Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a seaplane service between the Statue of Unity near Kevadiya in Gujarat's Narmada district and Sabarmati Riverfront in Ahmedabad.
Modi inaugurated the service by boarding the twin- engine plane from pond-3 close to Sardar Sarovar Dam near Kevadiya.
Before boarding the plane, Modi spent some time at the water aerodrome and took details about the service.
The 19-seater plane carrying Modi would land on the waters of Sabarmati Riverfront in around 40 minutes after covering a distance of around 200 kms, officials said.
