Athens operator wants to repeat Greek islands success with flights from London

Greece’s AirSea Lines is planning to introduce seaplane services to the UK and is holding talks with local stakeholders and businesses with a view to operating between London and Wales, and Cumbria in the north of England. Further expansion is also planned on the European mainland, it says.

The Athens-based company, which runs a seaplane operation throughout the Greek islands, plans to operate up to 10 de Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otters in the UK. It will offer flights to relatively inaccessible regions, landing the aircraft on lakes, estuaries and in bays “where little infrastructure is required and where there will be minimal impact on the local surroundings”, it says.

AirSea Lines Vice-President Walter Stark says: “We have satisfied all stringent environmental criteria in Greece with regards to landing on lakes and bays, therefore we can’t foresee any problems doing the same in the UK.”
