Seaplane tour to be launched in Tianjin in 2014

Tianjin Dongjiang Bonded Port Area is planning to build the first seaplane base in Bohai Bay region and the seaplane scenic tours are expected to open in the beginning of 2014.

China air traffic authorities have said that the decades-old ban on use of the low-altitude airspace across the country will be relaxed starting 2013.

"A feasibility study is being carried out. And the construction of the seaplane base will be started in the second half of this year. The seaplane tours will be available in the beginning of 2014,” said an executive of the China Aero Supply.

The visitors will fly in 19-seat DHC-6 Twin Otter.

In the first phase, Dongjiang Bay-Tianjin Port and Dongjiang Bay-Binhai Aircraft Carrier Theme Park routes will be provided; routes to allow visitors to get panoramic view of 16 port cities in Bohai Bay will be launched in the second phase.
