Kerala to Operate Seaplanes to Boost Tourism

Domestic and international holidaymakers booking air travel tickets aboard India flights will be the happy campers as they find out that Kerala, India’s popular state is going to offer seaplanes and special bogies to promote tourism and ensure convenient connectivity to the visitors.

The tourism authorities are coming up with a proposal of operating sea-planes on water bodies and exclusive railcars. They are contemplating to set up jetties for arrival and departure of these sea-planes - each at Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha and Kochi, considered as well-known destinations among air travellers who make tickets reservations for flights arriving in India. The operations are believed to begin by 31 January 2012.

The department has also decided two Indian trains - Trivandrum-Kozhikode Jan Shatabdi Express and the Maveli Express running between Mangalore-Trivandrum for railcars. The bogies will be completely transformed to provide comfortable and elegant facility to travellers grabbing flights tickets to explore Kerala.

Authorities believe in the idea of re-invention and aim to offer extraordinary to one and all. The fares for the introduced services are yet to be decided.

Featuring utter lushness, backwaters, ayurveda delights and more, Kerala already enjoys immense popularity among domestic as well as foreign vacationers buying tickets on flights landing in India. As the state is leaving no stone unturned to attract more and more tourists, it is expected that the efforts will definitely bear fruits.
