Sounds Air's Blenheim-Napier service to start in November
Sounds Air have announced their intention to commence services between Blenheim and Napier. Sounds Air's webpage reports, "The service starts in Blenheim on the 5th November and we will be operating six flights a week initially but we plan for more as the service grows. Our service from Blenheim to Napier is in our Pilatus PC12 aircraft, offering excellent safety, reliability and passenger comfort. This direct service connects two wine regions making travelling for business and pleasure easy, our convenient schedule allows for day or weekend trips!"
Sounds Air is delighted to announce the commencement of a new Blenheim to Napier scheduled air service. Available to book now, the service will start on the 5th November 2015 with a 06:30 a.m. departure from Blenheim to Napier. The return flight will return at 08:00. The initial schedule will be as follows:-
Thursday and Friday Only
Blenheim to Napier - Depart 06:30 - Arrive 07:20
- Depart 17:00 - Arrive 17:50
Napier to Blenheim - Depart 08:00 - Arrive 08:50
- Depart 18:30 Arrive 19:20
There will be also be a late afternoon return flight on Sundays and an early morning flight on Monday.
Sounds Air sees the route as complementary to our existing services from Wellington to Picton, Blenheim, Taupo, Westport and Nelson and also the Blenheim to Paraparaumu and Nelson Paraparaumu sectors.
The fares will be fixed as follows:-
Internet Fare $ 249 $ 239
Standard Fare $ 269 $ 259
Ten Trip Fare $ 2,290 ($ 229 each)
Like all Sounds Air flights there are no credit card fees, no more than one bag fees, no travel insurance fees. What we say is what you pay. With a flight time of 50 minutes this is very cost and time effective way to travel between New Zealand’s two premier wine regions. We expect the route to appeal to business and leisure travellers alike.
The route will be flown in one of our Pilatus PC12 turbine powered aircraft. The same aircraft we are utilising on the Wellington to Westport and Taupo sectors that have had such a great response from our passengers. We are very open to expanding the schedule but will get the initial service established before looking at additional flights.
