Mumbai-Lonavla Seaplane Service Started

The first commercial flight of the much-awaited seaplane services take off for Pawana dam in Lonavala from Mumbai today (Aug-25-2014).

The services, which have been put off several times in the past, will be launched by the private operator Maritime Energy Heli Air Services Pvt. Ltd (Mehair) in association with Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC). 

Maharashtra is the first state to have seaplane services in the country's mainland.

Mehair has two amphibian planes in Mumbai - 
a Cessna 208 Amphibian aircraft (nine-seater) and a Cessna 206 Amphibian (four-seater). The planes were earlier used in the Andamans, and a oneway trip to Pavana dam will attract an inaugural one-way fare of Rs 2,999 per person.
