Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wellington - Blenheim

Return day trip to Blenheim. It's a single prop plane and has the real feel of flying. Brilliant scenery and service.

Paraparaumu - Blenheim
Domestic

I flew down to Blenheim for 3 days work. I live on the coast so it was super convenient from home. Staff were very friendly while being professional and efficient. Nice views from the plane (high wing not in the way). I will go their way again.

Wellington - Picton
Domestic

I have flown with Sounds Air a few times and they have all been good experiences. This is a small plane, only 9-12 passengers, with the luggage weighed prior to departure. I have always found both the ground crew and pilots to be very helpful and friendly. Great views too!

We flew Taupo-Wellington in a small, single prop plane (I think it was a PC12) on a spectacularly clear, calm morning. The crew were really friendly and it was refreshing to step back into old-fashioned, personal service on an airline. If you sit on the right side of the plane

Fabulous flying! I was a little nervous to fly over the windy channel but it turned out to be one of the best parts of our holiday. We were treated to incredible views leaving Wellington and coming in to Picton. Flying was really exciting because we were in a smaller plane, yet

"small 12 seater aircraft, weight is a serious matter so don't take too much luggage or if you do, expect to be charged for it."
