Scenic Charter Flights
Flexible Charter Options
Air Safaris operates air charter services throughout New Zealand. The company specialises in charter flights between Christchurch, Mount Cook, Queenstown, Wanaka, and Milford Sound. The option of a charter flight means that you can easily travel between the South Island main centres, save on travel time, while enjoying some of New Zealand's finest scenery. In conjunction with a charter flight, Air Safaris often provide an extended scenic flight through the Mt Cook region or alternatively you can fly direct - the choice is yours!
Trans Divide Air Transfers
Weather permitting Air Safaris operate flights on demand between Franz Josef, Mount Cook and Lake Tekapo. This means a 6+ hour trip by road can be accomplished in less than 30 minutes by air. These Trans Divide flights traverse some of the most spectacular alpine scenery the Mount Cook and Westland National Parks have to offer. Flights include many of the highlights seen on our Grand Traverse scenic flights. Please contact us for a quote.
Aircraft can be configured for photography (doors removed if required - by special arrangement and at the discretion of Air Safaris staff). All senior pilots have considerable experience in operating these photographic flights. Please contact us for a quote.
Air Safaris can provide special educational aerial sightseeing tours of our unique glaciated environment. Tours include many ancient landforms and features contrasting with modern day processes and landscapes. The Mackenzie Basin around Lake Tekapo has been little altered since the last ice age approximately 15000 years ago and provides stunning views of a previously glaciated landscape. These flights also feature the high country sheep stations and how the rugged country is farmed.
Special Interest Scenic Tours
If you would like something different from our Grand Traverse or wish to visit an area within the central regions of the South Island then a charter flight with Air Safaris would be a great option.
