With the development of the Dubai Cruise Terminal and a successful 2009-2010 cruise season flying over one thousand five hundred passengers, Seawings, the Middle East's only Seaplane tour operator, will continue to expand its cruise operations.
Given the current market growth and demand for exciting experiences expected for the 2010-2011 cruise season, Seawings will have two seaplanes permanently based at Port Rashid Cruise terminal as well as a fully operational check in terminal lounge.
Commenting on the expansion, Prerna Fogat, Business Manager of Seawings said, "Since starting operations in late 2007, the partnership with the cruise lines has been a successful endeavour. With the cruise segment growing and guests having very limited time in each destination, we worked to establish an operation departing directly from the Port Rashid cruise terminal to offer guests a way to see Dubai and all its icons in less than an hour. The seaplane experience provides guests with a unique way to discover the sheer scale of Dubai from the sky."
The additional capacity, with the two seaplanes permanently based at the cruise terminal, will allow Seawings the ability to handle the required demand as it enters the 2010-2011 cruise season. With the increase of Cruise line traffic and cruise liners like Costa,
Aida and Royal Caribbean adding extra fleet to the region, Seawings will continue to develop its seaplane services and will design packages and offerings specifically for the cruise lines and their guests.
Based at Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa, Seawings began operating with one aircraft and a handful of staff. Today the company has grown to include three Cessna 208 Caravan amphibious aircraft and a staff base of over 30.
The Seawings experience leaves its guests in awe as they are whisked to 1500 feet past some of the world's most iconic landmarks, for memories that last a lifetime. Offering up to 16 flights per day, leaving every 30 minutes, as well as a choice of various tour options, Seawings caters to the needs of the individuals, groups, corporate, incentives, tourists and residents.
