Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy Sunday launched the country’s first seaplane service from the backwaters here. Initially, the six-seater Cessna 206 H amphibian aircraft will be utilized for this service, which will be launched officially for tourists in August.

“By the end of this year, four more companies will be launching their seaplanes and will operate them from the Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Khozikode and Mangalore airports to the backwaters in Kollam, Alappuzha, Ernakulam and Kasargode districts,” state Tourism Minister A.P. Anil Kumar said.

The launch of the service, however, faced a protest from a Left-backed fishermen’s organisation in Alappuzha, forcing the seaplane to change its landing location.
