From an easy booking process via email through to a breeze at checkin, the day trip was a delight - a day of enforced relaxation even in the freezing cold of the deep south. Boarded a Britten Norman Islander plane in Invercargill for the short hop to Stewart Island. The back seats of the plane were smaller than the rest... More

Wonderful place to visit, . Excellent transport, on time, quick and enjoyable. The islands were teeming with wide life. Great places to stay. You only need a couple of days. The sand flies are bad be warned.

Just a 15 odd minute flight with up to nine others and you are on the Island, great views between Invercargill and Stewart Island.

Our introduction to Stewart Island Flights was jump on the scales when we checked in! I am not a fan of small planes and it is not the smoothest of flights, however I am sure it is preferable to a rough ferry ride. My son sat next to the pilot and had great views, I sat next to a local... More

A very professional and friendly operation. The whole operation is characterised by a friendly competence, and is a great service for Islanders and visitors alike. An easy, safe and enjoyable way to travel to and from Stewart Island.

Stewart Island Flights run a pretty effecient operation. My wife and I did the Stewart Island Special which was definately worth it. Every seat is a window seat so you don't miss much. If you get to sit next to the pilot so much the better.

I have flown them before - even onto a tiny beach on the west coast of Stewart Island. The pilots are very helpful, informative & professional. Great way to cross the straight with minimum delay.

Short and sweet, forget getting seasick on the ferry. The flight is definitely a good option, especially if you don't have much time on the Island.

I have flown multiple times with Stewart island flights and their customer service is getting progressively worse. From telling me my flight was cancelled cause the "plane is broken" to extreme rudeness when checking in. Overall it's an ok company to fly with, the younger guys (pilots) are friendly and professional. They are the only reason I gave this review... More
