Glenorchy Air Celebrates 25 years of operating

A few months ago, November 2017, Glenorchy Air celebrated its 25th Anniversary of operating. 

We are very pleased to be celebrating this milestone and proud to be part of the Queenstown aviation community for so many years. 

We started with small beginnings in 1992, and now operate 5 aircraft out of our Queenstown Terminal base and airside hangar.

With over 10 staff members we are on target for flying 10,000 passengers in 2018! (Fingers crossed for the weather)

We would also like to thank everyone who has helped us meet this milestone.

With longer day during the summer period we are excited to start doing our

Newest addition to our fleet


Meet ZEA our newest addition to our company.  She is a GA8 Airvan all the way from Australia, we now have three in our fleet and we have already put her to good use flying to Milford Sound.

ZEA are the initials for Janet and Robert Rutherfords four offspring, Zoe, Emily, Andrew & Amy.  However all aircraft registrations in NZ are only 3 letters long.
