Anne & Paul Cooper /Owner Operators – Comment
“We are really excited about the award and although it’s been a team effort we would particularly like to thank Kelli for all her time and dedication to the project.
As a company we are very conscious of the impact tourism has on the environment and know that we have to do whatever we can to protect that environment because that’s what visitors come here for. Not only is this fantastic for Southern Alps Air but for all tourism operators in Wanaka.”
