Description: Air Milford is a family owned and operated business, specialising in...
Air Milford is a family owned and operated business, 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 focussed 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, Mt 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 waited for the right weather conditions for this and took the advice from Air Milford, who were incredibly helpful in booking this trip. Some Tripadvisor reviews stated that some airlines had got them out to the fiord, but hadn't returned them, having to make the arduous 4 hour trip by road. Not the case here, due to sound advice,...

After not enjoying our bus trip it Milford, we decided to fly home, our pilot Hank flew straight from queenstown to come get us and took us on a personal tour on the way, the whole flight including take off and landing was extremely smooth and the family owned company really catered for our need, thanks guys

My partner and I really enjoyed our scenic flight to Milford Sound. Our pilot Alex was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The views were stunning and Air Milford was helpful in rescheduling our planned flight to fit our travel schedule when poor weather prevented our initial scheduled flight. We skipped the cruise in favor of a short trail walk, but the... More
