Overview
More
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.

Our hotel, The amazing Rees Hotel, recommended we fly in and fly out of Milford Sound as the 8 hour coach trip didn’t really appeal and we are so pleased they did. The team at Air Milford are incredibly professional with Tom being our pilot....More

Confirming our booking early on our 1st morning, they suggested we might like to grab the chance to go that day in stunning weather rather than risk it deteriorating by our booked day. I like that sort of flexibility. Everything went smoothly, with a comfortable...More
