Conservation & Sustainability

Our Committment

GCH Aviation Group is committed to working with the Department of Conservation (DOC) on our concessions operating responsibly over the DOC estate and marine areas to ensure that future generations are able to enjoy our unspoilt remote areas. We follow the principles of Tiaki, Kaitiakitanga and Manaakitanga, caring for New Zealand and its people now, and for future generations.

The Tiaki Promise

Caring for land, sea and nature, treading lightly and leaving no trace. Travelling safely, showing care and consideration for all. Respecting culture and travelling with an open heart and mind. 


Guardianship and protection. A way of caring for and managing the environment.


Inspires the way that travellers are made to feel welcome when visiting New Zealand, by providing unique cultural experiences through our hospitality.

In 2018, GCH Aviation signed up to the New Zealand Sustainability Commitment. We have a dedicated team that are constantly reviewing and implementing practices that consider the 8 industry-level sustainability Goals and 14 Commitments within the agreement.
