Air Milford Ltd is a charter airline based in Queenstown, New Zealand. It provides scenic and charter services in the Queenstown and Mount Cook regions, using their fleet of four Cessna Caravans and one Cessna 185.

History[edit]

The company was founded in 1993 by David and Phillip Bunn. It was taken over by Hank Sproul in 1998. In December 2016 Air Milford announced it would begin its first scheduled service between Te Anau and Queenstown in early 2017 to test the appetite for a regular commuter service.[1] Air Milford in April 2020 raised concerns over safety of closure of the flight information service provided at Milford Sound Airport, stating that the risk of having up to 250 flights movements per day without any air traffic control would be highly dangerous.[2]
