Milford Sound Airport

Coordinates: -44.672881, 167.924793

Milford Sound Airport is surrounded by water on 3 sides. The runway aims straight for Mitre Peak and a clear view of the peak can be gained from the Deepwater Basin road at the Eastern end of the runway. In the Summer it is a very busy little airport with traffic coming from Queenstown to connect with the cruises.

Flying in to Milford Sound from Queenstown does avoid a long journey by road, at least 5 hours each way, but you do miss the fabulous Milford Road. In my opinion the most sensible option, short of spending several days camping on the Milford Road, is to stay in Te Anau so that you can have a fuller experience.
