Glenorchy Air Scenic Flights

Glenorchy Air is a family owned business that has been operating since 1992 with a perfect safety record. Our scenic flights include trips to Milford Sound, Mount Cook National Park and our local glacier flight, which circles Mount Aspiring before returning along the Dart River. We also offer the experience to charter your own plane and explore the south island freely.

Enjoy and explore unimpaired views of the snow-capped Southern Alps, magnificent fiords, crystal lakes and vast glaciers with our friendly and knowledgeable pilots. We guarantee a window seat for all passengers and fly our own unique route to add extra fly time and offer all of our customers the best scenic experience possible.
