight were well worth the flight. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the views and the experience.

Truly spectacular scenery, but what makes me rate this as 5* was the pilot, the service and the aircraft fleet. Out pilot Tom was not only professional and knowledgeable, but he also made everyone feel at ease. I am not afraid of flying myself (and...More

Exhilarating! One of the best experiences ever. The flight was faultless, the scenery awe-inspiring - indescribable. Unfortunately, the cruise paled in comparison.
