The less said about the state of waterbodies in Indian metros, the better, but things are swell—even scenic—with rivers and lakes at other places. Which is why the Government of India is planning waterfront aerodromes for seaplane and helicopter services at six sites across the country: Guwahati, Nagarjuna Sagar Dam, Sabarmati River, Shatrunjaya Dam, the Statue of Unity (Sardar Sarovar Dam) and the Umrangso reservoir. The services will be started under the Udan scheme. As per reports, given the vast number of dams, rivers, lakes and ports in India, the government has recognised the potential seaplanes hold and has even held a trial run.


Statue of unity brings the whole region in global tourism map. Seaplane service can bring more tourist.
