New Zealand carrier Sounds Air, based in Blenheim, will make its content available to travel sellers around the world via the Amadeus travel platform.
Sounds Air is hosted by passenger services system Takeflite Solutions and this development is the result of a new partnership between Amadeus and Takeflite which offers enhanced global distribution options to regional airlines.
This development means that TMCs, corporations, tour operators, retail travel agencies, online travel agencies and metasearch players connected through the Amadeus travel platform will be able to search, book and make reservations on Sounds Air. .

Using their preferred Amadeus interface, they will have access to airline flight schedules, load changes, seat maps and fare families as well as real-time flight updates.
“We are delighted to be working with Sounds Air and honored to have been selected as the carrier’s premier travel distribution partner,” said Lance Batty, Director, Airlines, Pacific, Amadeus. “We look forward to supporting the carrier’s growth as travel rebuilds with premium technology.”
From a single Cessna Caravan operating a single route across the Cook Strait, Sounds Air has grown over 34 years in New Zealand. Today it operates in major cities with regular flights between Blenheim, Christchurch, Nelson, Paraparaumu, Picton, Taupo, Wanaka, Wellington and Westport.
Sounds Air is on its way to zero-emissions flight and aspires to be the first zero-emissions carrier in Australasia by 2030.
“Amadeus facilitates the sale and distribution of travel globally, connecting travel suppliers with travel sellers, and we see great interest in having our content on the Amadeus travel platform,” said Andrew Crawford, CEO of Sounds Air. “Amadeus will implement Sounds Air content with end-to-end integration, bringing back-office benefits to sellers and making it easier to use the agency’s online booking tool to book flights for our airline.”
