Sounds Air Flights

The New Zealand airline Sounds Air was founded in 1986 and is based at Picton. It was established with the aim to provide low cost inter-island transport for both locals and tourists. The Sounds Air fleet consists of four Cessna Caravan Fleet aircraft, single engine, turbine-powered airliners that were chosen due to the high level of passenger safety and comfort it provides, in addition to sturdiness and reliability.

Sounds Airs operates to Wellington, Picton, Nelson, Blenheim, and Wanganui, and is considering offering services to Masterton. It also offers hour-long scenic flights over the Abel Tasman National Park for stunning mountain and coastal viewing, as well as over the many inlets and coves of the majestic Marlborough Sounds. The airline formerly provided flights to Kaikoura from Wellington and Kapiti Coast from Picton, but these scheduled passenger services ceased in 2009.

Why Fly with Sounds Air

Baggage Allowance & Fees

Free baggage allowance for all Sounds Air flights is up to 15kg per adult or child passenger (excluding infants). Should the passenger's luggage exceed the free allowance, there will be a corresponding fee per kilogram. The maximum weight for any luggage item is 25kg.

Booking Fees

Fares for a one-way ticket vary depending on the age of the passenger. Anyone over the age of 13 years is considered an adult. Children who are no more than two years of age are considered infants and may be seated on an adult's lap and are therefore free of charge. However, only one infant per adult is allowed, and Sounds Air may only carry a maximum of two infants per flight. The airline also accepts unaccompanied minors aged 7-12. Bookings for Unaccompanied Minors should be done through the Reservations Office.
