Seaplane service to take wings in two months


A day after Chief Minister Oommen Chandy severely criticised the non-starter status of Seaplane service, the state government has initiated steps to renew the project on a war-footing. Wings Aviation – one of the operators of Seaplane Project – has decided to start operations by April 14.

Inviting Seaplane operators, the government has come out with an early bird incentive for those who begin the operations within two months. As per the advertisement given by the Kerala Tourism Infrastructure Ltd (KTIL) on Monday, the government has extended the Early Bird Incentive for operators till April 30.

Operators are also offered free access to waterdromes for one year. Those who begin operations before April 30 will get exclusive government business for two years. Initially, there were five companies, which expressed interest in operating the service, of which, three backed out later.
