Easter Travel Tips

Make Your Holiday Travels Sweet As this Easter with Sounds Air


We know holidays and travel can be stressful but they don’t have to be. We've put together some tips so your Easter travels can be sweet as!


1. Understand what you can and can't fly with


All Sounds Air passengers have a baggage allowance of 20kg, inclusive of carry-on. We also allow one small personal item on board, such as a laptop or handbag.


Planning heaps of exciting activities over the holiday? Bring it on! Some Sounds Air routes allow passengers to transport snow/water skis, snowboards, surfboards or push bikes. For more info on excess luggage and costs click here.


2. Booking tips

Want to travel for less this Easter? For our less expensive fares, we recommend booking in advance and on days with less demand. There is high demand for flights out of Wellington before Easter and high demand for flights into Wellington after Easter weekend. Keep an eye out for our Sounds Good fare option for the best deals on flights!

3. Travel with your pets

Don’t leave your four-legged family member at home during the holidays! We welcome our 'Pawesome' Passengers like they are part of our family too! We allow passengers to fly with cats and small dogs for $15. Unaccompanied pets can be transported for $50. For more information on how to travel with your pet on your next Sounds Air flight click here.

4. Know when to check-in

Don’t let holiday traffic or busy airports catch you off guard. Knowing when to check-in is one of the most vital holiday travel tips. Check-in time on Sounds Air flights opens one hour prior to departure and all passengers must check in at least 30 minutes prior to flight departure time.
