Greek company Hellenic Seaplanes recently received the green light from the Zakynthos Port Fund to carry out the necessary procedures to obtain a license for the construction of a waterway at the island’s port.
The company plans to launch seaplane flights as of next year and create a network of waterways in Greece.
Hellenic Seaplanes has already applied for a waterway license for Volos.
The company has also expressed an interest to Greek port authorities to apply for the waterway licenses of Sitia, Agios Nikolaos, Skopelos, Lesvos, Kalamata and Alonissos.
“The creation of a waterways network and development of seaplane transport in Greece is now a fact and we will try to cover all destinations,” the president and CEO of Hellenic Seaplanes, Nikolas Charalambous, said in an annoucement.
“Hellenic Seaplanes is ready to start the process for the other waterways so destinations can be developed by the upcoming season of 2014,” he added.
