Dear Bazza1066, Thank you for reviewing your experience with Air Milford on TripAdvisor. I'm so pleased to hear that you had a fabulous time flying with us recently, it was our absolute pleasure to host you! I couldn't agree more, the views of the Southern Alps, through the windows of one of our Cessna Caravans is spectacular. Our fleet of planes are ideal for scenic flying in the Fiordland region, they have large windows and high wings, which means that passengers get to enjoy the incredible scenery unobscured. On behalf of the Air Milford team, thank you for your rating of 'must-do' in the region and all the best for your future adventures. Sincerely, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford. ✈️NZ🗺️🥝📷😍⚓🛩️🐬

Our family of 5 had booked a round trip van excursion to Milford Sound from Queenstown - when we arrived in Milford Sound, the day was absolutely picture perfect. We have a 9 year old who gets carsick and an 11 year old aviation enthusiast - so we made a last minute decision to

Dear Guest, On behalf of Air Milford, I want to thank you for your lovely review. I had the privilege of being your pilot, and remember the situation because I love nothing more than flying budding young pilots! I wish I could have offered the co-pilots seat, but due to weight & balance this had to go to an adult. So this perk will wait for his return one day soon. The combination tour with Altitude is the ultimate day trip to Queenstown, I can't wait to share this with Heidi who is their manager. We are obviously in trying times now with COVID, so we love nothing more than reminiscing about 'the good old days' and can't wait to return to doing what we love - hosting fabulous guests like you folk. Please look after yourself, and thanks again for taking the time to review Air Milford. Yours Sincerely, Antony Sproull

Dear Richard, Thank you for reviewing Air Milford on TripAdvisor. It was our pleasure to host you recently and we are really pleased to hear that you loved your "amazing flight" with us from Milford Sound, to Queenstown! The drive into Milford Sound Is undoubtedly beautiful, but why repeat the journey & retrace your steps by land, when you can opt for a stunning scenic flight over the snow capped peaks back to Queenstown - giving you the full appreciation for our stunning local region. On behalf of Hank, Antony and the rest of the team, thank you for your high endorsement to future travelers and all the best for your next adventures. Sincerely, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford.

We took a flight to Milford Sound. This is an amazing experience and one well worth saving up for. Most people on our flight also took the boat trip but we were glad we did not. The view from the boat is spectacular our co travellers said, but not as special as the view from

Dear Guest, Thank you for your heart warming review – I’m a little speechless with your compliments so excuse this response for not doing your ‘dashing’ review justice! Ninety percent of our clients opt for the Fly/Cruise/Fly combination, so to have you represent the minority is worth its weight in gold. There are some magical short walks in Milford Sound, or for the less active put your feet up at the Blue Duck Café over a coffee and take in one of the world’s tallest hanging cliffs, Mitre Peak. It is great that we have this platform to inform people that there is more to Milford than just boat cruising! For this we are so grateful for your feedback. On behalf of all the team that contributed to your fabulous day, thanks for choosing Air Milford.

Dear Katsal1234, Thank you for reviewing Air Milford on TripAdvisor. We are really pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your one-way scenic flight from Milford Sound to Queenstown with us. We absolutely agree, the scenic panoramas experienced are incredible - you get so close to the snow capped peaks it's like you could reach through the plane window an touch them! We find that quite a lot of people, after taking the 5hr coach ride from Queenstown to Milford Sound in the morning, although enjoying the interesting drive, are not keen to repeat the 290kms of winding roads back to Queenstown, but instead opt to take one our scenic flights back to Queenstown. Other than the greatly reduced travel time, guests also get to enjoy vistas inaccessible by road and get back to Queenstown in time for happy hour! On behalf of your pilot Tom and the rest of the Air Milford team, thank you for choosing to fly with us and for your high recommendation to future travelers, All the best, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford.
