This blog started off by focussing on NZ's smaller 3rd level airlines, past and present. It has evolved to trying to present some record of NZ's domestic airline operations and some of the larger charter operators, interesting NZ international airliner movements and photos I have taken around the country.

Soundsair offering a different way to travel WLG-CHC
Found on the Sounds Air website is this interesting combination of two great ways to travel - Sounds Air across the Strait and the Tranz Coastal Express down to Christchurch..
Sounds Air Throughfares
Combining the best of the TranzCoastal with the fastest and most scenic way to cross Cook Strait we are pleased to now offer a fantastic alternative to travelling between Christchurch and Wellington. With our Sounds Air Throughfare, we combine a scenic rail journey onboard the TranzCoastal service with a range of flight options to cross Cook Strait on Sounds Air. Heading north, we offer travel from Christchurch and Kaikoura to Wellington and vice versa. The flight takes just 25 minutes and you will enjoy panoramic views of the Marlborough Sounds as you cross Cook Strait. With up to 8 return flights per day, there are many different options for enjoying Picton and the surrounding wineries. Sounds Air offer Tranz Scenic customers a complimentary shuttle between Picton railway station and Picton Airport.
