A highlight of my NZ trip!

If you have the money then treat yourself to this epic trip it was amazing. This was my first experience of flying in a helicopter and you couldn't ask for better views. I done the combo as I've never flown in a ski plane either.

Hi Ben, thanks for your review. It sure is an amazing option to be able to experience flying in our unique skiplanes as well as in a helicoptor. We're so pleased your first experience was with us.

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.

Breath taking journey

It was amazing, the view, the company and of course the captain. So glad we did it, big damage(lol) but definitely worth it....

Last minute changes

Cancelled our flight due to weather and changed it to helicopter. Then later told us that we couldnt go together in 2 helicopters, due to other helicopter being late. Felt like just an excuse to operate a single chopper. Poor service.

Thank you Lek Guan for taking the time for this review. We were also heartbroken for you on this day. Weather was not in our favour, so your ultimate alpine combo (Ski plane & Helicopter) flight changed to a 25 minute helicopter scenic flight. A special flight that we could still offer you in the conditions. However only having 1 helicopter that day, we charted in another helicopter to help us with your request of the group staying together. However the other company were running very behind their schedule and they did not inform us of this until your flight time. I then updated you straight away, apologising and also angry with them on your behalf. I offered you a full refund or the option still to fly, but of back to back flights with our helicopter, so 1 half of the group at a time. You accepted and I was so happy to see your smiley faces after and to hear that you enjoyed the flight. We gave the children cookies to have on your journey from us, and had hoped your experience with us was special even so. I understand your frustration, however we really did do our best for you and kept you updated through out. If you would like to discuss this further, please email myself on hannah.james@inflite.nz.
