After the most trying 18 months we’ve ever had, adapting to a changing world and catering to a domestic market, we are so proud of what our team here at Glenorchy Air has accomplished. During this time, we created new products, the true star being our Sunrise Flight around Mt. Aspiring, whose beauty can be seen all over our passenger’s Instagram feeds. Venturing further south, we started our Stewart Island Fly | Explore | Fly where you can explore Ulva Island, marine farms and meet the local birdlife. Our latest and greatest, the Milford Sound Ultimate Overnight Experience, delivers two days immersed in Milford Sound’s spectacular beauty by land, water, and air. We want to thank our incredible team for their huge effort during this time, from cheerfully taking our passenger’s first phone call or email, to our pilot’s taking the “long way home” to show off their favourite hidden alpine lake.
