Sounds Air

story by: Tom Ricketts

Sounds Air is a small New Zealand owned and operated airline opened in 1986. The airline has a fleet of eight small turboprop aircraft which carry nine or twelve passengers. The airline started by offering flights between Wellington and their home base at Picton, on the north of the South Island. Recently Sounds Air has picked up some services that were axed from Air New Zealand’s network.
