About Sounds Air

Sounds Air is a small regional airline based in New Zealand.

The airline was founded in 1986 by couple Cliff and Diane Marchant. Their vision was to provide low cost flights to the Marlborough Sounds, a collection of ancient sunken river valleys filled with the waters of the Pacific Ocean, at the northern end of the South Island of New Zealand.

History

From just one Cessna Caravan operating a single route across the Cook Straight, Sounds Air has grown rapidly over the last 30 years; in 2015, the airline carried 78,000 passengers, which compares to 14,000 passengers in 2003. Today, the airline offers scheduled flights, as well as charter and shuttle services.

Sounds Air Fare Classes

No matter what fare you choose, expect to receive the same quality service that the airline has provided since 1987.

Economy Class

Sounds air offers a standard class fare, akin to what might be expected from an economy class fare. However, the airline does recognise that different flyers have different needs. Therefore, Sounds Air offers three grades of fare, including:

Sounds Best - the most flexible fare, for passengers with dynamic schedules. Passengers can change or cancel their flight for free of charge, up to 1 hour prior to scheduled departure time.

Sounds Great - the classic middle range fare. Passengers are still able to cancel or change their flights prior to the day of departure, but will be charged $25 NZD per passenger.

Sounds Good - the least expensive fare, for passengers with firm travel plans that want to fly for less. Passengers are still able to cancel or change their flights up to the day of departure, but will be charged $40 NZD per passenger.
