Tick this one off your bucket list it’s a must do. Amazing views of Fiordland and the mountains as we flew into Milford Sound. Reserved window seat on the Milford Sound cruise. Antony our pilot was very passionate and knowledgeable with his commentary. Awesome experience!

Great experience, was quite apprehensive about the flight but the staff were very friendly, nerves vanished. Very informative while inflight. We had an added bonus of landing on a sheep station , taking in the views on a walk around the property. When next in town we will try another trip thats for sure.

The experience of getting on a 5- seater plane was really awesome. We paid only for a 25-minute flight on top of Queenstown, but we ended up flying over 45 minutes with a free trip to Walter's Peak Farms. I really love that it was even the CEO himself, Hank who flew us around. He was friendly and very approachable. Thanks so much for the great experience!

The team at Air Milford were awesome, we were in touch with them the day we arrived in Queenstown as we were booked for the Sunday but as the weather was not great, they moved our booking to the Tuesday and what a stunner of a day. We saw penguins, seals and dolphins! Well worth the money, I think every Kiwi should experience this.

Dear U5687FCmichellem, Thank you for reviewing Air Milford on TripAdvisor. We are so pleased to hear you had an awesome time exploring Milford Sound with us, we couldn't agree more with your sentiment, that "every kiwi should experience this!" Milford Sound is an incredible destination, but it receives some wild weather, it's inhospitable nature is one of the reasons it is so spectacular, but it does also mean that travelers need to have a bit of flexibility with their schedule, so they can work round any weather delays. We are so pleased to hear you were flexible with your days and were rewarded with a stunning day for your trip - how fabulous you got to see the 'big three' in terms of wildlife in Milford too, penguins, dolphins and seals - wow! On behalf of your pilot and the resto of the Air Milford team, thank you for choosing to fly with us and for your endorsement to future travelers. All the best, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford. ✈️NZ🗺️🥝📷😍⚓🛩️🐬

What an opportunity! A huge thanks to Air Milford to put on flights up to Branches Station and Lochnagar. The kids of Wakatipu have an amazing camp in year 10 that most parents find hard to imagine. To actually fly over Lochnagar and land at the farm for morning tea was probably the best "local" experience I have had. Professional company and pilots.

Dear SusanMM50, Thank you for reviewing Air Milford on TripAdvisor. We are so pleased to hear that you had an awesome time exploring a part of our region, which is iconic to locals, but often hard to access. It's a rite of passage for local children to visit the Branches Station, for their year 10 camp and it was fantastic to host a bunch of parents, who had heard all the incredible stories, but were yet to get there themselves. On behalf of the whole team here at Air Milford, thank you for choosing to fly with us we are so pleased to know we were able to host you on an incredible trip! Sincerely, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford. ✈️NZ🗺️🥝📷😍⚓🛩️🐬
