How will it work? Well, if a tourist wants to visit one of the destinations, like india gate or red fort, he/she can take a plane like radio taxi from their house if its located in delhi,or outstation tourists can take to the nearest airport and then the seaplane will ensure that he/she reaches his/her visit destination in a short time. Officials say that this project can help cut down travel time from six hours to 20 minutes. It will also be a unique experience for the tourists.
Not entirely unpredictable, the seaplane service has run into controversy, with fishermen from yamuna nalla backed by politicians protesting against it, their contention is that the livelihood of locals will be hit. Fishermen fear the seaplanes will affect inland fishing and a clutch of environmentalists are backing them. On the first day of the service, hundreds of fishermen blocked the landing area with their boats to protest against the seaplane service.
Meanwhile, houses came crashing down in cinematic fashion after a sea plane landed and went into a large farm house mistaking it for a hangar.
