Scenic flight over Mt. Cook
Welcome to Glenorchy Air
Flights to Milford Sound, Mt. Cook, the Glaciers and the South Island
Glenorchy Air is a New Zealand scenic flight airline based in Queenstown.
We provide scenic flights from Queenstown and Glenorchy to many destinations around the South Island incuding Milford Sound, where you can also take the cruise. We also fly to Fiordland, Mt Cook, the Glaciers, the penguin and albatross colonies of Otago's east coast and to New Line Cinemas, Lord of the Rings movies location sites in the southern part of the south Island of New Zealand. Check out our Trilogy Trail website for our Lord of the Rings tours or our charter services for personalised scenic flights.
Glenorchy Air is a family business run by Janet and Robert Rutherford. Robert grew up in the area and knows it very well. His ancestors arrived here from Scotland in the 1860s to mine for gold. We started Glenorchy Air in 1992, so we have had many years of safe operation.
We are uniquely placed to share our knowledge and love of the area with our guests. We have the flexibility to fit in with your requirements so long as safety is not compromised.
Our staff specialise in providing the highest standard of personal, friendly service to clients who travel in groups of no more than seven per aircraft. The pilots have a love of this area and are skilled at flying in the mountains.Our fleet of aircraft are fitted with individual head sets so you are able to hear the pilot's informative commentary. Our safety record is flawless and we have a very stringent environmental policy to help minimise our impact on our natural surroundings.
The kea is our registered trade mark. This New Zealand parrot is the only alpine parrot in the world.
