What happens if the weather prevents us from flying to Milford Sound?

Due to the weather-dependent nature of flying in the Southern Alps to or from Milford Sound, it is unfortunate that there are occasions where the forecast is not suitable for flying and we will be unable to offer you your scenic flight to or from Milford Sound. The safety of our passengers is always our highest priority and in the event of adverse weather, you will need to have booked a backup transport option to or from Milford Sound.

How will I get back to my Queenstown accommodation?

We offer a  complimentary return shuttle into Central Queenstown after your one way flight from Milford Sound to Queenstown. Let us know where you are staying and we can confirm your drop off point.

 

We also offer complimentary transfers for those taking a one way flight from Queenstown to Milford Sound.

Are there any luggage restrictions?

Please note, we have a 15kg restriction on luggage.

 

When flying with Glenorchy Air, there are restrictions in place when it comes to carrying certain items considered dangerous goods. We need to ensure we keep everyone safe and certain dangerous goods can react badly to the conditions they are exposed to during a flight. Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the dangerous goods list found under Terms and Conditions at the bottom of our website. There will also be a copy attached to your booking confirmation. You must not carry any of the restricted items in your baggage. As you would be flying with us one way out of Milford Sound, any dangerous items taken off you before you board will, unfortunately, be left behind. If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call on 03 442 2207.
