Mount Cook Airline Reviews

Mount Cook Airline was founded in 1920 by a pioneer of the tourism of New Zealand, Mr. Rodolph Lysaght Wigley. He was also the first person who drove a motor car to The Hermitage, a famous hotel destination in Mount Cook. Since the airline was founded by Wigley, the airline has been one of New Zealand’s tourism pioneers opening up the ‘tourist trail’ of Rotorua through Christchurch, Mount Cook and Queenstown.

Air New Zealand actually purchased part of the Mount Cook Group after the death of Wigley’s son, Henry Wigley in 1980. But, now, Air New Zealand wholly owns Mount Cook Airline.

The airline’s symbol is the traditional flower, Mount Cook Lily. The new logo is a much-simplified flower, featuring six separate petals rather than the former layered specimen. Mount Cook Airline is now being led by the CEO of Air New Zealand, Christopher Luxon.

  1. Just two of us on the flight with pilot Pete on a perfect day. The most amazing experience with a very experienced and knowledgeable pilot. The glacier landing was almost surreal – so calm and peaceful. This is a must-do!
