Tiaki Promise

The Helicopter Line is committed to respecting and preserving the beautiful surroundings in which we are fortunate to be able to share with our guests.

We are a Qualmark Gold endorsed member which means we are the best sustainable tourism businesses in New Zealand. We are constantly reviewing our Conservations efforts to ensure we Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

We work closely with The Department of Conservation at each of our bases in Queenstown, Mount Cook and the West Coast. A portion of each of our experiences goes towards their conservation efforts.

Aotearoa’s Tiaki Promise

The Tiaki Promise is embraced by our teams and we encourage all of our guests, be them visitors or citizens of New Zealand, to learn and practice the Tiaki promise so that they can join us in keeping New Zealand beautiful.

Tiaki means to care for people, place and culture.

New Zealand is precious, and everyone who lives and travels here has a responsibility to look after it. The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, for now, and for future generations.

By following the Tiaki Promise, you are making a commitment to New Zealand to act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home.

Nau mai, haere mai ki Aotearoa. Welcome to New Zealand.
