Kochi: An amphibious aircraft, purchased by Seabird Seaplane Private Ltd, an initiative of two technocrats and financially supported by an associate company of INKEL Limited, will connect destinations in Kerala and Lakshadweep. Quest Kodiak 100 amphibian, which is the first aircraft purchased by the company, has arrived at Cochin International Airport.

A second aircraft of the company is currently undergoing special modifications for water operations in the US.
