Sounds Air to fly electric passenger planes [RNZ, 18/08/21]
Electric passenger planes are set to feature on departure boards in NZ within five years.
Blenheim based Sounds Air is unveiling plans to be the first Australasian airline offering electric-powered flights.
It plans to have a fleet of at least three 19-seater aircraft set for take-off by 2026, and eventually to fully-convert to an all-electric fleet.
