The sea-plane which will endow air connectivity from Sabarmati River front in Ahmedabad to Statue of Unity in Kevadia in Gujarat took off from the Maldives capital Malé.
Dr Rajiv Kumar Gupta, Additional Chief Secretary, Forest and Environment Department and managing director of Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd. (GNFC), tweeted a video of the seaplane taking off from Malé for Kevadia.
He mentioned in the tweet that it would be a regular seaplane service in Gujarat with four flights a day. The seaplane will connect two great and visionary projects given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the nation- Sabarmati River Front and Statue of Unity. A gigantic leap in making Kevadia a truly international tourist spot (sic), Dr Rajiv Kumar Gupta said.
