India will get its first seaplane service this October, in the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Pawan Hans Helicopters Ltd, along with the local administration, will set up the service to ferry tourists among the 200 islands of the archipelago. This will be as part of a six-month pilot project and will connect islands like Havelock, Barren Island and Diglipur. The Aviation Ministry has been trying for a long time to get seaplanes because the country has an extensive coastline.
