Air Milford has always seen itself as a tour company that focuses on sightseeing tours of the Queenstown, Fiordland and South Island regions. Mainstay of the sightseeing flights are those from Queenstown to Milford Sound but scenic flights are also offered over the Queenstown area, Doubtful Sound and to Mount Cook.
The initial aircraft used by Air Milford were Cessna A185F ZK-ENW Skywagon (c/n 18503133) and Cessna U206F Stationair ZK-DWX (c/n U20602641).

With the demand for its services increasing Air Milford looked to purchase a second Cessna Caravan. Delays in its delivery led the company to lease Salt Air's Cessna Grand Caravan ZK-MJL during the 2013/14 summer. In January 2014 Antony Sproull, Air Milford's operations manager, along with two other ferry pilots, flew Cessna 208 Caravan SX-SKV from Greece to Queenstown via the Greek Islands, Egypt, Oman, the Maldives, the Cocos Islands and Australia to Queenstown where it was registered ZK-SKA (c/n 20800524).
