Sounds Air is back flying under Level 2.

The regional airline was unable to access Aviation support from Government as it was non-essential during Covid-19.

Sounds Air CEO Andrew Crawford told Mike Hosking they'll run 25 percent fewer flights this week compared to 2019.

"The same week last year we did 304 flights, this coming week we will do 78.

"We can't fill the planes up so actual capacity is down 82 percent."

Crawford says they’re still in talks with the Ministry and taking advantage of the Wage Subsidy Extension.
