Since the Department of Tourism in the southernmost state of India has launched seaplane service from its backwaters, vacationers have something really big to rejoice with. The lucrative project was inaugurated earlier this month on June 2.

Sources reveal that seaplane flights will only be operated during the day and every flight will accommodate only six people including the pilot. So that the travellers can get a panoramic view of the aircraft will fly below the clouds at low altitude.

Kerala, which already is one of the most sought after tourist zones in India , hopes to allure more and more travellers from Asia and Europe by such tourist friendly activities. Demand for flights heading to the state is sure to surge up, as the project will connect around 25 major tourist destinations and will give visitors a comfy, hassle free and indeed a unique travel experience.

The tourists, who have already booked tickets for Kerala bound flights, must be glad to know that the project will cut down their travel time dramatically. Now someone flying to Kerala, India can book tickets to the nearest airport and then can ride the seaplane to reach the desired address in a short time.

Among the places which will be the base stations initially are Kumarakom, Munnar, Ashtamudi, Punnamada and Mangalore. It’s needless to say that Kerala is a hot tourist spot in India, which has long been enticing travellers to grab flights tickets to the subcontinent frequently.
