Mount Cook Airline expects to be able to get almost all passengers to their destinations today as more aircraft become operational following its full fleet inspection.

"Of the 4,000 passengers we will be moving around the country today we expect there will be fewer than 50 who we can't get to their destination," says General Manager Sarah Williamson.

Mount Cook was able to bring two ATRs back into service earlier than expected this morning which meant it began the day with four aircraft operating.

"With additional support from our jet and Q300 fleets we've been able to replace almost all the lost capacity and we expect the picture to be very similar tomorrow," says Ms Williamson.
