The price can vary greatly, depending on whether helicopter (more expensive) or fixed-wing plane (less so). It also depends on how many others are flying and which company you use.

Milford Sound Scenic charge $315 to $355 pp www.milfordflights.co.nz/flights.asp#combos

If in Milford, ask around the pilots and you can no doubt secure a good price for a last minute deal. Some planes and helicopters will be returning half empty and they will be happy to fill the seats. If in Queenstown try the various companies (you can Google for info).

Best of luck :)

Milford Helicopters: 40 min flight inc glacier landing / $625pp. Note heli is based in Milford & can operate on almost every day, whereas fixed wing aircraft probably only fly 60-70% of the time due to weather restrictions

It isn't cheap, but if you get a good day its a magnificent flight.

Milford Helicopters also offer a scenic flight through the mountains available after the cruise and many coach passengers on the day trips use this option. It catches up with the coach on a prearranged part of the Milford road where you reboard the couch for the remaining journey back to TeAnau/Queenstown. From memory it lasted about 25 minutes and cost $275 but it was the best heli flight I have ever experienced.

If you fly back to Queenstown fixed wing or heli is a great option. Test your coach drivers knowledge by asking which fixed wing planes give the best views. Some planes are better than others.

Always book your flights when you arrive in Milford it will give your more options. Ask your coach driver about the half priced standby seats that are sometimes available.

Enjoy.
