Terms & Conditions


Reservations are recommended in advance to avoid disappointment. Simply visit our book now page to select your preferred location and scenic flight then follow the prompts to complete your online booking.

Please Note: A credit card is required to pre-authorise and guarantee your booking. Payment for your flight can be made on the day of your departure. Should you fail to show for the trip when space is guaranteed, your credit card will be debited with the total amount of the booked activity.


All flights have a minimum passenger number for departures. Bookings will be accepted for numbers less than the required minimum as we will coordinate to achieve the required minimum. Clients are required to reconfirm their reservation the day prior to flying by calling The Helicopter Line base where they have booked to fly. For contact numbers visit our contact us page. 


If you cannot travel because you are directly impacted by Covid-19 you will be offered the option to reschedule your booking or receive a full refund.

If we are required to move alert levels and reduce capacity or stop operating, you will be contacted by our team to organise a reschedule or refund.


Should inclement weather prevent a flight at the booked location, the same prepaid voucher will be accepted at any of The Helicopter Line aviation bases for a flight of similar duration and price. If you are unable to re-schedule the flight then a full refund will be provided.

No refund will be given for no-shows or changes you make to your booking less than 24 hours prior to departure.
