Sounds Air is a locally owned and operated airline based at Picton
Airport, in the heart of Marlborough, New Zealand. Sounds Air links the
North and South Islands between Wellington, Picton, Blenheim and Nelson.
Sounds Air was started by Cliff and Diane Marchant in 1986. They had a vision of providing low cost inter-island transport to provide locals and tourists with easy access to the Marlborough Sounds.
Since that time we have made over 100,000 crossings of Cook Strait to our own airport at Picton and also to Blenheim, Nelson and many airstrips in the Marlborough Sounds.
The companies Directors are Andrew Crawford, who is Sounds Air’s Managing Director and Steve Handyside.
Sounds Air runs an all Cessna Caravan Fleet of aircraft. These are single engine, turbine powered and are the perfect aircraft for our routes providing high levels of passenger safety and comfort as well as being very sturdy and extremely reliable aircraft to operate.
