Ajay Singh, SpiceJet chairman and managing director said that they are currently in the middle of consulting experts and studying their suggestions for launching the service. The Prime Minister boarded the seaplane from a pond near Sardar Sarovar dam and landed at Sabarmati riverfront in Ahmedabad in the afternoon on Saturday. The 18-seater seaplane took about 40 minutes to complete the journey. By road, the same journey would have taken at least 4 hours. In order to help the potential passengers to get on and off the seaplane, floating concrete jetties made by Marinetek India have been installed both at the riverfront and the pond.

The service is under the complete control of SpiceJet’s fully owned subsidiary called Spice Shuttle. As of November first, two flights will be functional on the Ahbedamad-Kevadiya route. The one-way fares range from 1,500 to 5,000 rupees. SpiceJet has received a total of 3000 booking requests as of now and has started handing out tickets to the same as commercial flights have started since today. Singh also mentioned that the company is considering procuring more such aircrafts.
