Sea Plane Kerala: Kerala may start seaplane service for tourists

Kerala may have a sea plane service to boost tourism if a study suggests that such a project is feasible, Tourism Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said Tuesday.

"The proposed project will become a reality only if the feasibility study looks into areas of pollution and whether inland water transport and fishing will be affected by the service," he said.

The minister was replying to a calling attention motion moved by Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) legislator V.N. Vasavan, who said that sea plane service were now run in Canada, the Maldives and the Philippines.

"Let the feasibility report come, then a new company can be formed. After that the marketing can begin," he added.

Vasavan said that if sea planes were introduced, tourists can arrive in any major airport and fly to any district.
