Air Safaris commenced operations in 1970 based at Mesopotamia, a well known High Country Sheep Station in the Rangitata Valley. The fledgling company gained an Air Service Charter and Scenic Flying Licence and for three years operated a 3 passenger Cessna 180 aircraft, transporting and guiding trampers, fishermen, hunters, photographers and sightseers into the remote areas of the Aoraki Mount Cook region.

In 1973 the company purchased its own brand new aircraft, a 5 passenger Cessna 185, and the scenic flying side of the operation was extended to introduce the Grand Traverse flight for visitors at Lake Tekapo using a short grass airstrip courtesy of Mount John Sheep Station.
