Our Queenstown Helicopters

Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters (Helicopters Queenstown 2020 Ltd) own & operate the most modern fleet of Airbus helicopters in New Zealand.

All our helicopters are late-model and seat up to 6 passengers plus your pilot.

Our fleet of impressive helicopters includes modern Airbus AS350 B2 & AS350 B3e Squirrels as well as an Airbus H130 T2 (introduced to our fleet in June 2015, previously known as a Eurocopter EC 130 T2).

Our helicopters are kept in pristine condition and have been upgraded with leather seating throughout.

All our maintenance procedures comply with New Zealand Civil Aviation safety standards and our maintenance is carried out by Heli Support Wanaka

Airbus H130 is available for private charter flights on request. All our ‘per person’ rates advertised are based on using our Squirrel helicopters.


 Airbus H 130 T2

This spacious helicopter has huge advances in technology over older models making it smoother, quieter and more luxurious than any other helicopter on the market. The Airbus H130 T2 is the only one of its kind to be permanently based at Queenstown Airport.  This helicopter is usually used for charter, exclusive and private scenic helicopter flights. 

Airbus B2 and B3E Squirrels

Our modern fleet of Squirrels are highly regarded for their versatility and high performance in a variety of conditions.  The cabin design provides passengers with a high level of comfort and panoramic views are offered by the large windows. We pride ourselves on the presentation of our aircraft so that during your scenic helicopter flight passengers enjoy the most comfortable experience possible.
