Absolutely Wonderful

It was an amazing experience to fly over then land on the glacier. All the staff from pilots to support crew were welcoming, professional and confidence inspiring. Thank you to them all. Our return via helicopter was also fantastic with 'close up' views of mountains, crevasses and glaciers.

Go with another provider

I think they have fewer helicopters than their competitors because even though we pre-booked a 10 am flight they continuously delayed us for more than 3 hrs till they could finally fit us with their other reservations on a heli. Their staff was very unprofessional - instead of informing us how long the delay would be they just told us we’d fly in 30 mins and when the time passed they would say just another 30. This happened for more than 3 hrs. With so many other providers I would play it safe - go with any of the others.

I want to know what is the reason to cancel the flight? Any grounds and scientific statistics that cause this happen? Please provide relevant weather statistics if possible from Inflite. Nick
