Mumbai firm brings seaplane to Kochi

Kochi: Three years after the government's ambitious seaplane project was stalled, a Mumbai-based seaplane operator has brought its aircraft to the state to benefit from the state's early bird incentive.

MEHAIR's seaplane, with the call sign VT-MHB, landed at the Cochin International Airport at 1.15pm on Sunday.

Minister for tourism A P Anilkumar said the seaplane would start operating only after taking fishermen into confidence. A demonstration flight for fishermen would be conducted in 10 days, he said.
